“Expectations exceeded w/ trip to La Rioja!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

Thanks to Vintage Spain, my husband and I had the time of our lives in the La Rioja wine region! With only 2 weeks to prepare, Cristina and Sonia put together a fabulous 36 hr trip that surpassed all of our expectations for a great wine trip. Our guide, Judith, was phenomenal. A local of the area she not only educated us on the area but was fabulous to spend the day with and entertained us like we had been friends for years. We visited 3 wineries, the wine museum and had a delcious 5 course gourmet meal. From start to finish - Vintage Spain not only arranged for a fantastic trip, but they took away the hassle and headache of setting up all the logistics and helping us explore the area in the most efficient and entertaining way possible. Highly Recommended!!!

“Penedes Day tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2011

Excellent tour. We planned a private 1 day tour to Penedes. They were excellent to assist in planning the trip, helpful information on customizing our trip and wineries selection based on our experience. Sonia was our expert in the office and really assisted and spent time to asssit in meeting our interests and making sure we had a great time.

We visited 3 wineries all which had different and interesting backgrounds. Also got to tast many local wines that were different to the region. Met nice and interesting guides and winemakers.

The tour guide Adrian was nice and friendly, gave us information and history on the region and Barcelona where we were staying. We felt relaxed and comfortable all day and fully enjoyed the experiece. Will use this company again when wine tasting in Spain.

We made last minute arrangements to visit three wineries in Rinero Del Deuro, Jaime did a great job of making the arrangements and Carlos did a fantastic job of transporting, translating and keeping us entertained. Overall they went well above what could be expected.

“If you take just one wine tour, make it this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2011

I've taken a lot of wine tours. Most are big bus loads of people being herded in and out of commercial tasting rooms. Not this tour. We were delighted with the wineries we visited that were definitely "off the beaten path." Each winery provided a unique opportunity to view the "behind the scenes" activities you usually only see with a private tour. Jamie was a very knowledgable host. It was a fun and educational day!

“Priorat Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2011

My wife had a brief visit in the Priorat with Cristina's help. I cannot say enough about it. We stayed of the top floor of the Hotel Sport, ate a wonderful meal at Irreductibles and toured some of the regions best wineries. Our guide Rachel was extremely helpful, knew the winery owners and provided us with information about the history of the region as well as the wines. It was a great trip. This was our second trip through Vintage Spain, having done the Rioja and Ribera a few years ago. We will certainly use them again whenever we go back to Spain.
