Jump into spring discovering the Penedès Wine Region
The beginning of spring means that life in the vineyards is unfolding before our eyes... and that everyone wants to leave the cold behind and go out for outdoor activities!
The landscape changes almost every week and different colors burst in the landscape, so one of the best things to do in spring is to just take a walk among the vineyards to see the first sprouts and leaves in the vines and take photographs of what surrounds you.
Whatever the reason for your visit, you will find that spring in Penedès is a wonderful time, with a slower pace to enjoy all that it has to offer. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Vineyards start sprouting... and so do wine fairs! During the month of May, if evrything goes as planned, there many upcoming wine events and fairs around.
Riudevins, in Sant Pere de Riudebitlles, gives a very original concept, as you can taste wines from the Mediona-Riudebitlles stream valley in private homes. They open their doors and cellars uncer their houses, located in the oldest part of town. Go inside the private homes and talk to the producers themselves!
ViArt will also arrive in Sant Llorenç d’Hortons in May, which obviously merges these two themes. The fair includes organic wines and cavas tastings, tapas from local restaurants, craft stalls and activities.
In Avinyonet del Penedès, a long-awaited event for locals and visitors is held: Microvi. This is a wine fair that lets everyone discover microwineries, local products, natural wines and even a night event dedicated to the Sumoll grape variety. The fair takes place in different emblematic sites of the town, such as the incomparable setting of the Romanesque monastery of Sant Sebastià dels Gorgs.
And if you want to suit up to welcome spring, don't miss the opportunity to book your ticket to the Festa de la Floració de la Carretera del Vi -The Wine Road Flowering Fest-, a white-party with dinner and live music that annually gathers the 13 wineries and points of interest of this route to introduce it to the attendees.
