The vineyards have accompanied the Castilian and Navarra landscapes for centuries with castles, cathedrals, medieval towns built in stone and old palaces with shields in their facades. These are also part of an endless number of stories and legends that our ancestors have always told us with a glass of great wine in the hands.

This is a private experience for people who want to further their wine knowledge and discover what's behind wine, crossing the north plateau of Spain to find the hidden treasures far away from the touristic roads. Four nights traveling from Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Navarra with a local private guide expert in wine and Spanish heritage.

You will visit impressive castles, enjoy old recipes prepared like thousands of years ago and taste some of the best wines of the country. Sleep in old castles where you will feel like a king, and learn about the wine production of 500 years ago with local families, while sharing an aged wine.

Some of the places you will visit in this tour have been declared World Heritage by UNESCO: an impressive aqueduct built 2,000 years ago, the old castle called “Alcazar” perched on a rock, that was the residence of the first kings of Spain, the Burgos cathedral, where it is impossible to discover each detail of elegance designed in its stones. And villages like Olite and Laguardia, where you feel the passing of time walking in narrow streets with old cellars underneath, the wine aging under your feet.

You will taste the wines of Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Navarra. These are the lands of the tempranillo grape variety, the most famous Spanish grape. Exclusive winery visits will show you how wine is related to the history and heritage of Spain.
