Cava & Hotel Mastinell, Vilafranca del Penedes, Spain
Why We Love It:
Designed to resemble the beauty of stacked cava bottles, the Cava & Hotel Mastinell certainly ranks up there as one of the most architecturally-bizarre hotels in the world right in the heart of Vilafranca del Penedes in Catalonia's premier wine-making region. A destination experience not to be missed, surrounded by intoxicating Catalan wine and gastronomy, the great outdoors are as inviting as well. Almost "instagram-perfect", this is the hotel to be for the wholesome wine experience.
Best Time To Visit:
Autumn season undoubtedly during the wine harvesting time in October to November for the late harvest where the festivities are in full flow. Summer allows for indulgence of not just the vineyards in its full green spectacle, but also the fervor of the Costa Brava and of course, the unique Catalan tradition of the castellers human towers that enhances your journey of this region of Spain to the maximum.
