Meet the Winemaker

Proper preparation to meet the winemakers!

UK

Insider’s Travel gastronomy tours range from the southern hills of Andalusia to the northern plateau of Castile and León, and the deep river gorges of the Portuguese border. Each of these locations represents a different corner of Spanish wine country, where we stop to visit vineyards that don’t usually open to the public. The owners are good friends of ours, whose stories flow into their wines – the character of which is drawn from the climate, and landscape, and history of the places they have chosen to plant themselves. As part of our exclusive Virtual Experiences, you can now meet these master winemakers online: take a digital tour of their properties and taste their wares from sample bottles delivered to your door.

Even if you can’t quite smell the breeze or feel the ground under your feet, this hour-long session is bursting with all the personality of these growers and their wines.

The Winemakers

You’ll hear from:

  • Lauren Rosillo on his hilltop near Malaga, where the grapes grow on slopes so steep only donkeys can plough them.
  • British Charlotte Allen, high in the Arribes del Duero Natural Park: here, the ancient granite soil of the “wild west” has been producing intense and aromatic reds and whites since before Spain became Spain.
  • Javier Bohórquez, from the Golden Mile of Ribera del Duero: this agricultural engineer and pioneer works on Tempranillo varietals he calls “wonders of nature”, in a land roamed by roe deer and royal eagles.

WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO...
