2019 Wine Tours in Europe

Join Jennifer Pounds Chambless and sommelier, Donald Hackett of Vin Voyage, LLC for two fabulous weeks learning about and tasting wines in Spain and Sicily.

Spain

May 26 – June 1, 2019

Settle into the cosmopolitan city of Bilbao and from there explore the Basque regions of Getaria and Rioja with Jennifer and Don.  Next, head to Burgos, the historical capital of the Kingdom of Castille, with its magnificent Renaissance and Gothic architecture.  We’ll use Burgos as our home base to visit the regions of Toro and Ribera del Duero.

Sicily

June 2 – 8, 2019

Our week in Sicily will include a wide variety cultural, historical and culinary experiences.  We’ll drink plenty of wine but also spend more time delving into the many facets of this diverse island.  We’ll spend an entire day on Mt Etna, including a visit with a volcanologist, exploring the unique ways this microclimate affects wine production.  The better part of the week, we’ll be in Siracusa, known for its ruins and open air market in Ortiga.  From there we’ll explore the wines regions of Vittoria and Noto. A cultural guide will join us for a walking tour of Noto Antica, which was destroyed by the infamous earthquake of 1693, and also the Baroque town of Noto.  During the week, we will also visit a farm or two to learn more about the local agriculture – think olives, ricotta, almonds and more wonderful Sicilian delicacies.
