Vijazz brings together the best wines and the best jazz. An annual event since 2007, it takes place on the first weekend of July in Vilafranca del Penedès (on the outskirts of Barcelona).
In addition to great jazz, 50,000 visitors enjoyed 70,000 wine and cava tastings last year. Few things combine better than wine, cava, and music as Vijazz has proven.
During three intense days, the historic center of the city is transformed and welcomes visitors with open arms. Enthusiasts, experts – anyone who wants to enjoy and learn more about the superb local wines while listening to free outdoor concerts from the best jazz artists in the world.
As a festival, the Banco Sabadell Penedès Vijazz has a reputation as one of the best music festivals of its kind and is placed among the leading jazz festivals in Europe. And what’s even more amazing is the fact that a festival of this quality is free.
The jazz is perfectly complemented by the opportunities to sample up to 300 wines and cavas from the best wineries in the Penedès. Over 40 regional producers will bring their best wines and cavas to the tasting space of the Festival Banc Sabadell Vijazz Penedès.
Rosés, white, black, classic and sweet Dolmen will delight the palates of all who try them. Tastings and pairings are led by top winemakers and sommeliers, and are accompanied by jazz music playing in the Food & Jazz square located on the Rambla de Sant Francesc.
Here you’ll find quality cuisine from a selection of food caravans offering pizza, vegetarian food, cakes and empanadas, ice cream, pancakes and traditional food, among other things.
