Intimate Champagne & Chocolate Getaway

Spend a relaxed day with us away from the bustling city and discover Cava & Chocolate - a local tradition.

We will visit picturesque Sant Sadurni just 45 minutes outside of Barcelona in the famous Penedès wine region. When arriving at the train station we are greeted by the smell of freshly roasted cocoa beans. This quiet market town is not only home of the best Catalan chocolate maker but also the center of Cava production - the local sparkling wine made according to the same method and quality as French Champagne.

A short 10 minutes walk will lead us to an artisan Cava maker. With a history spanning more than 150 years this small scale, the family-run winery focuses on crafting premium quality, organic Cava. Descending into the cellars where the bottles are resting we will explain the history & methods used to create high quality sparkling wine. Upstairs we will have the chance to observe the disgorging & labeling process. We finish this experience in the leafy courtyard where we will take our time to enjoy various vintages while learning more about the different types of Cava.

After a stroll through the village's narrow streets, we arrive at the chocolate factory with a tradition of 175 years. Here we will enjoy a unique experience for all five senses. Not only will we learn about cocoa, chocolate’s history & culture but also taste their different specialties.

About the host: Originally from Germany we have been living in Barcelona for more than 8 years. Next to our native German we are fluent in Dutch and English. We love sharing our fascination for Barcelona and surroundings with travellers from all over the world. Our passion has always been enjoying food and wine. And here in Catalonia we found the perfect combination: Chocolate & Cava - the local sparkling wine that is created with the same method, care and love for quality as Champagne. For years we have been befriended with this small, family run winery making premium organic sparkling wine that won several important medals. Together we want you to discover more than the usual and provide a truly special Cava experience!
