Begin your journey through Spanish Wine Country in the area to the north and south of Barcelona. Follow the Route of the Cistercians through Cava and Penedès, where monastery and winery appear as rocky outcrops on gentle slopes, and vineyards surround centuries-old farms, in turn surrounded by the lands of ancient monasteries.

"A wonderful trip! I learned and saw so much, it made my head spin!! I can’t say enough about how wonderful our guides were! Gabriella Ranelli, a rare gem!
