The Mediterranean climate produces an amazing range of wines and cavas of excellent character and quality, and it also offers a variety of fantastic biking routes through the lush vineyards and rolling coastal hills year round. Just south of bustling Barcelona, the quiet lanes of Penedès take you deep into the heart of this wine region's villages and vineyards for a well-rounded day that includes bicycling, fresh air, culture, delicious Catalan food, and incomparable wine tasting.
This day trip can be a leisurely ride through the rolling hills and winding lanes that cross the dense grapevines of Penedès, or a morning of challenging mountain biking through the Garraf coastal mountains. The 2-3 hour ride is staggered between winery and restaurant stops, making this a very pleasant and non-strenuous backroads day excursion that has proven successful with wine connoisseurs, as well as general wine enthusiasts and adventurers. It is a hands-on, informative approach to understanding grape varieties and wine production of the past and present. A local expert hosts this day with explanations and generous wine tasting of several reds, whites, rosés, and cavas, which you are welcome to enjoy again and again at the wineries and during your traditional Catalan lunch or dinner.
