We start our tour by tasting our way through Spain’s most famous wine region, Rioja.  We’ll explore the outstanding cuisine and internationally famous wines the area is known for. We will get our fill of Tempranillo, Granacha, and white Rioja, but we make sure to provide a well-rounded itinerary as we will taste both modern and classic wine styles, learn about a wide range of topics covering the complex history and culture of the area, and provide you with time on your own to make your own discoveries.

 

In the second half of the tour, we’ll make our way to another one of Spain’s great food regions. The fiercely independent Basque Country, or País Vasco as it is known in Spanish, is a picturesque mix of beautiful beaches, verdant agriculture, and sophisticated cities and small towns located in northern Spain.  Perhaps above all, the Basque region is known as a true foodie paradise.  Rumored to employ more chefs per capita than any other part of the world, the Basque region is full of culinary delights.  It is also home to the indigenous Txakoli white wine, a crisp, lightly effervescent variety that naturally accompanies the seafood of the northern coastline. Near the end of the tour, we venture out on a half-day side trip to the French side of País Vasco.

 

Highlights include:

 

  • Tapas and wine bar hopping experience in Haro
  • Classic wineries in Haro - Lopez de Heredia, Muga, Gómez Cruzao and RODA
  • A typical Riojan lamb lunch at Terete
  • Lunch at Marques de Riscal winery
  • Explore the medieval hill town of Laguardia and its underground caves
  • Stay in the Basque country in Getaria on the coast
  • Chef's table dining experience in San Sebastian
