The social program will consist of 2 events:

1) Visit to the Codorniu Winery (www.codorniu.com)

The imposing Codorníu winery buildings in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia were constructed between the end of the 19TH century and the beginning of the 20th (1895-1915). They were declared a Monument of Historical and Artistic Interest in 1976 and represent one of the most outstanding examples of winery architecture designed specifically for the production and ageing of cava. The winery is not only an impressive architectural complex – it continues to be the neuralgic centre, and indeed symbol, of Codorníu’s tradition and values.

The architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, who, together with Gaudí, was one of the leading representatives of the great Catalan modernist architectural school, was in charge of the design and construction of the winery.

Puig i Cadafalch perfectly combined creativity with regard for specific requirements and functionality in this type of building. He also emphasized his respect for the surrounding natural environment. Features of the land permeate the building giving the impression that the very winery has emerged from the earth on which it stands, or rather, with which it blends.

2) Gala dinner at the Taberna del port (www.latabernadelpuerto.net)

Located in the beautiful port of Aigualdolç, the "Taberna del Port" is one of the best restaurants of its kind. Local seafood, fish and meat guarantee, together with their cooking skills, an unforgettable experience.
