If you are planning a trip to Barcelona and wish to make a private day tour which offers something a little different, but needs to remain within Kosher dietary boundaries, then we have the perfect answer; a private wine tour including a visit to a prestigious winery which produces some of the most well-known Kosher Wines, with a private tour of the facilities, followed by a tasting of their best Kosher wines.
Your private chauffeur, in an luxury air conditioned vehicle, will collect you from your hotel or cruise ship dock in Barcelona first thing in the morning and you will depart for the famous and very beautiful Priorat wine region, less than 2 hours drive south of Barcelona.
There, you will visit a prestigious Kosher winery, where you will be taken on a private tour by the bilingual house wine expert, who will gladly explain to you their long history and tradition of wine making. Kosher wines were introduced here when the Jewish community of Barcelona asked the winery to begin making kosher wines in 1995. Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, as well as excellent indigenous Spanish varieties of Garnacha and Cariñena are present. The special equipment allows the winemakers to identify, isolate and vinify under controlled "non-Mevushal" conditions small parcels of high quality fruit. Your complete wine cellar tour will finish with a commented tasting of the winery’s best red, white and modern sweet wines.
To follow, your private chauffeur will drive you to a wonderful forest area where you will be able to relax and enjoy a delicious picnic lunch which will have been prepared by a fantastic Kosher restaurant/delicatessen of Barcelona. (Please note that the Kosher Picnic lunch is only available from Monday to Friday). To accompany your picnic, your choice of fine Kosher wine from the winery you have just visited – Enjoy!
Alternatively, and especially in the Winter months, an excellent (non kosher) Priorat tasting menu lunch with a selection of Priorat wines is served at the best local restaurant.
After lunch, your journey will pass by the heart of the Priorat wine region and the scenic mountain roads will lead you past some of the most beautiful spots of the Priorat countryside, including the Scala Dei village and monastery (where the Carthusian monks started to make Priorat wine over a thousand years ago!), where you might wish to stop and visit.
Your chauffeur will return you to Barcelona after your visit to Priorat wine country, to your hotel or to the port to your cruise ship by approximately 6-7 pm.
As with many of our Food and Wine Tours, there are alternative transport options. This Wine Tour can be carried out with arrival by train from Barcelona (tickets included) and services of an excellent local driver after the winery visit and for your return to Barcelona.
We hope you will join us for this memorable day.
