The summer is upon us, and many will travel along the Spanish coast to enjoy the beautiful beaches and charming towns. Along these routes, you will find that wine is a big part of the experience. There are many amazing discoveries around the corner such as specific routes for wine tourism and impressive vineyards. We’ll give you some insight into some of the best wine routes along the Spanish coast.

The Rías Baixas Wine Route

Galicia in the north of Spain gently lures you in to spend your summer surrounded by the sea and enjoying the cooler nights. The wines originating from this area tend to have a bit more character thanks to the different DOs like the Rías Baixas. Here you will find great wineries like the famous Albariño, spas for relaxing and vineyards in high altitude. You can also enjoy the sea at the Rías Baixas Marine Resort, and much more. If you are a bit of a foodie you will also enjoy the local gastronomy. It is mainly based on fish and seafood from the Galician coast.

Costa del Sol, a Winemaking Area on the Rise

This area is very popular among tourists thanks to its beaches which will remain busy through August at least. But the area has more to offer than the traditional southern holiday. Costa del Sol is increasingly focusing on wine tourism and they offer a wonderful experience on the Ronda and Málaga Wine Route. In the last few years, the average expenditure has increased to 161,90 euros per wine tourist per day in 2018. If you are looking for some inspiration this summer, we recommend taking a tour of the wineries in Montes de Málaga, the Serranía de Ronda, Axarquía and Manilva.

DO Empordà on the Costa Brava

During the season the Costa Brava will host the tourists who are looking for quality and know what they want. The area is full of wonderful fishing villages to explore for anyone who wants to know more about their history. Costa Brava has everything the adventurous heart could desire: the sea, the mountains, beautiful coastlines, natural parks, and, of course, wine. The DO Empordà Wine Route lets you emerge yourself in the traditions that are deeply rooted in this land. The history of the area dates back centuries to Roman times. You will also find wineries, shops and more to fully let you enjoy the reds, whites, and rosés of the DO Empordà.

The Canary Wine Route

The Canary Islands do not fail to impress. Tenerife is a destination for the whole year, and the Tenerife wine route is one of the most important. Here you can lounge on the volcanic sand beaches and enjoy the nautical and adventurous activities. But one of the most enjoyable activities is pairing the best wines of the area with the local cuisine.

Albariño wines, more than a grape

Albariño Wines

Albariño wines are among the best-known wines, popular and appreciated.. We have several varieties ranging from excellence a bit expensive to others quite renowned at a very affordable price for all budgets.

Speaking of Albariño is thinking about Galicia, a noble land of wines and large areas of vineyards who has been able to sell and export these varieties, headed by the Rias Baixas.

Elegant, soft, well balanced and powerful at the same time offering a very distinguished white wine that goes perfectly for the season in which we are now. If you’re traveling for tourism in Galicia during these months, please take a glass of Albariño and take some bottles home too.

This is the best investment for moments of leisure!

This specialty shows soft aromas of flowers, mixed fruit and a touch of acidity, it is fresh on the palate. They are delicious very cold and especially if paired with seafood, fish, salads, pasta and strong cheeses.

A Special design on the outside and intense flavors in the inside. This delicate Albariño has a color that catches our attention for mixing yellows and shinny greens. The apple and pineapple are in its aromas and when you drink it, you discover a fresh and deep flavor. Smells like flowers and very tasty fruits.
