Convento de Cogolludo
Ribera del Duero
Stay in a beautifully restored medieval castle in the heart of the region, Castillo de Curiel. Renovated with modern facilities while emphasizing its historical charm, the castle is a perfect jumping off point for exploring the wineries of the Ribera del Duero. You’ll soon be immersed at the organic winery of Bodegas Comenge, which has been making their stylish red wines since 1999.
Did you know that the section of the Rioja that is in Basque country is called Rioja Alavesa? You’ll be staying two nights at the iconic Finca de los Arandinos, the first wine tourism project in La Rioja that combines winery, hotel, restaurant, soa and tours.
For many, the resort town of San Sebastian is where culture, modernity and gastronomy meet in Basque country. Visit the world-famous Bilbao, dine at the famous restaurants, and relax at the Jesuskoa apartments, an 18th century stone building that has been transformed into a charming retreat.
The sunny province in Southeast Spain is the second last stop, where wine lovers will discover a well-preserved old centre as well as a burgeoning new artisanal wine scene. Returning to their roots, independent producers are now recovering old native wines and making exciting modern styles from grapes such as white Moscatel, Bobal, Malvasia and Garnacha.
