Taste the flavours of Northern Spain on an epicurean journey through one of Europe’s most rewarding food and wine regions. A wine-lover’s variant of the stellar Northern Spain Real Food Adventure, this special itinerary comes courtesy of Vinomofo, like-minded friends of Intrepid whose wine knowledge and connections take the experience to the next level. Taste not only the best of hearty northern Spanish cuisine – from Catalonia through to Galicia – but visit handpicked provincial wineries along the way to sample some of the region’s most beloved varietals. Explore the underground caves of Laguardia, hit the beach in San Sebastian, experience a traditional Asturian sidreria (cider house) near Oviedo and venture to vineyards around Santiago de Compostela.
