The gastronomic capital of Spain,
There is no better stepping stone between two of SmoothRed’s most-loved wine regions: Rioja in Spain and Bordeaux in France than by stopping in Spain’s coastal town of San Sebastian.
Just two hours drive south and you’re drinking the finest Riojan tempranillo and only five hours north the full bodied cabernet sauvignons and merlots of Bordeaux.
Let’s not forget that San Sebastian itself is arguably Spain’s most famous region for food. It boasts more Michelin stars per square meter than anywhere else in Europe (only beaten by Kyoto in Japan) which makes it a food lovers Mecca.
This makes it the ideal destination to combine with a trip to either Rioja or Bordeaux (or both) and especially for any wine lovers wishing to add a gourmet element to their holiday. So why not enjoy the verdant vineyards and the cool sea breeze in one trip?
“Thanks for taking the time and trouble to call. You really have set the standard by which we compare all other companies!! Thank you so much for organising a fantastic itinerary with such an interesting and varied range of stop-overs. We are already starting to think about next year’s trip to France so would welcome any suggestions.”
