Wine and cava trail & Festival Human towers experience.

Leaving Barcelona behind you, travel in a luxury mini-coach with full air conditioning to the wine-growing region of Spain, El Penedès, home to several prestigious vineyards -known locally as “cellers”. Learn all about Cava, a high-quality sparkling wine, as you visit a family owned winery in Spain. Learn how the famous wine and cava (local champagne) are produced, from the first pressing of the grapes to the fermentation in the cellars. After touring the vineyards and cellars, take part in a cava-tasting session, savouring the exquisite notes of the local champagne. You will see exactly why Catalan wine and cava have acquired such international fame.

Continue the tour to experience a local festival. Spain, and specially Catalunya, is the land of traditions. In every single city, town and village there is a festival of some kind which gets all the townsfolk out in the street to celebrate. The most popular element in a city festival is ‘Castellers” or Human Tower Builders, who build up their best human towers in this special celebrations. This is an opportunity for the community to gather, to participate and to celebrate a shared heritage. Castells (or human  towers) have existed for over two hundred years and today it is still the liveliest popular expression of Catalan culture. This is a unique practice in the world and UNESCO has declared it Intangible World Heritage. Human towers can be up to 10-people high. Hundreds of Catalans of all ages take part, from 60-year-old veterans that help to form “la pinya” (the solid base of the tower), to the brave “anxaneta” (a child of no more than six years old) who crowns the tower. Learn how important is courage, teamwork, spirit of improvement, self-esteem and teammates confidence in this traditional activity.

Later on, you can have a go yourself! Entirely optional, the instructor will help you to form part of la “pinya” – the solid human base of the tower.
