If you’re looking for a relaxed activity but can’t seem to pull yourself away from the bar stool, then you need to experience wine tasting – only If you’re over 18 years old, of course! It’s an affordable yet unmissable adventure, taking you an hour away from the thriving city centre and into a peaceful, authentic and mountainous part of Spain you could only dream about!
From the 1st April until the 31st October, the winery in Pacs del Penedès of Vilafranca is open to the public to discover the traditional wine making process and the legacy of the Torres family itself. The tour, which is available in multiple languages, will take you across the vast vineyards at the Mas la Plana Estate and deep into the cellars to unveil the secrets of the Earth and the creation of such a high quality wine. The tour is completed with the fortune to taste the various delicacies the vineyard has to offer!
But that’s not it! In addition, you have the opportunity to participate in either The Torres Selection Tasting (a commented tasting of five wines) or you can delve deeper into Mediterranean gastronomy with a Wine and Cheese Pairing session (a commented pairing of four wines and four cheeses).
At the end of the day when the sun is setting and you’re feeling lazy or slightly tipsy, you can stay local in Vilafranca and taste great food within a close proximity to the train station. There are many sweet, independent restaurants all worth a visit. Why not try El Caliu on el Carrer del Casal? It has been praised for its great quality and fair prices.
First of all, you will need to reserve your spaces on the Club Torres website. Then, from just 15 euros, you can buy your tickets from a Renfe station and this will cover your travel costs towards Vilafranca where you will be met by a guide who will take you by taxi to Torres and your entry into the vineyard.
It’s as easy as that to discover a rustic new world!
