The Penedes Countryside
It can be easy to forget when roaming the winding streets of the Gothic quarter that Barcelona is surrounded by beautiful countryside. From the city itself, you can see Mount Tibidabo and the surrounding hills and even climb to the top of this landmark.
However, to be truly immersed in Catalonia’s greenery, you need to leave the twisting alleyways behind and cycle out into the surrounding areas. The bike tour and wine tasting offers not only an active and engaging journey for your private group, but also an escape from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.
The Penedes regions are home to many wineries, both large and small. The Penedes area is located to the South of Catalunya and sits between the pre-coastal mountain range and Meditteranean sea.
The Wine Regions
The Penedes has is divided into three main subzones.
- Alt Penedès is the furthest inland and most mountainous subzone. It produces a lower quantity of wine but higher quality grapes that go on to create some of the fine wines from the area.
- Penedès Central, it is located to the southwest of the area. It is the largest producing region of the three.
- Baix Penedès, low-lying warmer coastal areas. Here they produce many of the red wines from the area
The whole of the Penedes area is responsible for producing around 20 million litres of wine a year!
