From Barcelona: Full-Day Montserrat & Wine Small Group Tour
Enjoy an inclusive, intimate tour of the Montserrat wine region on a full-day tour from Barcelona. Discover the National Park of Montserrat, enjoy delicious Catalan cuisine, and visit Oller del Mas, a Millennial Castle where you will enjoy a chateau wine!
Montserrat is the most important mountain in Catalonia. It is a unique massif, famous for its gothic shapes and breathtaking views, and is known as the symbol of the Catalan people. You will experience it first-hand on a full-day tour that makes it apparent to you why Montserrat is so closely linked to the Catalan identity.
On the way to Montserrat, your guide will introduce you to this “magic mountain” where Mother Nature meets religion, history, and the identity of the Catalans. Enjoy the stunning landscape of this Natural Park. The guided tour includes a short walk to the monastery where you can enjoy the spectacular views and get a true feel of the spirituality Montserrat has to offer.
After Montserrat, head to the Oller del Mas Castle, just a few minutes away from Montserrat, and one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region. Located in an impressive castle dating more than a thousand years old, the winery reigns over 1000 acres of land with a golf course open to the public.
In the clubhouse restaurant you will be served with an exquisite selected 3-course menu featuring favorites of the region paired with wines produced organically from the vineyard. Get your swimming suit on as well, as there is a pool you may swim in after eating!
In the afternoon, your expert enologist will guide you to visit the cellar and take you through the vines for a beautiful walk. You will learn how the wine is made and you will discover all its secrets.
Then visit the castle for a tour, stopping off in the “treasure room” where the Oller del Mas chateaux wines become older and wiser. Here you may sit, close your eyes, and enjoy the wonderful miracle of the various wines offered, tasting the history, soil, climate, and everything else that makes Oller del Mas Castle so special.
