This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • rewarding routes amid countless bodegas
  • immersion in a fascinating local wine culture
  • high-quality accommodation with pools
  • easy access from Barcelona

 

Less than an hour from Barcelona is Penedès, one of Europe’s most diverse and exciting wine regions. In this land of rolling vineyards, far-reaching views and almost 300 bodegas, you can immerse yourself in making culture and traditions, as you enjoy a compelling, two-wheeled adventure through ‘Cava Country’.

This cycling holiday is a great way to explore one of Europe’s most intriguing and innovative wine regions. It offers plentiful tastings – not only of Cava, the ‘Spanish champagne’, but of superb reds and whites too – and is fizzingly good fun!

Winemakers have been busy here since the Phoenicians came ashore over 2,000 years ago, and the rich red soil, warm weather and wide variety of micro-climates – governed by varying altitudes and the proximity of the sea – have helped to nurture an increasingly varied output ever since. Well-known brands of bubbly like Freixenet and Cordoníu are balanced by smaller, family-run wineries where bottles are still painstakingly turned by hand; and the hill-top villages, welcoming ‘foodie’ guesthouses and splashes of Modernist architecture you encounter make for an intensely rewarding few days in the saddle.
