Champagne Winery with a private guide


The first bottle of Champagne produced in Spain was in 1872. Today the champagne produced in Spain is called Cava. In the Penedés and the Anoia area there are several Cava companies, which make almost all of the Champagne produced in Spain. In fact the little village of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, where we will go, is so-called "the capital of the Cava".

The biggest companies are Codorniu and Freixenet. Both produce more than 200 millions of bottles per year, but we will visit a small and familiar cellar, founded in 1924. They still produce their cava in handmade process and visits are limited to a maximum of 12 people.

We will understand the aging process of the "Cava". We will see how, manually, they disgorge the bottles without freezing the bottleneck (only experienced professionals are able to do that). Visit to the Pupitres (special racks) where they do the manual riddling. And you will taste 3 long-aged brut nature cavas.

If you want we can extend the tour and have a typical Catalan lunch in Sant Sadurní
