Grape harvest time
A UNIQUE TOURISM EXPERIENCE
The culture of wine and cava.
In Catalonia, its history is full of the aroma and taste of wine.
Wine tourism allows visitors to learn more first-hand about this magical transformation of the grape. The grape harvest is one of the most important moments in the elaboration of a good wine. It is when the grapes are harvested to prepare the wines and cavas of the season.
The climatic conditions of this spring, with the lack of rainfall, have conditioned grape production. This season the forecasts are lower than the average of previous years, but with a very healthy grape quality.
The grape harvest has always been associated with celebrations. In some areas of the territory, the grape harvest coincides with local festivities. Since ancient times, the grape harvest has also had a ritualistic quality due to its deep roots in Mediterranean culture and its popularity among grape harvesters. Some wineries have programmed different activities, in small group format, and applying strict hygiene and safety measures.
The grape harvest has always been one of the most important moments in the production of a good wine. It is when the raw materials are collected to prepare the wines of the year. It is a great celebration in all the Wine Routes around Catalonia and Spain.
From the agency Tours & Experiences Catalunya we offer different proposals to enjoy, in a full way, the harvest season with unique experiences. In the #BusXperience program, the Daily Tours invite participants to learn about the culture of cava from Bodegas Codorniu.
Its cellars in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, designed by the architect Puig i Cadafalch, were declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1976, as a key work of Catalan modernism.
To visit Codorniu is to travel to the origin and history of cava and to discover in depth the process of its elaboration.
On the other hand, the #VipXperience programs offer the most exclusive Wine Tours to learn about the culture of wine and cava at its best, the artisanal processes of its production and a very different proposal at harvest time. The private tour is an unforgettable experience to enjoy the tradition, history and tasting of the most prestigious wines and sparkling wines of each region.
It is grape harvest time. A historical tradition deeply rooted in all grape producing regions and especially in Catalonia.
