Château de La Dauphine in Fronsac is no stranger to this blog. They were first featured when they won their first Best of Wine Tourism Gold Award in 2014, for Architecture & Landscapes. Hardly surprising, as this beautiful 18th century chateau and its park are nestled in the foothills of the vineyard slopes of Fronsac, overlooking the banks of the Dordogne.

Villa Lucia Museum in Laguardia, in partnership with Bodegas Valdemar, located in Oyón-Oion in Rioja Alavesa, have collaborated to develop an extensive all-inclusive tourism program that enables consumers to visit wineries and museums without any visual, auditory or physical limitations. Throughout the properties and without the need for prior appointments, people with disabilities can learn about wine and wine production and enjoy an integrated experience.

This effort recently earned them a 2020 International Best Of Wine Tourism award.

On August 30th, 2018, in Vila Nova de Gaia, the new project of Real Companhia Velha opened its doors, with a visit centre, a museum, a bar, shops, tastings and restaurants: the 17•56 Museu & Enoteca (Museum & Enoteca) is located close to the Cais de Gaia (Gaia Pier). It is a modern, welcoming place, where the wine is highlighted and where it is the dishes that accompany the choice of nectars. And there is so much to choose from: both in terms of wine and in terms of food.

Enjoy a captivating experience in the Gerardo Cesari wine world!

Bodegas Murua in Elciego is much more than a winery, although the  winery building, an old stone manor house surrounded by vineyards in gently rolling countryside, creates a picture perfect image of a classical winery.

This image, along with a spectacular collection of artwork and wine-related literature, earned Bodegas Murua a 2020 ‘Best Of’ Wine Tourism award for Art & Culture from the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.
