For those who enjoy wine one of the best things you can do in Barcelona and Catalonia is a tour of the wine routes. Catalonia has more than ten designations of origin, so there are many wineries to visit to try out and find how do wines and champagnes are made in the region. If you come to Barcelona you can visit some wineries on the route of Anoia.

Wine tours and visits to wineries in Barcelona

This time I recommend a brief walk through the area of Anoia, famous for its excellent wine cellar that is manufactured there.

The first stop and you can not miss is a visit to the cellars of Freixenet, which is about 40 minutes from Barcelona. The visit to the winery starts with an explanation of the process of making champagne. The tour ends with a tasting of a glass of champagne. The entrance to the winery costs € 6.10 and children under 9 enter for free. To reach the winery you’ll need to take a train train (R4 direction Tarragona / Tortosa) to the Sant Sadurní d’Anoia station. The entrance to the winery is about 50 meters from the station.

If you go to Sant Saturni d’Anoia, you can also visit the following cava wineries:
