Since a couple of months I am working for the winery Tinto Pesquera in the wine region Ribera del Duero. I´m in charge of the visits and the tastings, as well as the contact with tour operators and the development of wine tourism. Since I haven´t written about Tinto Pesquera before, I think it´s about time I do!
For the first edition of the Dutch magazine Espanje! I´ve been interviewed to talk about the wine tourism of Grupo Matarromera. It was super exciting to see the magazine in all the book stores. If you are interested in buying the magazine (with many great tips about traveling in Spain, about Spanish food and also to practice your Spanish with some of the articles), the magazine can still be found in the book stores till the end of this week.
If you are interested in a translation of the article, let me know 😉

Wondering what would be the best time of the year to do a wine tour in Spain? The answer is simple: in September!

And in Emina Rueda, Cyan and Valdelosfrailes, the wineries where I work, you will be able to experience the harvest yourself!
Are you planning on visiting Spain during the coming months? Then you will be one lucky person if you like wine! From the end of July till the beginning of October the grape harvest will take place. As you might know, here in Spain we are always looking for an excuse to party, so naturally we make a big festivity of the grape harvest as well: Welcome to the Fiestas de Vendimia!
With wineries in Spain, the U.S. and Chile, and with products sold in more than 140 countries, Torres is one of the most known wine group of Spain. The group is not only famous for its products, but also for its wine tourism, which is seen as modern and innovative and can match against the wine tourism of Napa Valley. That is why, when I was in Barcelona last week, I simply had to bring a visit to the Torres winery in Penedès.
Do you travel to Valladolid? Great, because this city forms the perfect base from which you can discover several beautiful wine areas of Castilla y León! Of course you could opt for Ribera del Duero, a well known and highly valued wine paradise, but maybe this choice is too obvious. Do you want to discover an authentic wine area, where you won´t be one of the thousands of wine tourists visiting wineries? Then go to Cigales, the land of the Spanish rosé. And it is only 15 minutes driving from Valladolid!
