What you'll do

Undock from the bustle and heat of Barcelona's streets, and cruise serenely along the beautiful coastline to the charming, winemaking landscape of Alella, avoiding the crowds whilst visiting one of the most iconic wine-growing regions on earth.

Picking you up from near the Barcelona marina, we’ll embark on an exclusive sailing experience aboard a luxury sailboat, heading for one of the oldest wine regions in Spain, to visit a family-run winery for a supreme wine tasting experience.

As we travel along the coast, you’ll soak in the views of the Barcelona skyline, experiencing these famous landmarks in a totally unique way.

After a truly relaxing sailing experience, we’ll arrive at Alella harbour and a private transfer will take you through the picturesque countryside to a centuries-old winery.

Here, expert sommeliers will welcome you to this authentic, family-run winery and show you around this beautiful 14th-century farmhouse, nestled in between rolling hills of vineyards and the sapphire-blue Mediterranean sea.

Stroll lazily through these beautiful, sun-dappled vineyards that have been growing for over 25 years, through the practice of both organic and modern techniques.

The wines of Alella have a long and significant history in the region, and in the history of wine in Catalonia. In the Middle Ages, Alella was responsible for the production of the best quality wines exported from Catalonia throughout the world, especially to overseas colonies with large populations of Catalans.

After a relaxing morning of sailing and tasting wines, you will be taken back to Barcelona by a private bus.

Your tour will start at 10:00am and last until 15:00pm.

At the end of your tour you will return to the initial start location.

To see Barcelona from another point of view in the sailing to Alella was my favorite part. Nevertheless, the vineyards and the winery was the perfect closure to the experience. I recommend this tour!

The day was amazing, very sunny! We took the boat and sailed to Alella. When we arrived, we were guided around the vinyards and got to know more about the history of the place and the winery. In the end we tasted delicious white and red wines. Super recommended!
