We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of the Ribera del Duero. Our guide was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The two wineries we visited (Valsotillo and Calleho) were welcoming and had some great wines to taste. We only wish we could have shipped some wine back to the states but for some reason that is difficult in Spain. Lunch at El Lagar de Isilla was spectacular. Definately in the top 5 meals we had on our three week visit to Spain and Portugal. It is a two hour drive (each way) from Madrid to the wine region so be aware of that. All in all a great day and would highly recommend.

We had limited time to visit the Rioja region (2 full days) but with the magic touch of Christina our trip exceeded our expectation at every level. We had a special request to visit wineries that sold to Canadian liquor board and Christina was able to accommodate. We would use her services again next time we are in the region.

We met Ismael at the statue in Santa Ana Plaza and it was fun from the beginning. Lots of laughs and great food and wine. We entered bars that are off the beaten track and learnt so much about wine and customs in Spain. Ismael was a brilliant guide and it set us up to be more adventurous in discovering out of the way bars as our holiday continued through the south of Spain. Will definitely be telling friends back home to do the tour! Thanks Ismael for a great night.

Seven months after our trip to Barcelona my family is still talking about how wonderful our tour of 2 wineries and lunch in the Penedes region was. Vintage Spain worked with me to arrange a customized trip to meet everyones taste, there were 9 of us aged 21-63, and did a fantastic job of it. Starting with Feliciano our most informative and thoughtful guide for the day and Mireia at
Gramona and Sylvia at Pares Balta wineries who knew the history behind their wineries thoroughly and gave colorful and informative descriptions of the wines we were tasting (which were quite good). The restaurant,La Vynia Nova in El Bruc, was beyond compare offering delicious local cuisine and wines and providing exemplary attention. If we or any other members of our family find ourselves in Spain again we will definitely ask Vintage Spain to arrange a tour. I highly recommend them.

Having just returned from a week in Spain, I feel compelled to share our amazing experience with Vintage Spain. I had previously used their services for a one-day excursion during a vacation earlier this summer and was so pleased with the company that it was an easy decision to use them again when returning to Spain to visit La Rioja this November. This time, we coordinated several days of activities through Vintage Spain for our party of six people and yet again they delivered a first-class experience that exceeded all my expectations. First, the planning process via email could not have been easier. They truly listen to your wish list and with prompt turnaround they design a fully custom itinerary to meet all your needs, often improving upon your vision with great suggestions based on their intimate knowledge of the area. They coordinated our travel from city to city with a wonderfully courteous and helpful driver and they also organized a wonderful day with a tour guide who led us through wine tours, tastings, a visit to Laguardia, and a tour of the wine museum where we had a lovely lunch looking over the vineyards. It could not have been more seamlessly planned for an action-packed weekend that somehow felt relaxing despite how much we were able to see and do. I could not more highly recommend Vintage Spain, especially if you love food and wine and are looking for a company to design a personalized experience that caters to those interests specifically.
