26 Jan Enotrekking: visiting Can Suriol FROM VILAFRANCA on foot
Yes, “enotrekking” is strange term and we probably did make it up, but it is the perfect word to introduce this activity that combines sport, wine and culture.
Our first enotrekking stop is Can Suriol winery, in El Penedès. The route begins at Vilafranca train station, runs through vineyards and ends in the picturesque town of Font Rubí, where, in addition to tasting the wines of the Suriol family, we can admire unique buildings such as the Masia Grabuac, constructed by the well-known modernist architect Puig i Cadafalch.
To arrive on time for the visit at Can Suriol winery (they usually start at 11 in the morning), it is best to arrive at Vilafranca del Penedès around 9. As the idea is to drink some wine and do some sport, we suggest leaving the car at home and getting on the R4 line of the Rodalies train. From Barcelona you should consider that the journey takes about 53 minutes, there are trains approximately every 30 minutes and currently the price of a single ticket is 5.5 euros. The schedules can be consulted on the Rodalies website.
