Hello, I am Sílvia Roig, born in Vilafranca del Penedès some years ago already, I have lived all my life on this wonderful land, located in a privileged place. Surrounded by vineyards, 15 minutes from the sea, 45 minutes from Barcelona and 2 hours from the Pyrenees.
My first contacts with vineyards were when I was very young. My family had a farmhouse surrounded by vineyards and I was playing there with my brothers and my cousins. We patiently waited for the harvesters to finish to rush in to the fields with our baskets to find all the grapes that had been left. We could spend hours there…… Crushing the grapes with our feet and doing “wine”.
Later, life took me on other paths but, about the 12 years ago I returned to my origins, by the hand of a great family winery that awaked my passion for my home land and it’s vineyards. These were also, my first steps into the world of Wine Tourism.
I’ve got my education in Incavi and University of Girona. with Enoturisme Penedès I went through all the courses, seminars and training programs offered, thus enjoying continuous training (currently studying a Master’s Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management). At the same time my experience was growing and growing and my will to share my passion for the world of wine turned out into this project: Cal Roig – Unique Wine Experience. A room dedicated to the world of wine, for you to enjoy and it doesn’t matter what your level of knowledge is.
