Full day tour specially created for wine lovers in a luxury saloon bus!
First stop will be at one of the most prestigious “boutique” cellars of cava, Llopart. During the Tour you will have the opportunity to explore the private country house of the Llopart family inherited by Bernardus Leopardy in the XIV Century. Over the centuries, the small cellar in the house basement was converted into the place where, in 1887, the first bottle of Llopart cava was produced. In this charming old winery you will experience a trip to the past with the tasting of our most emblematic and exclusive cava: Original Gran Reserva 1887.
Some local snacks will also be served including bread topped with tomatoes, cold meats and cheese. The experience will continue by visiting one of our oldest vineyards: “La vinya del Paulino” with vines that are more than 75 years old. The tour continues to the current facilities where all products of Llopart´s range of cavas are produced. Once we get to our ExVite tasting room, you will have the chance to enjoy three more tastings of different kinds of our Gran Reserva cavas. After this authentic and fascinating experience we will take you to the spectacular main Torres’s Wine Cellars for living a unique and exclusive experience. The visit will start with the history of the Torres family, continuing with the life cycle of the wine plant during multimedia presentation.
