Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Abadia de Montserrat, Carretera BP-1121 S/N, 08199 Montserrat Spain

Enjoy a guided tour in Montserrat and visit all the highlights of the monastery by the hand of your local tour guide. You will then enjoy some free time to a palate some traditional foods made by Montserrat monks or farmers, as well as soaking in this special place where nature, culture and spirituality meet. Meet your tour guide again to get on board for the second part of the tour. Oller del Mas cellar awaits!

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Oller del Mas, Carretera Igualada Km 91, 08241 Manresa Spain

Oller del Mas cellar is located in a magnificent natural setting, facing Montserrat and surrounded by endless vineyards, pine forests and cereal fields. Oller del Mas will welcome you with an extra glass of wine along with a platter of local farmers’ cheeses – the same that are sold in Montserrat Monastery. That will be the starting of your wine tour along Oller del Mas premises that will culminate, of course, with a wine tasting of three ecological wines paired with Spanish traditional tapas. We cannot think of a better plan to escape the rush of Barcelona and enjoy some fresh air in the Spanish countryside!

After a day trip of indulging, head back to Barcelona to reach the city center in mid-afternoon, just on time for some shopping or exploring the city further.


Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Castlexperience - Wine Tours, St. Montsio 10 Rusc de Turisme, 08002 Barcelona Spain

‘Now I get it’, you say to yourself. As you appreciate the contour of the magnificent peaks of Montserrat rising in the distance, in a beautiful horizon, between vineyards and pine tree forests, you get to understand. You’ve been told all about its legends and myths during the morning, you’ve climbed its steep walls on the scenic train ride to the monastery. But it is now, from afar, contemplating how the mountain range reigns over the landscape in the distance, that you finally understand how this massif acquired its atmosphere of myth and legend. You turn around to face the rest of the group. With a glass of wine in your hand, you listen to your tour guide’s voice. It talks of generations, roots and ancient traditions. The sun feels warm in the courtyard by the castle’s façade, in the winery. Carried away, you close your eyes to embrace the tingling sensation of the wine in your tongue, mixed with the words and the overall ambience of quiet and peace.

This tour was the perfect amount of time to see a little of everything. One could truly spend much more time at each location obviously but this a vacation and variety is the spice of life! Our tour guide Jordi was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and personable. The bus was comfortable and quick ride to beautiful Mont Serrat. I would recommend hiking to the lookout point before the alcohol tasting! I would also highly recommend anyone to the Wine and Tapas option if you are looking for a lighter affair although the full lunch option seemed great too. The wines are top notch and so was the food spread. I will always remember the "Jordi test" to determine the body your red wines! Thank you for the great tour. Anyone looking to see gorgeous Mont Serrat and take in delicious wine and food at a 1000 year old winery, look no further!

Wanted a day trip from Barcelona and so glad we chose this! The monastery at the side of a serrated mountain (Montserrat) is unlike anything we've seen. It's in a beautiful location about an hour bus ride from Barcelona and the views are stunning!

May have been able to do without the winery tour, but still a nice chance to see a winery being run by the 36th generation of a family. Tried delicious wines and tapas so it was definitely worthwhile. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Would definitely recommend this tour when visiting Barcelona!
