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 😉
The majority of the visits I make to wineries are when we go on holidays.

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

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!
