Barcelona Day Trip to Torres Vineyards, Sitges and Calçotada

This past January CEA Barcelona took the students for the first Day Trip. We had an excursion to a vineyard and to a beach town south of Barcelona, called Sitges. We headed off to the Torres Vineyard at 10am. We arrived there at about 11:30am and had an interesting tour of the vineyard. The Torres family has many generations of wine-making behind them. They also have vineyards in Chile and in Napa Valley (California). We went on a trolley around the vineyard and saw their wine and the vines. To end this delightful tour we had a taste of their white wine, it was exquisite! After the tour, we made our way to a country house to have a traditional Catalan treat “Calçotada”. Calçot is the name given to a local variety of spring onion, which is cultivated in a very particular way. We each had 10 “calçots”, 1 butifarra (sausage), lima beans, French fries, escalivada (roasted veggies) with ali-oli (mayonnaise with garlic) and a roasted artichoke. We were stuffed!! Eating calçots is a bit tricky, but after the guides gave us a demonstration, we picked it up quickly. After finishing our ice-cream for dessert, we headed out directly for Sitges. We had a nice “siesta” on the bus ride there. Walking along the beach promenade was a sight to die for! Even though it was the middle of January, there were sunny skies and breath-taking views. This small town has a special charm to it.
