Lose yourself in a rustic bodega, visit a 1000 year old castle and taste the local food in a local gourmet restaurant.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO
A visit to a tiny local winery hidden in a shaded valley to find out why, just 30 minutes from the coast, its climate is more continental than Mediterranean. Taste the wines with some breakfast before walking up to visit the ancient medieval castle and enjoy the spectacular views over the Girona landscape and out to the sea. Finish up with a gastronomic delight in a little known restaurant.
The visit starts at a tiny winery which produces small unusual varieties unknown to the area. Apart from tasting their wines we’ll enjoy a typical Catalan breakfast before we set off up the hill to the castle, which dates from the middle ages (X Century). From there we’ll take in the amazing views, which reach all the way to Barcelona and discover the inside of the castle.
After making the trip down we’ll be rewarded with a gourmet tasting menu with pairing of wines in a Michelin star restaurant close by.
