How to get around Pendès Wine Region

Penedès Wine Region goes from the coastline to higher grounds and it has small cities such as Vilafranca del Penedès, Vilanova i la Geltrú or El Vendrell, which are well connected by train and bus from Barcelona and Tarragona.

Once in the Penedès area, the smaller towns are well connected by road and with some intercity buses, which you can find on the official website of each municipality or ask to the tourism offices.

If you use an electric car, we have good news! More and more companies on the Wine Route are offering an electric recharging point. Some towns also provide spots to park and charge your car.

    Get around the Penedès Wine Route

    If you want to get to the smaller towns or tour the Penedès Wine Route, ypu have to take into accunt that many of the wineries, farmhouses, rural tourism and some restaurants are located among vineyards, where the use of private transport is usually necessary.

    However, it is also possible to get there by bike or on foot through the Penedès walking paths network, or by using the bike lanes, which are increasingly present among towns.

    If you feel like cycling, there is a bicycle rental hub at Lavern-Subirats train station where you can start a guided or self-guided route to go to one or several wineries, visit a town or simply enjoy the landscape and the wine area. You can also contact one of the bicycle rental companies on the Penedès Wine Route and see their options. A healthy way for you and everyone, in the short and long term!
