Wine & Cava
Cheese & Ham
Visit two wineries and learn how to pair wine with cheese & ham
and enjoy great Cava
Ham and cheese are two of the pillars of the Mediterranean diet. In the same way that each wine is unique, so is each ham and cheese. Playing with the combination of these products together with wine can be exciting.
Choose if you prefer to pair wine & cheese or wine & ham, whatever you like the most.
On this tour I will take you to two wineries, both family-run exclusive wineries in the heart of Penedes.
We will first start our tour to the cava winery.
This charming small family-run winery only produces organic cava, and their old farm house is more than 800 years old!
We will start our tour in the old farm house, before we will go down into the wine-cellar, where you will have a tour on how cava is produced. This is truly a fun experience.
After the tour in the cellar, it's time for some tasting of 3-4 different kinds of cava.
Only a short drive from this winery lies our next stop; a beautiful and elegant family-run winery on top of a hill overlooking the vineyards of Penedes.
This winery has a very interesting background very different from any other winery. What this is, you will discover on the tour!
This winery was the first in Penedes to introduce French grape varieties to Spain, quite groundbreaking for its time. Their wines have won several awards, and in 1981 their wines were chosen for the former president Ronald Reagan’s official inaugural dinner at the White House.
We will start our tour outside the winery where you will be able to see the different kinds of grapes they use. From here we will go inside, where you will see both the new facilities and go down into the wine cellar where they keep all their barrels.
After the tour in the winery comes the best part; pairing wine and cheese/ham while overlooking the vineyards from the hilltop.
This is a truly fun and interesting way to learn how to pair wine with food. Most times we don't really think about how food can have an impact on the wine, and vice versa, but on this tour you will learn more about this. You will be able to try 4 different wines together with 4 different cheeses or ham, and all with its own characteristic & flavor.
