“Not to be missed! A wine tour with a difference.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

If you are in the Barcelona or Penedes region then you must put this on your 'to do' list. Paddy is a superb host who knows the area, the wineries and the wines. We cycled through the area with Paddy's guidance and had an unforgettable day. Paddy really looked after us and ensured we got the most from our day. Highly recommended!

“Lovely day cycling through vineyards and olive groves, interesting winery tour and yummy good value lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We had a really enjoyable and fun day cycling at our own pace along the back roads of Penedes. Paddy set us up so we could do our own thing but gave us lots of tips and recommendations to guide us. I'd highly recommend this tour for a taste of this very pretty, relaxed and friendly area. thanks Paddy!!

“A Cava experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

This was an excellent wine/cava tour and must do if you are in the region! Paddy is a great guide (and storyteller!).

The wineries visited are good (with defintely a standout few) and cycling is not too demanding. There is even a cheeky visit to a small olive oil factory to see an old stone press.

Overall I would highly recommended! Even a lost watch was found and sent back to the UK by Paddy.

Thanks Paddy!!!

“Get to know Penedès wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have more than a passing interest in wine, and I love getting to know as much about an area and its wines anywhere I go. Long time resident, wine fiend and expert host Paddy of El Moli was the perfect choice for our introduction to the Penedès region and its wines.

We picked up the rodalies commuter train from Catalunya station in Barcelona, and by 10am we were in Vilafranca ready for the tour. We made it a challenge as we visited during the hottest August in decades; after picking up a Spanish usim for my iPad, Paddy chose four fine, contrasting wineries for sampling and a thoroughly satisfying locale for lunch; Paddy seemed to be able to supply us with as much or as little info as we were up for, whether on the wines or on local and regional history and culture. We ended the day with a stop to pick up some of those marvelously addictive roasted almond catànies they make in Vilafranca.

Thanks for the great day, Paddy—and keep up the good work!

“The best way to go for Wine Tasting in Catalunya!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

It is like having a friend or a relative take you through the Penedes into a one of a kind wine tasting experience!!! He is well regarded by the locals and knows the password into each of the cellars in the region. He is very relaxed and will mold to your best interest. The lunch was spectacular! He is very flexible and allows you to choose the food of your choice which was very nice!! He is all that Paris-Wine-Day-Tours which they would ever be!!!
