Oh those Spanish wines!
The Spanish wine regions of La Rioja and Ribera del Duero are two of the most famous and prestigious wine producing areas in the world.
This unique wine tasting journey takes in winery visits to the smaller privately owned “bodegas” as well as the renowned Estate of Dinastia Vivanco.
Apart from wine tasting, you’ll enjoy delicious regional cuisine in charming local restaurants and your accommodations in the Rioja will be a delightful off the beat and path wine hotel.
This Spanish Wine Country Tour begins in Leon one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. While the great cities such as Barcelona attract many tourists, Leon is thankfully far less crowded. The Barrio Humedo offers many tabernas which offer regional foods, great wines and plenty of local color. Architecturally it has much to offer with its beautiful Gothic Cathedral which boasts some of the most stunning stained glass windows in the world and the Casa Botines which was designed by Antonio Gaudi.
