VINTAGE SPAIN NEWSLETTER. Wine tasting tours in Spain
 TIME TO RELAX WITH FOOD AND WINE ...  

After the intensity of the harvest tours we have started a quieter and more relaxed time great to enjoy the wine and food of Spain. The International Wine Fair in Madrid takes place in November, check out our proposals and agenda.

Weather is warmer in Barcelona and La Mancha, so we suggest a gastronomic activity in Barcelona or a visit to a ecological/organic winery: Dionisios. We also want to tell you about a great new book on Spanish wines, The new Spain by John Radford.

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

GASTRONOMIC BARCELONA: COOKING DEMOSTRATION AND LUNCH IN A PRIVATE HOUSE

A Spanish friend with a great house in one of the nicest and most elegant neighborhood of Barcelona opens her house for special visitors. After the guided grocery shopping in one of Barcelona markets, you will go to the house to attend the cooking demonstration. The meal then will be served in a very stylish atmosphere. Uniformed waitresses, fine china and a small art collection contribute to the refinement of the occasion.

Our host, a food, wine and art lover will welcome us and will share the meal with us. She will also show us the art collection and the house cellar.
