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.
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.
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.
I didn’t know a lot about Spanish wine production, but I like wine and I like Spain, so I decided to learn more and booked a trip to Rioja with SW. It was just great! Everything clear from the beginning, the scheduling of our trip was perfect. Accommodation as expected. We appreciated a lot to travel this way for our 10th wedding anniversary. The guide was always available and translated explanations given in Spanish! I already look forward to traveling to the Sherry region with you guys. Thanks again!
