Bringing together three popular elements of Catalan culture, music, wine and gastronomy, this annual festival organises intimate concerts (many of them outdoors) in wineries around the Penedès, Bagès and Empordà areas of Catalonia. Vinya means 'vine' in Catalan, and sons translates as 'sounds', describing the fusion of these two art forms, and during the summer months numerous events around the region showcase their natural relationship. Combining beautiful Catalan landscapes, the warm evenings of the season, quality musical performances, and tastings of local wines, cavas and other specialities, it's the ideal marriage of food, drink and entertainment.
Among the artists taking part, you might hear a chamber orchestra, a barbershop quartet or a rising Catalan pop star. What's more, VinyaSons is an excellent opportunity to sample local wine and cava varieties you might not yet be familiar with, and discover why Catalan wines are increasingly popular with critics and the public alike.

Wine and cava aficionados shouldn't miss this fair, which this year marks its 38th edition and is an excellent opportunity to get to know many of the locally made vintages, along with some typical regional foods. Catalonia has a long history of wine-making, with the Greeks first introducing vines to the northern Empordà area, and the Romans following suit albeit further south in Tarragona.
In recent times, the profile of Catalan winemakers has grown significantly among both critics and the general public, and the quality of their output is generally agreed to improve year on year. Areas such as Priorat, Montsant and Costers del Segre are renowned for their products, while the one with the largest number of vineyards, Penedès, is the source of many popular cava and wine varieties. The weekend wine fair promises once more to be a time of sampling fine wine, brilliant bubbly and appetising bites to eat.
