If you're interested in local culture, walk around the historic center of Valls or attend any of the meetings castellers that take place regularly in the capital of Alt Camp, the most important tradition of Tarragona and probably throughout the Catalan territory. If you love good wine, you can choose to visit a nearby winery ; and if you prefer walking and sport you can follow some of the marked trails on foot or by bike, or visit the Cistercian Route, full of monasteries recognized internationally.

The winery was founded in 1886 by two brothers, Joan and Daniel Padró Valldosera, though old documents which have been unearthed prove that wine had certainly been grown here for a long time before that.
The history of VINS PADRÓ spans five generations, through which the work and dedication of our ancestors has survived and continues to this day. Now the new generation is in charge of contributing its knowledge and applying it to making wine and the cultivating the vines.
We have managed to improve and adapt our existing facilities, adding the latest wine making technology to produce high-quality wines.
Ageing takes place in American and French oak casks.
Since 1960 we have been bottling our wines in a plant set up at our own winery.
Crianza wines are made with the grapes obtained with the oldest vines. The cellar includes 650 barrels of American and French oak.
The geographical area where our winery and vineyards are located is within the Tarragona Denomination of Origin.
It is the oldest wine denomination in Catalonia. Its wines were prized as far back as Classical times, when they were exported to Rome.
The white grape varieties cultivated here include macabeo, muscat, parellada and xarel.lo. From these grapes we make our white wines – these varieties provide freshness, acidity, balance and fruity aromas.
Varieties such as Chardonnay have been included to diversify the range and the style of the wines according to the demand of new markets. This is also the case of Sauvignon Blanc, which provides wines with a touch of elegance.
The red grapes include the ull de llebre (tempranillo), which is the predominant variety here. It gives light, fruity wines, both red and rosé.
Merlot has gradually been introduced to new wines to bring them finesse and aromatic nuances. The result of its vinification is wines with strong colour and texture, ideal for ageing in oak barrels.
