“Ribera del Duero Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2011

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.

“Best Value for Learning About and Enjoying Spanish Wine- Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2011

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.

“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.

“Great Visit to Ribero Del Deuro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2011

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.
