Spain wine tours are an opportunity for any wine lover to taste some of Europe’s finest styles from a myriad of different regions, each with its own alluring charisma – where the only constant is being bathed in sunshine.
At Wine Paths, we have handpicked the best wine tours Spain has to offer – from elaborate tastings in centuries old wineries and gourmet food pairings to soaring above the vineyards in a helicopter tour as a part of a VIP package.
Together with Wine Paths’ local experts, all of our exclusive Spain wine tours, including vineyard visits, luxury stays and unique experiences, can be tailor-made to meet your specific needs – ensuring every detail is taken care of before you step foot on Spanish soil. Our Spanish wine tours cover the most renowned regions in a country that devotes more land to vineyards than anywhere in the world and has over 400 grape varieties – ranging in styles from the eponymous Rioja reds to sparkling white and rosé cavas.
As part of our wine tours in Spain, you can take a private tour through the mythic land of Rioja– the cradle of Spanish wine. Despite being one of the smallest of the country’s provinces, Rioja’s influence on Spanish wines is immense with over 500 bodegas in the north-west region. With most of our wine tours of Spain, there’s an opportunity to explore the vineyards accompanied by an expert guide, meet the owners to understand the production process and, of course, sample prestigious wines often accompanied by local cuisine.
Further south in the Catalunya wine region lies Penedes where almost the entire production of Spain’s answer to Champagne, cava, comes from. Among our Spain wine tours in Penedes, is the chance to explore the stunning landscape by electric bicycle or a unique opportunity to unite the worlds of wine and opera with a concert featuring some of the most popular arias, duets and trios in the country.
Ribera Del Duero is challenging Rioja for the title of Spain’s premier wine producing region, where vineyards are accompanied by age-old castles, cathedrals and medieval towns. Our exclusive heritage tour of the region is steeped in the culture and history of the area– with overnight stays in castles, visits to UNESCO World Heritage sites and wine-tastings with Tempranillo wines, Spain’s signature grape, at award-winning estates.
Sherry is enjoying a renaissance, and there is no finer producer than the Pedro Domecq winery in Jerez, suppliers of the Royal House. Our Spain wine tour of this jewel of Andalusia includes tastings at the winery accompanied by a professional guide before the chance to take VIP seats at the Royal Andalusian Academy of Equestrian Art to watch the famous ‘dancing horse’ display.
Fine wine is always complemented by food, and we offer several wine tours of Spain that indulge in pairings with local gourmet cuisine. There is a pilgrimage to the heart of Iberian ham country in Sierra of Arcena where the world’s finest hams are cured in the mountain air for up to three years. And, a tour of two wineries in Catalunya that finish with either a selection of thirteen gastronomic snacks or a full meal prepared by a local chef and served with a selection of wines and cava.
