Finca Viladellops: The Essence of a “Wine Village”
Finca Viladellops is not just a winery with tanks and barrels, it is an enclave in which its owner, Marcelo Desvalls, has made a strong commitment to wine tourism based on three main aspects: history, landscape and wine culture. It is a Mediterranean, sustainable and 100% ecological project (it has been organic since 2005).
This property with more than 1,000 years of history offers “Eno-cultural” experiences. Finca Viladellops, with 60 hectares of organic vineyards, is located in the heart of Penedés (Garraf), ten minutes by car from Sitges and forty from the centre of Barcelona. It offers a 360º experience, including visits, tastings, activities, gastronomy and accommodation.
The Finca Viladellops wine tourism offer
During the guided tour, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the history of Finca Viladellops, which dates back to 958, when the Order of the Knights Templar settled in Viladellops.
The property boasts a 13th century hermitage, an 11th century tower and a winery dating back to 1877, where wines have been produced for the last 25 years. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the winery, the vineyards and the “Desvalls Family Interpretation Centre“, where more than 4,000 parchments with more than 800 years of history can be found.
The guided tour ends with a premium wine tasting, allowing visitors to sample wines made from the region’s native grape varieties: Garnacha for the reds and Xarelo for the whites.
