The Grape Escape
Spanish Vineyard Hen Weekend
- Vineyard tour
- Lunch and wine tasting
- Local traditional dinner
- Swimming pool
If the bride-to-be is looking for a tranquil setting to escape the hassle of wedding planning and enjoy a little R n R then you'll be hard pushed to find a more idyllic location than this beautifully picturesque vineyard, nestled in the Catalonia countryside.
Perfect for any hens who are partial to the occasional glass or two, you can see the whole process from vine to bottle and sample wine and cava produced on site before cooling off in the pool or exploring the countryside.
The peaceful setting really is the perfect antidote after weeks of often stressful wedding planning while nearby Barcelona offers a great alternative if the hens are in need of a big night out or some retail therapy.
Any hens who enjoy a little glass at the end of a hard day will be in hen party heaven as they're surrounded by the spectacular vineyards which grow 15 different varieties of grapes including; Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanco, Incrozzio Manzoni and more.
During your stay you can enjoy a tour of the extensive vineyards, winery and farmhouse. The winery proudly doesn't use chemicals in creating its 100% natural red, white and rose wines that you'll be invited to sample as well as local delicacies. The tour also includes authentic local lunch which foodies will absolutely love.
If you're feeling energetic you can take the tour by bike (but don't worry if you're not, they are electric bikes). Alternatively you can opt for Segways which are brilliant fun to drive. Or you can do things a little more traditionally with more regular modes of transport.
Whatever you choose, this fascinating and wonderfully tasteful tour really shouldn't be missed.

You'll enjoy an evening at a local restaurant as part of your weekend, this is certainly not your average spot for tourists and will give you a real taste of Catalonia, something the foodies among you will absolutely love.
You might prefer your own private al fresco dining making use of the fincas kitchens, BBQs and the courtyard, allowing you to cook up your own feast and raise a few glasses to the nearly-wed.
But if your feet are itching to hit the dancefloor we'll arrange transport and guest list entry to one of the hottest clubs in Barcelona as well as a number of fantastic and lively bars. But if you're sticking with your Spanish theme you can be living la vida loca at a Salsa or flamenco club. Bravo!
