Let's go to VIJAZZ, the perfect fusion of wine and jazz

Why VIJAZZ?

Vijazz is a celebratory, interactive event where it is possible to taste the best wines and cavas from the Penedes along to the beats of jazz music: an impressive fair of wines and champagnes made ​​in Penedès, free jazz concerts, world-class artists, as well as many parallel activities: guided tastings, visits to wineries, brass bands, street entertainment etc...

It's also a great opportunity to discover Vilafranca del Penedès: the wine capital of Catalonia, and one of the oldest vinicultural cities in Europe; which features dozens of wine cellars surrounding the city. Moreover, Vilafranca is a very beautiful town, with lots of impressive modernist houses (Catalonia's unique version of Art Nouveau), an important mediaeval town, incredible vinyards, a very rich cultural heritage and, last but not least, the town with the most important colla castellera (humans pyramids team), a Catalan tradition declared by UNESCO to be a masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
