Again, this is a tour we would give 4.5 stars, if available. There were about 20 of us on a comfortable bus. We visited the small Jean Leon winery and had a very nice tour and excellent wine tasting with cheese, olive, crackers, etc. A very knowledgeable host was a bonus and the everything was excellent. This was followed by a visit to the Torres winery, which is one of the largest in Spain and was quite amazing in the size of its operation. However, that was no drawback, as the wines they served with their most excellent selection of cheeses, were superb. We wished we could purchase more than the one bottle, but will have to find them at home. The last visit was to the Friexenet winery. Again, excellent wines served with local meats and cheese. Another really enjoyable and worthwhile tour. Our only complaint would be having to listen to the same long-winded announcements on the bus in two or more languages before each stop.

This was an excellent tour with 14 English speaking people and 2 non-English speaking people which caused the guide to spend an unexpected amount of time with the 2 non-English speaking tourists. The tour was advertised as English speaking, so we were disappointed at all the dead time waiting for 2 people to catch up with the rest of the group. The guide also seemed confused that these two people were assigned to the group, as he told us he did not expect nor does he normally conduct bi-lingual tours. Other than the lag time, this was a very good tour and we felt it beat expectations based on our entry level knowledge of the wine region. The wineries selected for this trip were excellent choices which presented a great overview of the region and wine making styles.

Tour was great, the scenery was wonderful and you get about 10 full sized pours, plus cheese at Torres and Tapas at Frexinet! Tour at Torres and Freixenet was very informative.

What a fun day. I enjoyed drinking as well as learning about all of the wines that we experienced. All 3 wineries had their own unique experiences for the group. We were both pleased by the environmental consciousness that is practiced by the businesses. I am a bit more discriminating b/c of what I learned when buying wines since my experience.

The vineyards were great to see. Torres was fantastic. The way they set up the wine tasting was spectacular. I have ordered their wines now a couple of times.
