Montserrat, Tapas and Wine Half-Day Tour from Barcelona
Taste delicious Spanish wines and tapas at the 10th-century Oller del Mas castle on a 5-hour tour from Barcelona that also includes a short visit to the stunning Montserrat mountain complex, surrounded by gorgeous fields and jaw dropping views.
Escape to the natural landscape of the Montserrat mountains on a half-day sightseeing and wine tasting tour from Barcelona, enjoying breathtaking views and the Catalan wines of the 10th-century Oller del Mas castle.
The strange shaped mountains of Montserrat is the location of a Benedictine monastery that has been a site of pilgrimage for centuries, thanks to its story of the miracles performed by the Virgin Mary and the fabled 12th-century image of Our Lady.
After a short visit to this historic site, head to Oller del Mas Castle, just a few minutes away, and tour one of the most important wineries in the region. Located in an impressive castle that’s more than 1,000 years old, the winery boasts more than 1,000 acres of beautiful land.
Tours are kept to a maximum of 15 people for a more intimate experience, and include a tour of the vineyards and “treasures room,” where the Oller del Mas chateaux wines become older and wiser.
Thanks to the cellar oenologists, you will sense the history, soil, sun, and rain that influence the 3 wines you will taste. Learn about the upkeep of the vines, the grape harvest, how the French oak barrels impact on the flavor, and more. To keep you on your feet, the tasting table will be laden with the finest Spanish tapas, including organic cheeses, fresh bread, and scrumptious pastries.
