Discovering the Penedès at your own pace through the Caminos del Cava

Discovering the Penedès at your own pace through the Caminos del Cava

BETWEEN SEA AND MOUNTAIN, EL PENEDÉS

Less than an hour by car from Barcelona we find the Penedès region, a valley protected by the Montserrat mountain where we find natural parks, mountains and beautiful towns and cities with a perfect climate for growing high-quality grapes.

The roads of the Penedès run through a landscape dotted with vineyards bathed in the sun and the Mediterranean Sea, pine forests, scattered villages full of history, tradition and culture.

There are different ways to get to know the area, through a walk among the vineyards on foot or by bicycle, with a meal with unique and native products such as xató, a festival with history such as the Festival of the Phylloxera in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia (September ), an authentic Castellera day in Vilafranca del Penedès, a visit to one of its castles… or even with a good glass of cava!

CAVA, THE SPARKLING WINE

Cava is the sparkling wine par excellence in Catalonia and fills all Catalans with pride. The best way to discover all the secrets of its elaboration and find the modality that we like the most is touring the Penedès wineries!

Cava is a sparkling wine, made using traditional methods typical of the Catalan region and adapted to the many grape varieties from this area, such as xarel lo, parellada or macabeo. Also, depending on the amount of sugar added to the wine and the maturation time in the bottles, we find different varieties such as the Bruts, the Brut Nature, the Dulces … As well as the Rosés, which have been so popular in recent years.

But what really makes this cava a unique product are the special characteristics of the Penedès lands; the rest of the grape juice in large underground cellars; the affection with which they are cultivated, cared for and collected; and the tradition and production techniques of the wineries.

Between the sea and the mountains, these wines are the result of a long professional path of many families towards excellence. A DO with different microclimates, soils and landscapes, from the green of the mountains to the blue of the sea, which brings great diversity to its wines.

We want to offer you a perfect plan to explore the Penedès, discovering some of the best Catalan cava cellars and the best natural landscapes: Camins del cava. An initiative of the Association of Cava Producers, AECAVA, in collaboration with the Sant Sadurní d'Anoia City Council and the Barcelona Provincial Council.

CAVA WALK

Camins del cava is a wine tourism proposal that combines walks among the vineyards of the Penedès, on foot or by bicycle, around Sant Sadurní d'Anoia with visits to wineries and good gastronomy in local restaurants.

Through the interactive web with geolocation (it is not necessary to download any app) www.caminsdelcava.com, we will find all the necessary information to create our own itinerary. It consists of a network of paths (tracks and trails) that gives us the freedom to choose the path we want to travel, making it as easy as possible to access the rest of the wineries from any winery. In addition, we will also find the schedules of the wineries, the time it takes to complete each section, information on restaurants, accommodation and other points of interest such as shops, bicycle rental companies, car parks and museums.

This web application is a new way to discover the territory and get closer to the culture of cava in a sustainable way. In this first phase of the project there are 22 adhered wineries from Sant Sadurní d'Anoia together with the adjoining areas of Subirats and Torrelavit.

Any time of the year is a good time to explore these itineraries, but from August 26 to September 25, the AECAVA takes us, once again, La Vendimia del Cava to sixteen wineries located in the Penedès, taking advantage of the fact that it is harvest time, where they will show the secrets of cava production with activities for all audiences such as concerts among the vineyards, peasant breakfasts, nature outings with bicycles, brunch and lunch among vines, dinners under the stars, Nordic walking along rural roads, activities for the most little ones in the family...

If you want to live a unique experience surrounded by an exceptional landscape, as a couple, with friends or with family, enjoying cava and the cuisine of Penedès, at your own pace and without hurry, do not hesitate to schedule your next getaway on the calendar with the name of Cava paths!
