The Wines of Northern Spain
An amazing blend
of old traditions and new techniques
Traveling to Spain on a wine and food tour planned by me will be an immersion into the culture and food of Spain. In the wine industry there is an amazing blend of old traditions and new techniques. From the beautiful city of Barcelona you can visit the regions of Penedes (must visit Montserrat while there), and Priorat. While in Barcelona you MUST spend an evening experiencing a Tapas Crawl along with viewing the awe inspiring works of Gaudi.
As you travel west, you will be able to learn and taste a variety of Spanish wines and of course Cava, the sparkling darling. Many Cava producers still craft this wine by hand-riddling and hand-degorging each bottle.
There are many caves used for wine production and storage, there is even a winery who stores their wine on the floor of the ocean!
