Libertyville, IL – TourCrafters is launching a special online brochure, Winery Tours and Tastings All Over Spain, featuring 3-day/2-night Escape packages that include city hotel accommodations with breakfast, a one-to-three-day car rental, and a visit to a nearby winery. The Escape packages provide a chance to visit some of Spain’s most appealing cities and towns and to taste and learn about Spain’s most interesting wines. (Those who would rather eat than drink, can substitute a gourmet lunch in an authentic local restaurant for the winery visit.)
For example, couples booking the Barcelona Escape can drive from Barcelona to the nearby Vilarnau Winery for a guided tour of the wine cellars and a tasting of their Spanish “champagne” and other wines, then enjoy the sights, shopping and restaurants of Barcelona.
The package starts at $319 per person and includes two nights at the Hotel Catalonia Albeniz in Barcelona, daily breakfast, a one-day car rental and the visit to the winery. This escape can be combined with a Pintxos in Pamplona package, which provides two nights at the Hotel NH El Toro in this city known for the running of the bulls, breakfasts, a three-day car rental and a walking tour with pintxos(Basque tapas) and wine tasting in four different bar/restaurants (from $359 per person). Then a drive through La Rioja wine region can be added, ending up in Bilbao, where there are several packages available.
