Winery visit – Awaken your senses

We are all aware that Barcelona is the place to be, the place that all tourists and business groups want to visit and discover. However, Barcelona’s surroundings are as beautiful as Catalonia’s capital and definitely more calm and quiet.

That is the reason why sometimes we like to suggest an alternative to Barcelona when clients ask for a leisure activity for their groups while they attend congresses, conventions or incentive trips in the city.

Let us tell you a bit more about one of those alternatives; we call it “Awaken your senses”.

This is a half-day activity in the Bages region, around one hour driving distance from Barcelona. We will visit a winery that has more than 9 centuries of history and a long tradition in wine growing. Once we arrive to the winery we will start with a nice breakfast buffet that includes coffee/tea, juices, cupcakes, cookies and all sorts of cakes made by a local creative bakery.

Half an hour later, a guide from the winery will take us on a tour to visit the facilities, which includes the old cellar of the house (XII). The old cellar is of the gems of the wine culture and history of this area and it has been preserved in its original state. We will also visit the museum of industry and transport: private collection of the family engaged in transportation vehicles, trucks and antique tools that the family used for winemaking.

The next stop will be the modern cellar and the barrels room. In this last room we will take a break for a relaxing yoga session in a unique and charming place. After stretching our body and connect with ourselves, we will take a walk to the vineyards so we can approach history of viticulture in bages and enjoy the landscape.

At the end of the walk, the visit culminates with a wine and olive oil tasting in a lovely setting surrounded by vineyards. We will taste white and red wines as well as high quality olive oil produced by the same winery.

It is now time to have an appetizer back in the winery followed by a tasty lunch in one the winery’s rooms. We will of course enjoy our meal with the local wines.

A bottle of wine as a gift for all our guests will be the end of this experience before we go back to Barcelona with all our senses completely awaken.

This activity will allow your clients to disconnect from city stress and noise, recharge their batteries and be ready for any new business challenge coming.

Conde de Godó – Barcelona Sailing Trophy

Sa Cuina de N´AinaReal Club Náutico in Barcelona recently launched the 40th edition of the Conde de Godó Sailing Trophy. The action on the water was performed by the professional sailing classes, like the Wally, TP52s and Soto 40s. The battle was promised to be intense, and so it was; there were 65 boats in three different race courses, the best of international sailing together with more amateur units, fighting for the Conde de Godo Sailing Trophy.

Joaquím Barenys, Director of the 40th Conde de Godó Trophy praised the competition: “The Conde de Godó Trophy is in excellent health with an international fleet of both professionals and amateurs, and it has continued to build over the years. … The participation of some of the great legends of international sailing in the competition is the best birthday present that we could possibly have for the 40th edition of the Conde de Godó Trophy.

The Conde de Godó Sailing Trophy kicked off on the 22nd of May with excellent sailing conditions on the water in Barcelona. After the harsh conditions the fleet had on Friday, the races scheduled for Saturday had to wait longer than expected due to the light wind that was blowing in Barcelona during the morning.

The last day of the Conde de Godo Sailing Trophy was full of anxiety. The prevailing light wind indicated the worst but finally the fleet was able to race in appropriate conditions. The 40th Conde de Godo Sailing Trophy ended on 26th of May and got its winners: QUANTUM RACING (TP52), EARLY BIRD (Soto 40), ZHIK/NOVASAIL (J-80), OPEN SEASON (Wally), XSPAIN (ORC 2) FANYTAS (ORC 3) and RATS ON FIRE (ORC 1).

For those who want to feel this sensation from a little closer perspective, we can organize a sailing regatta for corporate groups. Contact us to and we’ll make you feel like one of the Conde do Godo Sailing Trophy participants even if just for a day!
