Cellars and Wineries
The Penedès is one of the leading wine producing and exporting regions, internationally known for its variety and high quality. Twenty-six thousand hectares of vines cultivated with loving care and a combination of age-old knowledge and the latest technology make possible the yearly miracle of the grape harvest and the production of wines that have become the centre of an an entire culture.
Cava, a sparkling wine that has made the Penedès world famous, has been made with the region’s own varieties for nearly one hundred and fifty years. Sant Sadurní d’Anoia produces 90% of the cava drunk around the world. Underground is an intricate labyrinth where the bottles rest in the quiet still embrace of the earth as the liquid inside them turns into sparkling cava. The cava cellars and wineries offer guided visits in different languages.
