Food, Wine and Culture in Catalonia

Situated in the northeast corner of the Iberian peninsula, Catalonia has it all – history, striking beauty, a world-renowned food scene, and excellent wines.

GrapeHops tour of this glorious region includes nine days and nights exploring the gorgeous cities of Girona and Tarragona, the D.O. wine regions of Priorat, Penedes, Alt-Emporda and Conca de Barberà. Barcelona is the largest city in Catalonia and this tour combined with a few days in that magnificent city will give you a real insight into the land, culture and people of Catalonia.

Some highlights of the trip:

  •  Visits to several wineries (of course)
  • Tastings of regional specialties
  • City tours in Girona and Tarragona
  • An overnight in Montserrat, where you can see the famous boy’s choir and explore the mountain and monastery
  • A cooking class in a gorgeous vineyard setting
  • Tapas & wine crawls, gourmet dinners and lunches, and “epic picnics”
  • And much more!

Our 2020 Catalonia will coincide with the end of the Concurs de Castells, the bi-annual competition of castellers (human towers.) This is an incredible two-day event held in the Tarragona bullring. The tour ends the morning of the first day, so it is possible to extend your journey to see some of this extraordinary event. You can read more about the Concurs de Castells here – https://eng.concursdecastells.cat/ and do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions.
