AndalusiA: Malaga, cadiz & Seville
WINEMAKERS, SEAFARERS, & A MICHELIN STAR
OCTOBER 15-22, 2023
Andalusia through Malaga, Cadiz & Seville, October 15-22, 2023.
Savour the tastes & sensual pleasure of ancient & modern Andalucia on a journey linking 3 vibrant cities, each with a very different story.
We start in the city where Picasso was born. Malaga, an exciting cultural reference point since its recent reinvention with a vibrant foodie scene to go with it.
We climb up into the hills of Malaga to understand this region’s premium wine and its winemakers, visiting the likes of heroic viticultor, Lauren Rosillo at Sedella & Friedrich Schatz, the Swiss former flower seller, one of the champions responsible for the Sierra de Malaga’s comeback in producing premium non-fortified wines.
Beyond the famous Andalusian white villages, we travel to the southern tip of Spain where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean to Western Europe’s oldest city, Cadiz. The gateway to the Americas when Columbus set sail & returned with new riches for the palate. We savour all its culinary heritage, fresh fish, fortified wines & everything in between.
Long lunches, lazy dinners & engaging local flavour – its people & its cuisine. On to Seville for our last night Michelin star extravaganza & raise a glass to this land of contrasting cultural heritage.
