Wine has inspired the great creators of art, music or literature throughout history. It has served past civilizations to find the energy needed to fight and survive. Wine is the blood that flows through the Mediterranean countries, it is part of their daily life and the history that their villages have forged while transporting large vessels and barrels in boats and chariots. The same power of wine has created some of the most impressive architectural buildings in Spain. Large wineries that preserve wines in quietude under the shade of superb structures that we can contemplate today in our wine regions.
We have designed this four night tour through Rioja and Ribera del Duero to show you these wineries and their creators. Think of an itinerary in which the astonishment between the great cathedrals of wine and the great wines of La Rioja and La Ribera del Duero are assembled to create an unforgettable memory in your mind. Big names in architecture like Frank Ghery, Norman Foster, Richard Rogers or Santiago Calatrava form an itinerary of forms and colours that you can discover with a glass of wine in your hand.
Discover the essence of the most rooted flavours in the Spanish fields under the shade of the great creators of modern architecture. Enjoy hotels that blend geometric modeling in wood, steel, glass or concrete. Cross the north of Spain to contemplate the forms of the past, the architecture of our ancestors and the pause of time reflected in the wine and the exceptional footprint that the hands of our contemporaries have left in warehouses, museums and hotels.
Paired with wine and architecture there is Spanish food. Spain is now at the top of the world's gastronomy with Michelin star restaurants, creative chefs and avant garde cuisine, without forgetting the traditional dishes and the Mediterranean diet. You will enjoy the food that has made our country a foodie's paradise.
