歐洲自由行│巴塞隆納自助行程│帶家人一起去逛酒莊、品美酒(2019更新 update)│Europe Travel│Backpacking in Barcelona│CAVA Winery day tour

2018四月歐洲自由行,這趟是帶家人一起去,正苦惱著巴賽隆納自助的行程安排,剛好看到airbnb上有酒莊行程體驗,於是在巴塞隆納自助的第二天參加了從「airbnb 體驗」訂的一日葡萄酒莊行程,地點在巴塞隆納往西邊車程約40分鐘的Penedés。一天走訪了兩個酒莊,地下20公尺的酒窖藏了上萬瓶等待羽化的酒香,藍天白雲與涼風徐徐之下,六個小時、八款當地釀製的cava和葡萄酒讓大夥兒品嚐。

In April 2018, on the second day of our family trip, the 6-hour winery day tour booked from airbnb Experiences is definitely worth a visit. 40 mins minivan ride in a sunny, breezy day, tasting 8 kinds of cava/wine from 2 wineries; hundreds of thousands of bottles quietly sleeping in the cellars, awaiting their moment to be ripe.

2018April_vineyard_ride已經想不起來上一次這麼認真查歐洲自由行的行程是什麼時候了,因為自己旅行久了,最初的儀式感、慎重感就少了;那這次為什麼這麼認真準備巴賽隆納自助的行程呢?沒什麼,一心就是想讓家人在旅程中體驗風土民情、讚嘆生活、享受自然、以及和別人分享時會滿臉笑容光彩(白話是:要讓我弟弟妹妹有很厲害的酒莊行程照片可打卡、上傳IG…姐姐為了拉近距離也是用心良苦呀)。

這天一早在巴塞隆納市區的斜角巷集合點名,等待賓士minivan來的時間,和同團的美國人們、華裔美國人、加拿大父子檔、自己來巴賽隆納自助的背包客台灣女子等,彼此打招呼聊聊,發現自己來巴賽隆納自助的人其實也不少,也沒想到酒莊行程是一個熱門的選項 (其他天都滿了訂不到)。

With the passion to wow my siblings, I check so many travel info and truly hope they will like their first trip to Europe. The winery trip with good reviews really catches my eyes and seems trust-worthy; the booking was made after I watched the intro video and after checking the weather forecast.

On our second day in Barcelona, we went to gathering point to take the minivan, greeting 9 new friends from USA, Canada, Taiwan while waiting for the car, and finding out actually solo travel is quite common.

賓士的Minivan載我們12個人往位在巴賽隆那西邊的Penedés山區開去,從車水馬龍之處開到蜿蜒山景,約40-45分鐘的車程,弟弟睡死,髮蠟還在窗上留下印子,妹妹眼睛很忙,酒莊行程讓她興奮的微笑掛滿整路。

第一間酒莊行程是:女主人在迎賓廳優雅地問候大家,簡單介紹三代傳承的歷史後,把大夥交給導覽小姐帶往地下三層的酒窖去。葡萄從採收到裝瓶,接著送到這裡,存放等著微生物作用發酵,每隔一段時間還需用人工一瓶一瓶翻轉到特定角度,她細心解釋,西班牙腔的英文在濕涼的地窖裡不斷迴聲。

The ride is about 40 mins west from Barcelona, the landscape changed as heading further west.  The beautiful hill view alongside leads you to the vineyards, my sister kept her smile out of excitement while my brother fell asleep all the way.

The owner’s wife of first winery awaited the group at the hall, elegantly greeted us and introduced the historical lands and cava industry briefly. Leading by another lady, she gave a comprehensive explanation from grapes harvesting to wine making. A good story teller as her, a vivid image depicted of how each bottle of wine is taken care of with dedications in this deep 3-leveled cellar.

酒窖沿路講解結束後,灑滿光線的長廊盡頭有一間鋪滿深藍色天鵝絨的房間在等我們,裡面四張高腳桌,把大家分為四組,一人四個杯子。四種白酒、紅酒、粉紅酒、cava輪番獻上,酒莊在每桌依序送上佐酒的鹹餅乾、salami、起士、油漬橄欖,我不是品酒專家,但每組酒與小食,我都虔誠地品嘗嘴裡的芬芳。

然後轉頭發現我妹已微醺,弟弟忙著上傳IG(儘管傳、不用謝我 XD)。一邊聽新朋友分享非洲出差經驗,一邊笑著享受眼前的一切。

After walking back from the cellar, a room decorated with dark blue velvet waited us at the end of the hallway, 4 bar tables inside, 4 wine glasses for each person, complementary snacks (salami, cheese, olives, salted crackers) to go with wine and cava are also provided accordingly to amaze each one’s palate.

接著,西班牙帥司機小哥出現,運送開心的大家到行程中的第二處酒莊。

酒莊的女主人們,優雅是共通的氣質,第二間酒莊行程的時間安排一樣是簡單介紹約5-10分鐘,提到這區的氣候變遷導致減產、酒莊經營需要增產、土壤灌溉特別的農法等等,我們腦中帶著粗略的概念,分別上了兩台4×4骨董吉普車,吉普車就載著大家在滿是初春幼枝的葡萄園中兜風。

接著是參觀相對現代化的釀酒製程和器皿工具,儲藏空間內有大量依年份擺放的大木桶,然後又乘著吉普車,吹著暖陽下的涼風,回到主屋旁的品酒小屋。

The second winery is about 15-min drive away.  Elegance is the basic trait for winery owners, a charming Spanish lady briefly explained the impact of climate change in growing market demands and so on. With a general concept of cava, two vintage 4×4 took everyone for a ride in the early spring vineyard in a sunny, breezy day.

第二間酒莊安排了三張高腳桌,桌子少、同桌人就多,互動一多、品酒的過程也更多歡樂! 一樣一人四個杯子、四款酒,但已有先前佳釀的加持,大夥顯得放鬆許多,一樣都是來巴賽隆納自助的我們,因為行程安排讓我們有很多共通的話題可聊,縮短了一開始冷淡的陌生距離;搭配著小食,屋內氣氛越來越熱絡,開始跟別桌的夥伴也滿滿互動,原本獨自一人、非常害羞美國男孩,也跟加拿大爸爸聊開了。

看著落地窗外的陽光灑滿草地,充滿清新果香的cava(西班牙香檳)搭配小食,提起的果酸讓酒香變得更驚艷。每個人的舌頭都有自己愛的滋味,每位姊姊都有她愛的弟妹(嗯?)。因為其中一支真的太想跟家人分享,所以忍「重」在那買了三瓶帶回台灣孝敬爸媽。我覺得這也不錯,讓他們可以一邊喝,一邊聽你說在巴賽隆納自助的故事。

The second round wine tasting would be much more fun since people are more open up and start to mingle around after some wine. Even the American solo-traveler who was shy earlier also started to share his trip with another Canadian dad.

With the company of family, new friends, fresh and aromatic cava, beautiful natures, we enjoyed the atmosphere a lot and made this our shared memories.  This winery day tour is definitely worth a visit.

airbnb酒莊行程推薦程度:  推,非持推薦,真心喜歡,也機會還想再去一次。
說嘴指數: 10分滿分。

弟弟撩妹範例: 「我跟你說,這次我去西班牙的巴賽隆納自助旅行,行程安排也是自己排的,有一天我們坐吉普車去酒莊,下次我帶你去…..」(姊姊無限腦補)

Highly recommended. Totally Instagrammable. Pick-up line sample for my brother: Last time I backpacked in Spain and visited vineyards, let’s go together next time……
