Raise a glass of Cava and say ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! - during a gala New Year’s Eve in Barcelona...
New Year’s Eve – or La Nochevieja as it’s known here, is ‘the old night’. Friends gather together for a final time before the arrival of the New Year. According to Spanish tradition, you should eat a grape (or uva) at every chime of the countdown clock to midnight … We’re quite certain that a sip of wine at each stroke will bring you just as much luck for the year ahead – but we will enjoy the traditional uvas too.
During our tour, we visit pioneering producers including Miguel Torres; and find out more about Spanish bubbly with exclusive access to a Cava producer. We welcome the New Year in style during a Gala dinner party; and the next day is yours to explore the city itself. The enchanting seaside city oozes culture, and is filled with glorious architecture. Perhaps more importantly, it’s also a world-class drinking and dining scene.
