Enjoy a unique experience with Artcava. You'll travel by train from Barcelona to the heart of the wine-growing region of El Penedés, where an expert guide will take you through the vineyards and the small winery. You'll taste a 100% artisan cava and make your own bottle of this famous Catalan sparkling wine.
You'll start the day with a train ride, guided by an expert in the history and geography of El Penedés. Once there, you'll visit the vineyards, the facilities and the historic winery. You'll taste three types of cava
, and try your hand at disgorging a bottle. After you've visited the wine-making room and chosen the bottle you like the best, you'll make your own cava with your own hands
. You'll disgorge the bottle, put on the label, put in the cork, attach the metal capsule and take it home with you as a memento of an unforgettable day.
