Wine tour
sep 2018 • Páry
Bad service!!! Beautiful place but when coming all this way to do a wine tasting and only offered one. What a waste of time! Don’t bother coming here. Our guide was surprised as well and covered for them saying it is this time of year we only serve 1 small tasting. We understood her speaking in Spanish and she said our group was too large. Should have offered us at least 2 choices as to which wine we would try. We are here to taste your wine and learn a little bit about your processThat is why we came!!!

Winery tastings
sep 2018 • Priatelia
Amazing vineyard with outstanding wines and service. A must see if visiting Montserrat. Has tours and tastings with a video of the history of founder Jean Leon. Reservations are recommended but can be arranged on short notice if you skip the tour. Views are great and wines range from 11€ to 39€, a great selection of Bordeaux wines in Spain 🍷

Educational Trip!
aug 2018 • Priatelia
I especially liked the row of vines of different grape varieties that was clearly labelled at the beginning of each row. As it was the harvesting season, we also get to eat the grapes!! They are different based on the ripeness, skin colour and thickness, sweetness, fragrance, leaves and bunches. The history of this vineyard was narrated very well by the guide.

Great winery with an interesting story
máj 2018 • Páry
A rare Catalan wine maker in the Penedès region that is NOT a Cava house. Started in 1963 by the entrepreneur Jean Leon (not his real name), this winery has an interesting Hollywood back story of an immigrant who left Europe to seek his fortune in America first in NY then later California. Like many of the wineries in California today, this one revels in celebrating their story and your tour starts with a slick 10-minute bio-pic about the scrappy founder and his connections to some of the Hollywood elite from the 1950's like Frank Sinatra. He later went on to create the legendary Hollywood restaurant La Scala and created the winery to supply the restaurant. You can learn the rest of the story when you visit. Despite the somewhat overdone homage, the wines were surprisingly good. We tasted three - a Chardonnay, Gigi, produced for the restaurant that was light and without the heavy buttery flavors of California, a 100% merlot that was rich and velvety and a Cabernet blend with big bold aromas and very low tannins. All were excellent. It is a pity they don't ship to America although they do have a distributor so it might be possible to find them on the coasts. Recommended

Wine Tasting in the Cava Region
jún 2017 • Páry
My husband and I rented a car from Barcelona and traveled to three wineries before ending up in Stiges, Spain. Lovely ride and beautiful day for wine. This place was less traditional than the other two and had a very cool vibe. Their rose was fantastic and we had a bottle, overlooking their pristine vineyard from their air conditioned tasting room while enjoying a charcuterie plate of cheeses. I would recommend it here.

Fascinating story
apr 2017 • Páry
This visit was chosen quite at random and we were very glad we did it. The location (about 45 minutes from Barcelona) is beautiful, and the wines were very good. The guide at the winery was very nice and knowledgeable. The visit starts with a short video about the founder, and it is a remarkable story... leading to this vineyard's wine being served at Ronald Reagan's inauguration. Not bad for a vineyard started from scratch in 1963 (after he bought the land, he ripped out all the old vines and planted new ones). The visit ends with a tasting of three wines, all very palatable!

Lovely place, great life story and good wine
apr 2017 • Páry
We chose to visit Jean Leon's vineyard and we had such a great time. The hostess was friendly and knowledgeable, the story of Jean Leon's life is very interesting, the surroundings are lovely and the wine quite pleasant. If you want to spend time away from rhe city, this is a good option. September would probably be even more fun because you can try not only the wines but the different grapes!
