Art meets wine culture in this acclaimed experience

Take a journey to the Zaragoza countryside on this full-day wine tasting and cultural tour, with lunch included. Discover the stunning terroir of Cariñena, a Spanish Denomination of Origin (DO) and one of the oldest protected growing areas in Europe. This interactive tour will take you beyond the confines of the city to experience the source of two of Zaragoza’s most famous products: impeccable red wines and the artist Goya.

After pick up at your accommodation in Zaragoza, you will visit a traditional, family-run bodega (winery) and meet the talented winemaker for a tour of the grounds. Your group will explore the neatly planted vineyard and learn about the different varietals planted in the region. Along the way, you’ll learn about the winemaking history of the region and why exports having quadrupled since 1995. Next stop – the cellar, where dusty oak barrels slowly age youthful fermented grape juice into deep, well-rounded Carignan wine (locally referred to as Mazuelo). Swirl, sniff, swirl, sip away!

After the winery tour, your group will visit the birth house of famous Spanish painter Francisco de Goya. You’ll also explore the Engraving Museum, which displays the graphic work of Goya in permanent collection of his graphic work from the series “Los Desastres,” “Los Caprichos,” “Los Disparates,” and “La Tauromaquia”. 

Before heading back home, we’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch of Spanish classics in a restaurant in the region. Your local sherpa will share fascinating stories of the region, guaranteed to make you feel like a local!

Jorge helped make our visit very special

This was our first visit to Zaragoza which we really only made on a hunch. Our train, after our walk on the Camino, passed through Zaragoza on the way to Cordoba. However, when I read a bit about the place I thought this sounds interesting and we have to stop there; so we organized a three day visit and we were VERY glad we did. I also thought we don’t have much time and we want to maximize our experience there. It was then that I inquired, and was recommended by Diego, who runs the company from Cordoba, to get in touch with Jorge.

Jorge was very prompt with booking inquiries and his friendly, relaxed and very competent approach to our questions helped us feel reassured that we were going to have a great time – and we did! He had a few suggestions as to what we might do that included the history of Zaragoza, both culinary as well as historical. His knowledge of his city and his passion for the regions good food and drink helped to make our stay very special. His personality is friendly, laid back and thoroughly charming. He showed us places in the city that I’m sure we would have never found on our own.

One particular event he almost insisted we do, as it was the only time of the year they do this, was to take a trip out of the city and visit a small town, Carinena, to experience their annual wine harvest festival; we didn’t even know this fantastic little place existed let alone held an annual as well as regionally famous wine and food celebration.

When we got to the town we visited their wine museum which was interesting because it focused on their region and had great displays of wine production, local history, geology, climate and traditional harvest machinery. After that we walked to the center of town where they conducted a celebration ceremony that included speeches, traditional grape crushing by feet, a pageant of beautiful girls in traditional costume from nearby towns and last but not least – the world’s only (probably) working, clean and public wine fountain!!! Yes – bring your glass, place it under the statue to fill and taste… – surprisingly good!! A short walk from there was where the town put on food and wine tasting that showcased the best from the region. There was a wonderful variety of tasty tapas dishes washed down with excellent local wine – superb!! Do yourself a favor and book this event with Jorge for next year, before someone else does!
