A unique Emporda winery is your first destination today, hidden away in the hills, not far from the fishing port of Palamos. This recently built ecological winery is unlike anything you have seen before; it is an amazing edifice, taking into account the needs of wine-making, designed by local architects, RCR; who won the Pritzker Prize for the work. The grape vines growing in the fields surrounding the area are cultivated organically and harvesting is done entirely by hand, to ensure that every grape is of the highest quality to produce the finest wines. Your Romantic Barcelona & Mediterranean Escape Tour will give you al private tour in the company of their wine expert, taking in the facilities at this awe-inspiring winery, followed by a tasting of their very best wines, along with cheeses, bread and home-made olive oil. Lunch will also be enjoyed here, with their own country fare produce, including local meats and sausages.
After lunch, you are free to spend your time as you wish. We suggest a visit to the prettiest nearby towns of the Costa Brava; Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc. There are plenty of scenic walks to explore the area and picturesque ocean front spots to relax watching the world go gently by, perhaps with a coffee or ice cream cone in hand. If you prefer, you can visit the local medieval villages of Pals and Peratallada. Visiting these beautifully preserved villages is like taking a step back in time; as you wander the narrow cobblestone streets and peruse the artisan shops retailing crafts of Olde Worlde days.
Tour in a nutshell: Private guided tour of Emporda winery with wine tasting. Visits to medieval villages. Overnight in the Emporda region.
