‘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.

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 is not a common winery – its superb ecological wines have earned plenty of awards in the recent years. In fact, one of its wines won the “Best Wine in Catalonia” award in 2018. But the cellar is not only special for its wines. You will take a stroll by the vineyards, learn how the wine is made, and discover all of its secrets.

*We work daily with different low-production, family-owned boutique wineries. Due to logistic reasons, you might visit another cellar instead of Oller del Mas.

We went on vacation to Europe for two weeks. We went on ten tours in three different countries and this tour was our favorite. Max is the best tour guide ever! He is very knowledgeable and engaging. You can tell he loves his job. Monserrat was Beautiful! The winery and the tapas were a perfect way to end our tour and our vacation.

Jordi was our guide and he did not disappoint our expectations on what to expect on our trip. He was entertaining and informative. We plan to return and stay overnight. Well worth the price. The lunch was delicious and did I mention the wine tasting-very fine. We learned a lot about wines from Jordi. Gracias

We had a great day on Montserrat. Our guide Max was warm and knowledgeable, and gave a in-depth and interesting narration of our whole journey. We had the lunch option, which was a delicious one at the vineyard, before proceeding to an interesting tasting of the local wines.
