A different kind of brunch among vineyards
To disconnect at the weekend, to switch the city for nature, to do something different. We suggest having brunch at a rural cottage where the Xarel·lo and Macabeo vineyards will surprise you while sampling the best local gastronomy.
The Can Parellada estate is located in Subirats, near Barcelona. The 13 hectares full of greenery and nature are some 250 metres above sea level. It’s the perfect place for wine tourism routes.

Try D.O. Pla de Bages at the foot of the vat
Sampling a quality wine has to be more than just drinking with friends; it has to be an experience.

Feel nature in a Mehari
Wine routes can be done in many ways: on bike, walking and even in a classic Mehari. We suggest you spend a different kind of day in a very special car and have all sorts of adventures while learning more about the world of wine and cava.
It’s a fun trip for the whole family during which you’ll discover the hundred-year-old vineyards that produce the best local wines, the authentic D.O. Penedès.
This is one of the most special wine routes as you not only get to learn how to drive a Mehari but you’ll also get to know small nearly-deserted villages and arrive quite hungry for a picnic featuring Catalan products, which will awaken all five of your senses.
Catalonia is known for its gastronomy, landscapes and, of course, its wines. Some of the most outstanding are D.O. Penedès, D.O. Pla de Bages and D.O. Priorat. What are you waiting for to taste them all?
