A relaxed start, no driving, just eating and drinking some great local products which are explained to you in English, meeting the owners, winemakers and artisans of the places we visit, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the trip!
Wineries are in the Empordà region which is near the French border in the pre-Pyrenees and are family owned, small and with a range of wines to suit all palates. Lunch can be at the winery or in a local restaurant but is always from the classic healthy Mediterranean diet.
In the afternoon we can either go visit another winery or see the views of the Costa Brava from the heights of a 10th C monastery and then visit a shop full of locally produced foods, olive oils and wines all packaged to take home.
On the return trip a walk around a fishing village with a fish auction on some days, and then relax on a terrace overlooking the harbour or a visit to one of the best goat cheese producers with their own herd of goats, amazing underground cellar for maturing the cheese and then a tasting of the different cheeses paired with a typical wine.
You get home around 6pm understanding this area better through the variety of great food and wines you tasted during the day. They don’t call this the Tuscany of Spain for nothing, you will not be dissapointed!
