This Tour is part of a fantastic 'package'. By this I mean the tour heads for Montserrat and then here, and all hosted by Castleexperience wine tours. There is a seperate site for commentating on Castle Experience, and I have commented on that site.

However, this Winery is also very interesting, but ( for me ) it was our Host Marta and Her Tour Company that only enhanced everything great about this. The heat was incredible outside, yet in the cellars it was reasonably cool. And we also had a 3 course snack, all complimenting the wines we tasted. All told, the tour lasted about 90 minutes, and it was very interesting.

Highly recommended!

We took a tour from Barcelona up to Montserrat and later to this vineyard to have tapas and wine tasting.
It was a beautiful site overlooking the vineyard and we got to go up the tower to see the landscape from a different perspective. It looks truly amazing with the saw-like Montserrat in the background.
The wines that are produced here are delicious (red, rosé and white), so if your path crosses by here, try to find a tour that will tell you more about the wines and the vineyard.

We stopped here on our Montserrat tour through Castlexperience. The wine was excellent, and so was the food. We purchased two bottles of white wine because it was a great value. The centuries-old castle was fun to explore.

Scenic trip with the mountains of Montserrat in the background. Interesting to be taken inside to hear about the wine is made, and then to taste and eat with basic tapas.

We visited the Oller del Mas Winery as a half-day tour after visiting Montserrat. We were fortunate to enjoy a stunning crisp Spring day and had an extremely relaxing and enjoyable time there. We are not knowledgeable wine aficionados nor connoisseurs and perhaps this trip was more suited to someone like us. It's a small boutique Winery producing organic wines. We were given 3 wines to taste of varying vintage and complexity and two of them seemed fairly new with just one pressing , one tasting rather like juice! There were cheeses to go with it and we were enlightened on wine in general. I'm not sure however, whether serious wine drinkers would've enjoyed what seemed a rather lighthearted tasting. Our guide was the same one who'd taken us to Montserrat and not someone from the winery. He was a knowledgeable and very likeable young man but it was as though the Winery owners don't really have much input into the tour as the same guide told us about the vineyard as well as the production process. He also sold us the wine afterwards! But this aside, we had a lovely afternoon starting with an alfresco lunch outside their restaurant. The sun got too hot outdoors and some shade would've been very welcome. The food was good though rationed as was the wine ( though you could purchase more quite cheaply if one wanted).After lunch everybody lolled around on the lawn furniture pleasantly drowsy. Then a walk along the vineyard with a stop at the large shed housing all the equipment where the process was explained to us. We then were shown around the castle itself ( the title and land were gifted for services rendered to the king) which is a beautiful old building made of lovely stone. Some steep stairs later, we enjoyed a wine & cheese tasting session and then had some free time to buy the wines, visit the roof or potter around taking pictures. It was unhurried and relaxing and when we finally left for Barcelona, every single person fell into a very satisfying sleep on the bus! Combined with Montserrat, this was a perfect way to spend the second half of the day!
