Wine tasting at Alella Wine-Farm with Picnic for Dinner
We were 5 Girls and we celebrated a Bachelorette-Weekend. It was a perfect surprise for the Bride.
Melanie picked us up directly in front of our Apartment at 6pm and she was so kind and drove us direct to the Alella Wine Farm.
There we had e private tour through the cellar and we tasted 5 different and very tasty wines. After that, the Family from that Winefarm prepared a Picnic in cute baskets and we walked through these Vineyards to the place where we had the dinner and we had a stunning overview all over the wine gardens and they decorated a beautiful table outside, it was such e perfect evening. Also the Picnic was delicious with small Tapas and of course a lot of Wine.
I can recommend that to everyone.
In that case, a big thank you to Melanie and the Family of the Wine-Farm.

As a thirtieth birthday present for my girlfriend i decided to book this experience as well as the catamaran with saxophonist on another night, from the minute i expressed interest Melanie guided me through all the options and suggested what she though was most suited to the occasion and she couldn’t have chosen better. After requesting that it could all be kept secret in advance we were picked up from the hotel and transported to the most amazing and beautiful site in the hills overlooking the sea. Melanie introduced us to the vineyard owner and translated anything complex as we went along, the tour of the winery was incredible and all our questions (loads!) were answered and processes explained. Upon finishing the tour my girlfriend was presented with a map indicating where we were to find our picnic setup within the vineyard and it was out of this world! We were left to enjoy the wine and food (some homemade) prepared for us in the most incredible candlelit setting amongst the grape vines whilst enjoying amazing views, sunset and eventually moonlight! Once ready we were able to decide when we left by messaging Melanie (of course after buying a bottle to take away) We literally could not have asked for more and would strongly recommend this to any couples looking for a memorable experience. Since coming home i have even received recipes i discussed from Melanie for traditional Spanish dishes which we intend on making and reliving the memory at home. The only issue was i now eventually have to come up with something as good to propose! Thank you Melanie for the amazing memories and we will maybe see you again in the future!

Melanie with Barcelona Discovery took us to a beautiful winery outside of Barcelona. After a wine
tasting and tour of the facilities we were given a picnic basket and map that led to a private table set up
in the middle of the vineyard. It was a highlight of our trip!

I did the tour to the Alella winery with the picnic at sunshine. Melanie brought us by car to the winery, she was very professional and everything was perfect and very well organized. The winery is in a fantastic place on the hill near to Barcelona and facing the sea. The landlord showed us the winery and explained the production process; we also tasted several wines, all very good! And then the picnic was prepared on a very nice viewpoint in the winery, with good Spanish food and a bottle of wine. It was really a unique experience and I was really happy with that! I definitely recommend it!!

I thoroughly enjoyed our winery visit and had a chance to spend considerable time with the owner. I too was a modest winemaker many years ago and we had a very informative discussion of today’s winemaking, particularly here in Spain. Your driver was excellent and only missed the pickup in Villasar del Mar because I had given you the incorrect house number. Thank you again for making it a most enjoyable day. Dr. Fred Blanchard
