Cristina was born in Burgos and now she lives between Madrid and Miranda de Ebro, ten minutes from Haro, the wine capital of Rioja. Her grandfather and uncle were wine traders in Ribera del Duero and in her family they always buy the wine directly from the winery, so wine and wine regions is something she knows very well. She spend seven years in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, and she loves to travel. After coming back to Spain she decided to create Vintage Spain - Rutas de Vino.
Jorge has studied wine making at the local school, has worked in wineries in Spain and Portugal, and he is an official cultural and history guide.
My husband and I spent a day with Jorge visiting three wineries, eating a traditional lunch, and seeing the sites. It was fabulous. Jorge was everything you would want in a tour guide - personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. He took us to three different wineries that really showed the variety in the region. We also had lunch which was delicious plus he took us to sites such as castles along the way. On top of all this, he knew the history of the area, the wines, and could make recommendations for the rest of our stay. Really a wonderful day.
