The Costa Daurada, given its climate and geographic location, is one of the most important wine and vineyard pieces of land in Catalonia. In fact, in this area alone there are 5 prestigious Denominations of Origin that will delight all those wine and gastronomy lovers: Montsant, Tarragona, Conca de Barberà, Penedès and finally, and perhaps the best known, the DOQ Priorat. For this reason, wine tourism and gastronomic events are an important part of the annual agenda in this area of the province of Tarragona.
Below, we shall present some of the most interesting wine fairs and festivals that take place throughout the year on the Costa Daurada and that we believe can be perfect for both adults and children to enjoy a weekend surrounded by vineyards, wine and good company. It is worth noting that most of these events take place during the spring or autumn.
Falset Wine Fair
The Falset Wine Fair is a fair dedicated to the two denominations of origin wines of the Priorat region: the DOQ Priorat and the DO Montsant. In this respect, at the beginning of May, the wineries participating in the fair give their wines to taste to all those who buy tickets at the entrance of the fair.
In addition, apart from the wine tastings, during the weekend there are also numerous events such as: activities for children, conferences, introductory wine tasting courses, wine cooking competitions, open days at several wineries, wine pairings or oil sampling, among others.
Xarel·lada de Cunit
Enjoying the sea and the wine is now possible thanks to the Xarel·lada de Cunit. At the beginning of the summer season, people and entities related to wine collaborate with the establishments of Cunit and organise this exhibition and Xarel·lo tastings on the municipality promenade, with the aim of creating a space of recognition for the Penedès wine, and in particular the Xarel·lo.
Throughout the day, families, groups of friends and couples can enjoy a day full of music, activities, sea breeze, food and wine.
Enjoy wine and art in a setting full of beauty thanks to the Trepat Festival, a very cultural and family-friendly festival!
At the end of spring, the Associació festa del trepat and the town council of Barberà de la Conca organise this wonderful festival where wineries and artists share the same space to present their creations. In addition, throughout this special day there are also musical performances, a children's area and food stalls, so that the whole family can enjoy a day where wine tourism and culture are the protagonists.
Poboleda Old Fashioned Harvest Festival
Poboleda Old Fashioned Harvest Festival is held at the end of summer / beginning of autumn, and its main goal is to promote the Priorat wine tradition and the wine tourism sector in the area.
For one day, history and wine meet in Poboleda, in a festival that honours the town’s wine-making traditions, recreating how the grape harvest was done in the old-fashioned way. The festival begins with the ringing of the bells to signal the time to go to harvest the grapes and continues with a cart ride to the vineyards. There is also grape-stomping, as it was done in the old days, as well as a breakfast and other activities.
DO Tarragona Grape Harvest Festival
As you well know, autumn is one of the most important times for wine, as this is when the grape harvest takes place. Therefore, to celebrate it, during this time of the year, a number of wineries with DO Tarragona join forces to organise the DO Tarragona Grape Harvest Festival, which includes various fun activities related to the grape harvest, such as Escape Rooms or breakfasts in the vineyards, most of which can be enjoyed by the whole family. And don't forget that, throughout the year, the DO Tarragona Wine Route also organises a lot of activities to enjoy with the youngest members of the family.
