This break is ideal for the spring or summer, so we thought it would be a good idea to do a morning activity that takes you somewhere with cooler climes. After looking at various options, we found the Finca Mas Macià in Òdena, a winery belonging to the Bohigas family, with subterranean cava cellars dating back as far as 1542.
The winery produces both wines and cavas as well as offering guided tours, where they explain, for example, that they started to produce cava in the mid-20th century and that the winery was renovated to improve productivity and the quality of the products. They currently produce around 560,000 bottles of cava and 90,000 bottles of wine each year, practically all of which are destined for foreign markets. There is a pretty manor house, a typical Catalan 'masia', classified as being of historical and artistic interest. And, of course, the visit ends with a tasting of their wines or cavas.
