Now in its 12th edition, this summer festival celebrates the exceptional partnership of jazz and wine. Taking place in the Catalan town of Vilafranca del Penedès, a short train ride from Barcelona, a variety of venues host tastings and concerts featuring some of the biggest names in jazz in the world. Musicians like Chick Corea, Maceo Parker and Chano Dominguez, among a long list of other stars, have elevated Vijazz to the list of Europe's best jazz festivals.

When it comes to the wine and cava, this is your chance to try some of the best reds, whites, rosés and cavas from the celebrated region of Penedès; around 40 different wine-makers take part, alongside local restaurants offering specially created tapas and numerous producers of Catalan gourmet specialities including ham, cheese and smoked fish. It's also a great opportunity to explore the town in between chilling out to the music and sampling the delicious food and drink.
