Program

September is a wonderful time to a Spanish wine tour enjoy in the high altitude clarity of Old Castile, savouring the wonderful reds of Ribera del Duero, the vibrant whites of Rueda, via some magnificent castles, mountains and squares. Regional gastronomic specialities like Segovia’s suckling pig match the heavier reds of the region while Rioja and Navarra mark the transition to the north in style of wines and dishes, through patatas con chorizo, local peppers and tomatoes accompanied by more delicate reds and aged whites.

The Basque coast offers a stark and very visually striking contrast, txakoli white wine with local tuna and anchovies introducing us to the distinct gourmet feel of green Spain by the Cantabrian sea. Some of the world’s best ham is never far away and the mixture of ancient and modern architecture, winemaking and culture makes for a heady mix.

Included excursions

  • Visit to the 1st century Roman aqueduct and medieval Alcazar in Segovia
  • Walk the San Fermines bull run in Pamplona
