Independent travel specialists, Frontier Holidays organise tailor-made vacations in Spain. Since launching in 2001, the company has thrived and this success can be attributed to the director’s passion and in depth knowledge of all things Spanish, having spent 20 years living in the Iberian Peninsular.
Frontier Holidays (frontierholidays.net) strive to offer their clients an unforgettable holiday experience, uncovering a host of Spain’s hidden treasures. The most recent and exciting addition to the Frontier portfolio is their Wine, Dine & Walk Tours, offering a winning combination of high quality accommodation, fine gastronomy and gentle walks in scenic surroundings. Top-class wine producing regions, La Rioja and The Priorat in Catalonia are the chosen destinations for these unique tours, making them the perfect break for wine lovers.
A Wine, Dine & Walk Tour in La Rioja is bursting with exciting activities that will leave you the envy of all your friends. Enjoy daily walks through the charming Galician countryside – including two days walking on the world renowned Camino de Santiago. Along the way, you will visit the region’s finest vineyards including the famous David Moreno Bodega.
Take the opportunity to enjoy an extraordinary culinary experience at the wonderful Hotel Echaurren, where the fifth night of this 8 day trip is spent. Take part in a special cookery master class in their Michelin Star Restaurant, El Portal. Then, after spending some time in the heat of the kitchen, you can relax and sample several mouth-watering delights from the chef Francis Paniego’s Tasting Menu.
The Priorat in Catalonia hosts the second of Frontier’s new Wine, Dine & Walk Tours and is the ideal option for those who prefer their walks slow and relaxing. Wander through idyllic landscapes then indulge in the region’s gastronomic delights as well as a glass or two of fine wine. Flexibility is at the heart of this break as you have the option to choose between a 2, 3 or 4 day escape. Visit each of the region’s vineyards or select the very best to enjoy - the Wine Tasting & Tuition at the Marça and Capaçanes is exceptional. Also worthy of mention is the Wine Museum in Falset, where you can learn the history and techniques of wine-making.
Whichever of these terrific tours you elect to book, you definitely won’t be disappointed and with the expert planning of Frontier Holidays, all you have to worry about is which wine to sample next!
Cheers or ‘Salud’ as they say in español!
