Andalucia: Wine tour

On this special journey, foodies and wine lovers will indulge their senses in an unforgettable experience full of delicious flavors and excellent wines, while discovering the beauty of one of the hidden gems of Andalusia, the region of Cordoba, and the charm of the flamenco scene in Jerez. You will have exclusive access to boutique wineries and food and wine pairing sessions with local connoisseurs.

Meet & Greet in Jerez de la Frontera

Arrival & Welcome dinner Upon arrival in Southern Spain (preferably at Sevilla or Malaga airports as Jerez has a very small airport and therefore very few international airlines operate there) we will offer transportation arrangements to your hotel* in Jerez, where the tour will start this evening with a welcome dinner. *Please check with us for the transportation costs from your arrival airport to your hotel in Jerez. * For early arrivals at the airport, please note that hotels do not guarantee an early check-in but if your room is not ready by the time you arrive, as the usual check-in time is 2pm, the reception staff will do the check-in for you and will keep your luggage in their safe room. In the meantime, you could use the hotel facilities (bar area, spa, library...) After checking-in and getting settled, you will enjoy a lovely welcome dinner to get to know all the participants and the tour leader of this adventure. Together with Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez forms what is known as the “sherry triangle”. The area is positioned midway between the sea and the mountains and is perfect for growing white grapes. For anyone who likes a good Sherry, in the traditional tulip-shaped glass (Copita), or in any glass for that matter, this may be just the place for you. Jerez de la Frontera has had a reputation for producing incredible sherry right back to the days of the Phoenicians in 1100BC. Later the Moors introduced distillation, which produced brandy and other types of fortified wines. Meals included: Dinner Read more

They are then matured using the solera system and classified into the following styles: Joven(young and fruity), Fino (dry and nutty), Amontillado (gradually oxidized), Oloroso (richer and heavier) and Pedro Ximénez (sweet and thick, honoring the actual grape name) Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & dinner Read more
