Wines and Tours wishes a Happy Christmas to all its followers And announces its 2018 programme of fun tours for wine lovers.
Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
We hope you all have a great Christmas with your families. When the last Christmas Cracker has been pulled, when the last mouthful of Christmas pudding has been ingested, when the last drop of port wine or brandy has been drunk, a kind of glazed contentedness tends to shroud us. Then, as often as not, our minds drift to the summer holidays. At such time we would like you to consider the many and varied offerings that you can find at www.winesandtours.co.uk.
As usual, we offer a choice of “Scheduled, Sequential” group wine-tours and a new larger selection of “Anytime” exclusive tours where you choose dates to suit you. We invite you to explore our expanded, more luxurious 6-day Douro Valley Wine-tour.
Our video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Pop2D2ZgSAQ shows our wine educator friend, Jose Ramon Jimenez Berger, (Jose Berger for short) in full swing during the evening start of our 4-day Rioja wine-tour in September 2016.
In the last two years, we asked Jose Berger to introduce some of the styles of Rioja wines during our initial evening (prior to the start of our annual 4-day Rioja wine-tour), to give our guests an idea about the versatility, taste and the aptness of pairing Rioja wine with food on a Pintxo bar crawl (pintxos are like tapas) by visiting six different wine bars in Logrono.
A large band of crickets serenaded us as we tucked into our delicious starter of huge, tender, mussels in an olive oil and lemon sauce. Zephiros caressed our cheeks with a gentle, cool, breeze that turned the temperature of Greek summer sun to something just perfect. A couple of hundred yards away children splashed in the still blue sea.
