An interesting word in Spanish, for which there is no direct English translation, is “sobremesa”; meaning the time spent in conversation at the dining table following the meal. And just as this word conveys, this is the authentic Spanish experience (along with enjoying a bottle or two of local wine between friends, old and new).
Join us on a wine tour to two or three cellars around Andalucia or La Rioja. Discover some of the finest award-winning red, white and rosé wines accompanied by Spanish tapas, and end your day with a traditional afternoon lunch at one of the vineyards. The choice of multiple-course Spanish afternoon lunch at a vineyard varies by season and by day. Lunch includes all additional wine with your meal as well.
