Hit the tasting trail in Northern Spain on a wine-lover’s adventure from Catalonia to Galicia
Taste the flavours of Northern Spain on an epicurean journey through one of Europe’s most rewarding food and wine regions. A wine-lover’s variant of the stellar Northern Spain Real Food Adventure, this special itinerary comes courtesy of Vinomofo, like-minded friends of Intrepid whose wine knowledge and connections take the experience to the next level. Taste not only the best of hearty northern Spanish cuisine – from Catalonia through to Galicia – but visit handpicked provincial wineries along the way to sample some of the region’s most beloved varietals. Explore the underground caves of Laguardia, hit the beach in San Sebastian, experience a traditional Asturian sidreria (cider house) near Oviedo and venture to vineyards around Santiago de Compostela.
In additional to your foodie Intrepid leader, this trip comes with the added bonus of a wine specialist from Vinomofo, which means double the epicurean expertise
Enjoy tastings in top provincial wineries sought out by Vinomofo, including Vinedos de Paganos in Laguardia, and Losada Vinos de Finca in Cacabelos
Steeped in pride and tradition that stretches back an age, Catalan cuisine is all about fresh local produce. Get a chef’s insight into the best ingredients at Santa Caterina market
Logrono is a wonderland of top-notch taperias, each with their own speciality. Watch the master of mushrooms at Bar Soriano prepare hundreds of buttery, garlicky wild mushrooms for you to feast on during a tapas crawl
Sample Rioja, the signature local drop, in the unique surrounds of Laguardia. Centuries-old cellars lie beneath this fascinating medieval walled city
One cannot eat and drink all day, so mix things up by taking a hike in the epic Picos de National Park, soaking up its gorgeous Alpine-esque landscape
Few places do a farmers market better than Potes – it’s been happening here in the same spot since the 1200s
Spanish food can be pretty meat and seafood-driven, means options can be limited for vegetarians in some places. We've done our best to cater to everyone, but tradition runs strong in this part of Europe!
An easily transportable bag is recommended (as opposed to a big, bulky suitcase). There will be transfers using various kinds of transport, and travelling light if possible will make things easier for you.
Accommodation is twin-share, and single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge – just ask your agent. Note that this is not available in all hotels, however. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but two single beds that can be pushed together instead.
