THE WINE & CHEESE TRAIN
Visiting a Cheese Affineur by Train
Join us for a half day trip to Vilafranca del Penedès to visit the only affineur in Catalunya.
After a brief Cheese Production class, we visit the caves where their spanish and international cheeses are cured to the perfect point of consumption.
We then finish with a paired tasting of their 15 greatest cheeses and a selection of 5 different wines, picked by the VIVINOS sommeliers especially, to complete this great experience!
Rough idea of the itinerary looks like:
We'll meet at Plaza Catalunya to take the train (the return ticket costs 10€ and it is not included in the price) to Vilafranca at 10:50.
We arrive in Vilafranca at 12:15, where we'll walk 5 minutes to the Warehouse starting with the Cheese Production class (15/20 minutes)
We tour the premises (15/20 min).
We finish with a Wine & Cheese tasting, ending around 14:30/15:00.
You can decide to stay and check out the town, or head back on the train - the way back is your choice - you are free to roam!
There will be an option to visit the affineur shop to purchase some of the cheeses we try! Or similarly head back to the shop in Barcelona to purchase any of the wines we enjoyed too!
