This exclusive and fully-customizable wine tour is only available during the harvest & "human towers" season that runs from mid-August through September.

Much as wine making, "human towers" are an ancient tradition of the people from the Penedes region. Both reach their peak during the harvest season (August & September), when the most important popular celebrations take place and the human towers are built.

Join us on this unforgettable wine tour to discover Penedes during this special time of the year. 

As part of this unique wine and culture experience, you will visit one of the most advanced wineries in the region: you will walk through its vineyards, enter the cellars where bottles of wine and cava age, and experiment a world of sensations while pairing cheese and wine. 

After the tastings, choose one (or more) of the nearby towns (Vilafranca, Tarragona, Valls) to take part in a popular "human towers" celebration in the central square of the village: surrounded by locals and visitors alike, join in the festivities for a memorable day. Get ready to feel the thrill of these incredible "structures": strength, balance, courage and common sense combined for a wonderful spectacle. A truly stunning example of team work in the heart of cava country.
