Enjoy the best wine country experience with our friend and expert guide, Paddy Mannion and El Moli Tours

Good wine is nothing without good company and that, naturally, involves good food too. Irishman Paddy Mannion has spent thirty years learning about all three, in the course of a career as restaurant manager and sommelier in Ireland, Holland, Germany, the USA and Spain. Happily settled in the D.O. Penedès just south of Barcelona, he is today an acknowledged authority on the people and wines from Penedes to Priorat, and a guide to enjoying all that is best about Southern Catalunya.


Penedès is one of the most innovative wine regions of Spain, famous for its Cava sparkling wines, powerful reds, subtle whites, within the near future it will be the first organic wine region. I look forward to giving you a good overview of the different styles of Cava, Xarel.lo whites and new age reds, with insights into the history and life of this beautiful wine region. Cheers Paddy Mannion
