Kick back, fill up your glass, look out over some impossibly picturesque countryside, and feel the pace of life slow… right… down. Our wine holidays are about connecting you with a region properly, this means taking time to savour a culture and a landscape just as much as the quality wines that are produced there.

Whether it’s discovering a delicate Graciano on the charming coast of San Sebastian, relaxing on a boat as you sip a crisp Cava and drift along the coast by Barcelona, or marvelling at Valencia’s skyline as you savour a rich Rioja, every wine holiday in Spain should be this immersive.

Wine adventures in Spain

The Spanish view wine as absolutely central to a content way of life, and we agree. It’s something that brings people together, to bond a group of friends or family.

And Spanish wine is about so much more than rioja, cava and pinot noir, (though they are classics for a reason). A wine holiday in Spain will reveal to you the complexity of Spanish grapes and the connection the wines have with the landscape – all whilst helping you understand Spanish culture and how is reflected in their wine.

A Spanish wine holiday helps you truly get in touch with an area’s heritage and culture, it’s landscape and physical conditions, and how they all come together to produce incredible, world-leading wines. It’s about exploring via bike, hike and tastebuds, about meeting the people who produce such a luxury that is craved all over the world.

With local producers, fourth-generation artisans and family-run estates showing you the way around Spanish wines, you’ll return with new skills and satisfied tastebuds.
