As tour guide I am always happy to read when customers had a great time. This is the highest compliment that I can receive.

As Michael read how amazing the Priorat area was supposed to be we decided to rent a car and drive there on a Saturday and find out on our own.

Cava & Chocolate – the perfect combination for your senses!

Explore the perfect combination for your senses: enjoy a glass of cava together with fine chocolate. We had this wonderful experience in Sant Sadurni d´Anoia. A tour at the premises of a tradition, family run cava maker and premium cava tasting in their backyard. Afterwards we had this fantastic 4 course lunch menu in the best restaurant in the center of the town. And to round off the gourmet experience we visited Chocolatier Simon Coll

Splendid Cava and Chocolate

Cava is the protected name for sparkling wine that is produced in Catalonia – its production process is similar to Champagne, however, more reasonably priced than the French one. Sant Sadurni d´Anoia is the town – just 45 minutes away from Barcelona – where 90% of the Cava production takes place. So, for the 75th birthday of Michael´s father we planned a surprise day in the wine area. We could easily get there by train
