The Penedès can offer good food for all tastes and all pocketbooks. At Albet i Noya we offer you tours combined with trips to restaurants in our town. Those who want a traditional menu should not miss Cal Xim (the best grill in the Penedès) and people who want a taster’s menu with haute cuisine dishes simply must try Cal Pere del Maset. If you’re looking for lunch in a vineyard with spectacular views of the mountains of Montserrat, the el Mirador de les Caves is the place for you.

Ir you are here during the summer, a visit to the Ordal Peach Market is indispensable
2. Sleeping in the vineyard
Since 2019, the county of the Penedès has had a network of 12 RV campgrounds that are totally equipped with picnic areas, water hook-up, and waste disposal. On the Turisme Penedès website you can find out about the RV areas promoted by the consortium and other private spaces with amazing views. The Penedès also has a complete offer of country estates with lodging that will make your experience unforgettable. If you want a quiet time, try some original options for glamping in the Penedès, such as sleeping in a vineyard hut or in a tent in the middle of the forest.
3. Find out about the history of wine in Catalonia
Did you know that people have been making wine in the Penedès for over 2700 years? A few kilometres from the winery, you will find the Font de la Canya Interpretation Centre, where you can discover the history of Catalan winemaking. The hundreds of burnt and fossilized grape seeds recovered in recent archaeological excavations represent the most important and the oldest finds related to winemaking documented to date in our country.
We also invite you to visit the Vinseum, Museum of Wine Cultures, located in Plaça de Santa Maria de Vilafranca del Penedès.
4. Doing sport in the vineyards
Whether on foot or by bicycle, in the Penedès we have many paths, routes, and activities for sports lovers. At Albet i Noya we have a route for hiking through the vineyards, such as the route to El Fanio on your own, or the route by electric bicycle that comes with a visit to the winery. On 19th August, we will also do a Nordic Walking excursion to see the Albet i Noya estates. It is a 10 km route to contemplate the sunset from one of the most beautiful spots in the Penedès.
