Some of our clients usually ask about independent wine tours meaning a self driven tour to reduce cost of transportation.
I realize the cost of transportation is high, particulary when the wine tour is only for 2 people, but we always encourage to contract transportation basically for 3 reasons. The first one, and most important from my point of view, is that a full day of wine touring means to taste at least 7-8 wines + the one we will probably enjoy in the lunch and obviously to drive is not reccommended. The second point is that most of the wine regions in Spain are 1-2 hours from the main cities which makes driving more complicated. To end, Spain is not currently prepared for enotourism meaning that the wine regions do not have a solid structure of transportation, wine cellar bookings….which makes tourism life easier.
