1. Bed & Breakfast - Wine and Cooking 

The first activity we suggest is a cooking class guided by B&B Wine and Cooking.

2. Water Interpretation Center 

The Water Interpretation Center of Torrelavit is a cultural and tourist center in the Penedès that wants to show the role of the river and water in the past, present and future of the territory. 

After a visit to our winery and learn about the estate, the history, the agriculture of our vineyards, and do a tasting led by our sommeliers, the next stop can be the water interpretation center of Torrelavit, where they will show you the close relationship between the river Riudebitlles with its tributaries, and the history and landscape of Torrelavit. In this space you can discover the importance that the river has had in the life of the people and the use it has made of water in the domestic sphere, thanks to the fountains and washing places; in irrigation, through wells, dams and canals, and in the industrial field, with the construction of twelve paper mills that from the s. XVII to the s. XX Torrelavit made an important industrial center paper.

3. The experience of painting with wine 

Discover the fusion of wine and art in an exciting wine painting workshop in the heart of the Penedès. This is a unique creative experience as you use wine as your color palette, allowing its rich and deep hues to come to life in your artwork.
