The Torelló’s vintage moto-bar
The iconic Piaggio Ape has been restored to become a meeting point for visitors
Torelló is debuting with the surprising Piaggio Ape 500 (1964 model) which has just arrived at the Can Martí masía (country house), reconverted into a vintage “moto-bar”.
The iconic Piaggio Ape 3-wheeler has been restored completely artisanally and converted into this fun “moto-bar” which will serve as a meeting point and tasting centre for the visitors to our winery in the Penedès.
This is one of the novelties that will form part of a series of activities that the cellar in Gelida is preparing for the spring, when the health situation improves. It is a vehicle with three wheels with a cabin and an adapted rear end, converted into an elegant wine bar, with incorporated bar and ice bucket, to allow tasting in the open air the Torelló DO Penedès wines and Corpinnat sparkling wines.
This vintage “moto-bar” can also move among the vines on the historic estate, move to pop-up events all over the territory, to wine fairs and to private parties. The brothers Paco and Toni de la Rosa Torelló are thrilled and hope “to put this new initiative under way soon, when the health situation permits”. A most versatile vehicle, full of history, that is now awaiting the start of new experiences in Torelló.
In addition to these novelties, the winery offers various wine tourism activities: the traditional visit to the winery and underground cellars with a final glass of sparkling, the visit with a wide wine tasting, the premium visit that includes a tour on the vineyards, a visit to the family masia house, the cellar, cavas and a rustic brunch with bread with tomato, spanish omelette, cold cuts and local products. Meditation and mindfulness sessions are also held between the vines and other solidarity open days or events during the grape harvest.
