  • Food and wine in Spain

    Food and wine holidays in Spain

    Spain offers a wealth of culinary, food and wine experiences. Each region of Spain boasts its own styles, techniques and flavours which draw on unique local ingredients.
    The importance of wine production, olives and fruits is apparent as you travel throughout Spain and many hotels bring you a fusion of these flavours and products with an array of tastings, visits to producers and cookery lessons. Some of these are arranged for you as individuals during your stay, whilst on others you join a small group locally.

    Wine holidays in Spain
    Wine production is a hugely important industry in Spain, with vines being grown over vast swathes of land across the country, producing a number of renowned varieties. Many hotels throughout the country allow guests to sample the wines produced in the local area, some guided by an expert sommelier. Some of these hotels are situated within a wine estate themselves and offer the opportunity to explore the vineyards and wine cellars, learning about the process from field-to-glass before sampling the wines themselves.
    Hotels which offer wine tasting include Hotel Viura and Marqués de Riscal in the heart of La Rioja, Mas La Boella and Mas de Torrent in Catalonia and Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine in the Ribera del Duero region. There is also Hacienda Zorita, which offers a unique wine spa where guests can enjoy tastings as they enjoy wine-infused therapies.

    Gastronomic holidays in Spain
    Some of the world’s best restaurants can be found in Spain, with a particularly high number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the Basque Country and Catalonia. San Sebastian is said to possess a higher concentration than any other city in the world. Many of our hotels offer the chance to discover regional cuisine through restaurant dining and by taking part in gastronomic activities. The Parador hotels are renowned for serving outstanding regional cuisine, often using local produce to create authentic local specialities. Mas La Boella in Catalonia offers cheese and olive oil tasting sessions, while Consolación in eastern Spain invites guests to embark on truffle hunting expeditions.

    Cookery holidays in Spain
    Cookery lessons are an excellent way to get to know the cuisine of a region, allowing you to learn how your favourite dishes are prepared from scratch. Guests can learn how to cook with regional ingredients at the cookery school of Hotel V... in Andalucía, learn from a highly skilled chef at Valdepalacios in Castilla-La Mancha, take part in themed cookery lessons at Consolación in eastern Spain, or discover the local cuisine at La Residencia in Mallorca.
