Penedès is a special place, a plain set between mountains. A place with a very diverse landscape. It’s full of vineyards and scattered with wine cellars, small villages and towns. It is a land that is touched by the Mediterranean Sea and famous around the world for the quality of its wines. The old Via Augusta passed through here and the Penedès boasts a history that is thousands of years old and that is directly linked to the Romans and Ibers. It is a corner of Catalunya that has been able to successfully maintain its own strong personality, linked to the culture of wine and cava, and its capital is Vilafranca del Penedès.
