The German poet and novelist Goethe used to say; “Spain, the beautiful country of wine and songs.” And he was right, because the different types of climate and soils make the Peninsula an unique place for the production of a wide range of wines.

Every time there’s more and more people willing to spend their  spanish holidays enjoying some of the finest wines on each area. But also getting to know its great landscapes, gastronomy and culture.

Five destinations for wine lovers in your spanish holidays:

  1. Rioja Alavesa: As the time passes, the Rioja Alavesa has become one of the main destinations for “wine lovers”. Here you have the chance to enjoy its 50 wine shops, museums and some traditional or modern wineries like Ysios, for the most daring.
  2. Ribera del Duero: This denomination of origin, located between Valladolid, Burgos and Soria, is a secured bet for those interested in tasting one of the country’s most popular wines.
