Spanish Wine Tours

Spain has a long history of producing great wines and on our gourmet wine tours you'll find out exactly why the country's produce is so popular.
 
Thanks to its abundance of grape varieties and its rich and diverse terrain, it is able to produce a fantastic array of wines that complement its delicious cuisine. Indeed, food and wine go hand in hand in Spain and are a major focus of our gourmet wine and culinary tours. As well as sampling produce from some of the country's most exciting winemaking regions, from Rioja in the north to Andalusia in the south, you'll also dine in traditional tapas restaurants, explore the country's local food markets and take part in Spanish cooking classes with celebrated chefs.


All of the wineries featured in our tours have been hand-picked for the quality of their produce, as well as their architecture and the experience they offer to visitors. You'll learn how Spanish wine is produced and hear all about its history. We also offer specialist wine tasting events and courses in beautiful settings such as castles and exclusive hotels. If you're feeling adventurous, we can also arrange horse riding tours of the vineyards or hot air balloon flights high above the Spanish countryside.


Visit Spain's major cities Madrid and Barcelona, where you can eat in Michelin-starred restaurants and taste exclusive wines. Or head to San Sebastian in the Basque Country, where you'll find more Michelin-starred eateries per inhabitant than you will in any other place in the world. Alternatively, why not travel to Seville for an intimate food and drink experience in the home of a private chef? Our gourmet wine tours feature an incredible range of gastronomic activities that will give you an unforgettable taste of Spain.

Discover more with a visit to a wine museum


Whether you're sipping sherry like Barbadillo or Byass on an Andalucia wine tour, trying reds in Rioja - such as Lopez De Heredia and Remeriz De Ganuza - or tasting the tipples of other regions like Catalonia, Navarra and Basque Country, you'll learn even more with visits to wine museums.

These provide illuminating exhibitions, covering the history and heritage of the beverage, through to explanations of the different varieties of grapes and wine. You may also learn about the specialties of every region and the method for making the drink, from harvesting the fruit and preparing ingredients, through to aging and bottling.

In addition, during your wine tour in Spain, you will gain a strong understanding about the culture and architecture of the country, as well as the importance of its wine on a global scale.

Bringing home a few bottles of your favourite vintages is, of course, one way to relive your Spanish wine holiday from the comfort of home.
