Saturday, 2 July, from 9:00 to 17:30. Excursion to Montserrat and Cavas Freixenet

Montserrat is a mountain of 4,054 ft (1,236 m) high, rising abruptly from a plain in the NW of Barcelona. On a narrow terrace, more than halfway up its precipitous cliffs, is a celebrated Benedictine monastery, one of the greatest religious shrines of Spain. Only ruins are left of the old monastery (11th cent.). The present monastery was built in the 18th cent. and restored after being destroyed by French troops in 1812. It has a valuable painting collection, library, and museum. The Renaissance church (16th cent.; largely restored in the 19th and 20th cent.) contains the black wooden image of the Virgin which, according to tradition, was carved by St. Luke, brought to Spain by St. Peter, and hidden in a cave near Montserrat during the Moorish occupation.

Freixenet is concentrated exclusively on the production of cava, a natural sparkling wine, following the method used in the Champagne region (France) since the XVIIIth century. They built their cellars in the town of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia in Catalonia, Spain. The town is located in the heart of the Penedès, a region famous since Roman times for the quality of the wine produced there. By the beginning of the 1970s Freixenet was well established in the Spanish market as a strong brand with a clear vocation to expand on the international stage. The constant efforts made by the company since then have led to continuous expansion in world markets and made the Freixenet Group in the mid 80’s the world leader in sparkling wines produced by the traditional method.

Please note that bus seats for the Saturday excursion must be reserved during Conference registration.
