Splendid recognition of the excellent quality to one of the best producers in the Conca de Barbera:

Gastronomic tourism is one of the activities that are gaining more strength in recent years. Although in Catalunya, and in Conca de Barberà, in particular, it has been a long time to enjoy an experience full of nuances. In fact, it is one of the region’s main attractions, offering travelers the opportunity to sample the produce of the land. Products that taste traditional, such as wines and cavas, cheeses and typical elaborations that delight the palate of everything that tastes them.

Routes through the DO Conca de Barberà
The Conca de Barberà wine tradition has its own identity. What has made him gain the prestige of having a Designation of Origin and wines with personality. The wine tourism routes cover some of the most traditional, but at the same time, modern farms in the area. Families dedicated to wine for generations, combining old-fashioned and avant-garde techniques. The winery Jordi Llorens, in the municipality of Blancafort, invites tourists to stroll among the vineyards, taste some of the products and buy directly all year. In Barberà de la Conca we can visit the facilities of Carlania, which is committed to biodynamic agriculture, based on respect for the land and the life it generates. The wine tourism route involves visiting the vineyards, watching the animals that live there, tasting some of the wines that are produced with native grapes or staying all day visiting the area, first the winery and then the village of Barbera. The history of the Rendé Masdéu Winery goes back to at least the 17th century, as can be seen from different historical documents. Some of their organic wines have been awarded different prizes. Recognition of a life of effort to highlight the identity of the area. Talking about Catalan wines and not highlighting the cavas is impossible. La Conca also has a long tradition of making these sparkling wines, a hallmark of Catalonia. Wineries such as Castell de la Comanda, Carles Andreu and Mas Foraster are well worth the visit. Seeing the process of making and bottling, as well as the pairings, is a unique experience.
Cheese, an exceptional complement
If grapes and cheese are wonderful, tasting artisan cheeses and wines is a spectacle. The terrain of the Conca de Barberà terrain is perfect for raising herds of goats, with milk all kinds of cheeses are made, such as those of Sant Gil d’Albió, which uses modern techniques to obtain the best traditional flavor. These farms are an example of how gastronomic tourism is energizing the area, giving travelers a unique year-round experience. In an unmatched environment that invites you to rest and lose.
Restaurants and typical dishes
To speak of Conca de Barberà is to talk about a gastronomy with its own identity, as well as the products from which it is nourished. It is best to enjoy the recipes made with seasonal products. Some of the events have become a must-see for those who want to know the region, such as the calçotades in one of the restaurants in Montblanc and surroundings during the first months of the year or sit at a table in Santa Coloma de Queralt. Some of these dining establishments are among the highest rated by diners. An experience for the eyes and the palate, because they offer the opportunity to enjoy the best of traditional Catalan cuisine in an environment full of history. Reasons why the weather seems to have stopped and you should enjoy it without haste. Check out our selection of Catalan gastronomic restaurants.
La Conca, an exceptional environment full of flavor
In addition to the wine tourism routes and the pairings, in Conca de Barberà a whole universe of flavors and products is masterfully concentrated. We could highlight the autumn in Vilanova de Prades to know the chestnut, a food that surprises by its apparent simplicity and its versatility in the kitchen. In July we can approach Santa Coloma de Queralt to see how the Romesco is made, a fish-based dish that has its own festival every year, on the third Saturday. And we cannot fail to mention sausages, garlic, saffron and countless gastronomic jewels that are appreciated all over the world for their quality.
A self-identity driven by wine
There is no doubt that wine tourism is one of the gastronomic activities par excellence in Catalonia. Not in vain is the region with the largest number of Designations of Origin, in which the Basin occupies a privileged place. If you want to squeeze the maximum of the possibilities of the gastronomic tourism, there is no doubt that here you can do it to the full.
