Hi! I am Boris and I would like to briefly introduce my exclusive and tailor made services to you: "OENOTOURISM" in Andalucia. Go to the page and read "My advice" if you want to skip this introduction.
There is a growing interest nowadays for wine tasting all over quality wine producing areas of Europe. The trend is coming from the wine tasting market in the Napa Valley, California, and is rapidly expanding worldwide to far away places and good quality wine producers like Australia, Argentina and Chili and of course to our sun drenched Mediterranean neighbours of Portugal, France and Italy. The common factor in all countries is oenotourism, mixing the palatable pleasures of degustation with high class tourism.
In southern Spain, particularly in Andalusia - OLE! - and the Costa del Sol -also named as Costa del Golf-. this sunniest part of the country is home of some of the best and most singular wines in the world: the Malaga Moscatel & Pedro Ximenezwines and the Sherry and Manzanilla wines from Jerez region. In Jerez de la Frontera, they are elaborated in century old wineries like Gonzalez Byass and its famed Tio Pepe sherry or Osborne wineries known for its Soberano brandy and its manzanilla wine. All final products are aged in naturally air-conditionned cellars which can be visited. The route for tasting Malaga wines takes us to the mountainous Axarquia countryside with breathtaking views of the dazzling white coast bordering the intense blue Mediterranean sea. You will be delighted to visit the oldest Malaga winery formerly sole purveyor of Malaga wines to HM the Queen of Spain Isabel II. The vineyards and cellars are nested in a really spectacular Montes de Malaga Axarquia landscape with panoramic views over the splendid sierra mountains down to the sea.
