You'll be spoilt for choice!

Wander through its market garden and vineyards in the Maresme, a county on the outskirts of Barcelona. You'll see how the vegetables they use at the hotel are grown and go on a guided wine tasting in the vineyards of the Alta Alella winery, overlooking the sea. To round off a perfect day, you'll enjoy a wine-pairing menu at SOLC, a restaurant whose philosophy is firmly committed to locally sourced, seasonal produce.
