I have made two trip to Ribero del Deuro with Vintage Spain and both while totally different were really exceptional. We most enjoyed visting some of the smaller fmily run bodega, the owners are so gracious and proud to show you whta they do to produce the great wines they grow. Our guide Carlos was very knowledgable and a pleasure to spend the day with.

Cristina Alonso of Vintage Spain is very knowledgable about Rioja and Ribera del Duero. She comes from the area. We spent 8 days touring the regions with her.

She herself is a Wine Connoisseur, so a pleasure to go wine touring with. She has excellent entres to the best Bodegas in the regions. She is also great FUN.

It wasn't all wine. The eating and fun occassions were amazing. We went to eateries we would never have found. We did things that are memorable.

The organisation of the tour was impeccable. From the start in Bilbao to getting on a train back to Madrid.

Our wine group normally have an off day in the middle to recuperate. I would recommend spending an extra day to allow for a day off.

We used Vintage Spain to organise a 'semi-guided' tour of Rioja and Ribero Del Deuro ending in Madrid. Their advice was excellent, the organisation like clockwork and nothing was too much trouble from start to finish. We would thoroughly recommend their services.

My wife and I have recently returned from our trip to Spain and Portugal. We decided to do a short wine tour just north of Madrid and found Vintage Spain online from home to try and set something up. I usually do not write comments on pages like these however, this company and their tour was exceptional. We went with a semi guided tour were we rented a car and drove ourselves around the area. Other than the car rental everything was set up and waiting for us with no money changing hands with any other providers. Our hotel Palacio de los Serrano was beautiful and in the small town of Sotillio. The two wineries we visited were great and the staff there were very knowledgeable and patient with my wife and I as we are both new to wine tasting. A very special thanks to the family at Val Sotillo winery for the extra time they gave us. The finally was our lunch in the small town of Penaranda 100 yards from a 14th century castle. This tour made our trip and really allowed us to see a real part of Spain. I would suggest this company to anyone as the staff were very efficient and professional. On our next trip to Spain we will definetly be booking another tour with them.

This was an amazing experience. My wife got to see 6 distinctively different ways of making Spanish wine, tasted some outstanding food, and learned a ton about the Rioja and Riberia districts. If you are a wine lover, this is a must-do when visiting Spain, and I can't imagine anyone doing a better a job than Vintage Spain.
