During our Oct. 2006 visit to Spain my recommended Spain Travel Agent arranged two wine tours for us, one in the Jerez region of Spain, the other in the Rioja wine region of Spain.

Both wine tours were given by personal guides, accompanied by a personal representative or family member of the Bodega owner. Taking a wine tour will not only allow you to experience the wines of the area but can also immerse you in the culture, art and history of Spain. Wine tours can also include gastronomy experiences, such as an introduction to Spanish tapas or lunch at a select restaurant.

Sherry wine tour
The Jerez de la Frontera area is famous for its sherry wines, which are my personal favorite. On this wine tour we had the opportunity to visit what are known as the other cathedrals of Spain and enter areas not open to the general public. One of the Bodegas we visited was a major art surprise.

Rioja Wine Tour
Spain produces some of the best wines of the world and many consider the Rioja wines some of the best wines of Spain. In Laguardia we went below the village into wine cellars carved out in medieval times for storage. Besides including stops at famous traditional wineries our tour took us to the contemporary winery designed by leading architect, Santiago Calatrava.

Our English speaking guide and private driver provided us with a memorable day.

Did you know:
Spain has more land devoted to wine production than any country in the World.
Spain produces around a billion gallons of wine each year.
