Sherry wines fortified with wildlife (6 days)
An enchanting wine tour to capture the essence of the mediterranean cultures embodied in the wine. Perfect tour to ignite discoveries in the realm of the lynx.
I have invested time and have progressed greatly into wine knowledge over these years. My interest in wine started like an affair with sparkling wines, particularly Champagne and then Cava , learning directly from the producers in Penedes. I started to read on all wine topics. I am resolutely an insider when it comes to Spain and Portugal, with a special mention to the people behind wines. In the world of wine, I keep on learning new stuff every day like a rocky. The day I approach the wine culture with a snobby attitude will damper any progress and excitment, I don't want that! The wine culture is best grabbed in serenpidity, it's about accidental occurences..and lots of fun.
To me, there is no better plan than the one that allows everyone to discover wine regions at their own pace, through entertaining and endless conversation while strolling in the vineyards.
I have enthusiastically led international groups on more than 15 different destinations.
Thank you so much for a very enjoyable afternoon on your Sierra de Francia tour. Your passion & interest in this region, & Bodega Cambrico knowledge & enthusiasm for the vineyard, along with your translations of such, made for a very informative & enjoyable outing.
Great company, lovely wine, beautiful towns & countryside.
P.S. We may be enjoying one of those bottles we bought right now :)
My sister and I are from the United States and were in Salamanca for a week visiting my niece. We noticed a pamphlet advertising a one day Sierra de Salamanca tour and thought we would give it a try....I am so glad we did! We had an absolutely picture perfect day visiting several quaint villages and touring an organic winery.
Helena and Pierre were fantastic hosts. I hope to return one day to experience a longer tour. If you love wine, do yourself a favor and contact Slowwines.
Just a little word of thanks for your Slowwines people! I thought our trip got off to a bad start, as upon arrival at the airport in Madrid, the rental car agency never seem to have heard of us! We called the Spanish office straight away and in less than half an hour, we had a nice car to start our self-drive tour to Ribera del Duero. Instructions were clear, this wasn't just a map an a few directions. The tour itself was perfectly timed and measured! We never drove long distances and arrived at the scheduled visits without hurrying! That was pure pleasure.
