The Montserrat mountains and monastery, delicious tapas and Catalan wines; experience all three on this wine and tapas day trip to Montserrat.
Montserrat Wine and Tapas Day Trip
The tour will start from Plaza Catalunya, in the centre of Barcelona at 8:45 am. From here we'll take an hour-long journey to the Montserrat mountain range, during which our expert guide will give you interesting information about the history of Barcelona and Catalan culture.
When we get to Montserrat, we'll have a guided tour of the most important elements of the monastery hearing the stories and legends of the 'La Moreneta' black Madonna that the monks have guarded in their temple for centuries. You'll also have some free time to explore the local farmer's market and take in the breathtaking mountain views.
We'll then head to our next stop: the Oller del Mas winery. Located in a restored 10th-century castle, this winery has been owned by the same family for thirty-six generations. Here you'll be able to see the age-old winemaking traditions and our guide will explain all about the process.
No trip to a winery is complete without a wine tasting, and that's exactly what we'll do next. You'll have the chance to try three wines from D.O. Pla de Bages (the wine region at the foot of the Montserrat mountain range), and they'll be accompanied by a selection of traditional, homemade tapas.
After eating and drinking some of the finest local delicacies, we'll head back to Barcelona where you'll be dropped off in the centre at approximately 3:30 pm.
- We suggest wearing comfortable shoes and clothing as some walking is involved. We also recommend that you check the weather forecast as the weather in Montserrat is normally more extreme than in Barcelona.

- Please note that no alcohol will be served to under 18s.
- All allergies and dietary conditions can be catered for, but please inform us when booking.
- Children under the age of 3 may join the tour free of charge, but no car seats or meals are provided.
- There is not enough time on this tour to visit the Museum of Montserrat, touch the black Madonna or ride the funicular railway. If you're interested in having more time in Montserrat, check out our half-day trip or you can see more of the natural surroundings on our horse riding tour.
- Each day we work with different, low-production, family-owned boutique wineries. Due to logistic reasons, on the day of your tour, you might visit another cellar instead of Oller del Mas.
