The wine tourist is looking for history, and in his quest to discover that history, he is looking for flavor, looking for the identity of the place, looking for the antagonism of getting lost in the landscape, in the flavors, fragrances and knowledge of this place like no other, of the pleasure of walking along ancient sidewalks, of walking through the vineyards at dawn, of stepping on the red earth and harvesting from it the fruit of that intoxicating nectar whose origin predates the written word.
Since the 5th century BC, Celtiberians, Romans, Alans, Visigoths and Arabs have passed through this land, creating a genetic and cultural melting pot that makes this a special place in world history.
In addition to this almost fairytale-like and mystical dimension, there is the complementary elegance and well-being of living and dwelling in an area, and the contemplative and experiential enjoyment of what the countryside is in all its aspects: Region, Landscape, Agricultural Practice, Harvest, Winery, Wine Tasting, Local Gastronomy, Inhabitants, Heritage, Architecture, Art and Culture.
The wine tourist is neither a mere visitor nor a spectator, he seeks the border between living with the place and inhabiting a space, immersed in its culture and tradition, he ceases to be a tourist and becomes a friend, someone who delights us with his arrival, someone who saddens us with his departure.
