VINTAGE SPAIN NEWSLETTER. Wine tasting tours in Spain

We are starting a monthly newsletter related with wine tourism, wine travel and wine tours in Spain. We would like to do something that you find interesting and possibly useful, this is why we ask you to send us your suggestions and comments to tell us what you would like to see in this newsletter and what you don't like. We are going to start slowly because we don't want to bore people from the beginning

Every month we want to offer a special tour and to recommend at least a hotel, a winery to visit and a restaurant or another special wine related activity. We know and like the places and establishments we recommend, this is why we can talk about them and also why we would appreciate very much your opinion about them. They are all very open and friendly with wine lovers and most are out of the tourist track.

FEATURED TOUR


June 14 -16 WINE AND CAVA TOUR IN EL PENEDÉS
Barcelona Departure

This tour is the perfect complement for you Barcelona vacation. The Penedes region is only forty five minutes away from Barcelona but there is a dramatic contrast between them, from the big city to the rural area. The landscape is spectacular, sea and mountains, with small towns on top of the rolling hills, farms, beautiful vineyards at this time of the year, and the great amount of bodegas - wineries. On top of that, people are very kind and hospitable and food is fabulous. You can find the modern and innovative gastronomy that is giving Cataluña world recognition, side by side with traditional dishes. And of course we have the wineries, some of them real architectural jewels, where sparkling wine called cava here and still wines, both white and red, are produced. Although the Penedes region is well known in Spain because of the cava production, very good wine is produced here as well and a lot of wineries successfully elaborate both still and sparkling wine. One shouldn’t forget that this is the home of Torres winery one or the largest Spanish wine producers. We will of course visit Torres, as well as some of the other big ones, like Codorniu or Freixenet. We will also visit some small family wineries like Pares Balta or Can Feixes, both producers of wine and cava.

This is one of our favorite wineries because of its wines of course, but also because of its extreme hospitality. They are some of the first ones to embrace wine tourism in Ribera del Duero by opening their winery to all visitors. A modern family winery where tradition is combined with the most modern technology with the objective of the regular production of elegant fine wines.
