Overview of Basque Food & Wine Tour

San Sebastian, one of Spain’s loveliest cities, is also quite the Gourmet Mecca and will be your base for this Basque Culinary Adventure. It is located between the Bay of Biscay and the lush green hills of the Basque Country, with some of Spain’s most beautiful urban beaches. This small, pretty Belle Époque city has numerous Michelin-starred restaurants and groundbreaking chefs. Additionally, it’s just a short drive from the wine country.

Dining takes center stage in all of Cellar Tours’ bespoke experiences. Delight in gourmet meals at Michelin-starred establishments, and savor fresh seafood at coastal restaurants located just a stone’s throw from where local fishermen land their catch. Our personalized tasting menus are meticulously crafted to accommodate your culinary preferences and dietary needs. Relish a sumptuous lunch featuring artisanal cheeses, all thoughtfully paired with an expert selection of the finest local and national wines. Delight in an exclusive Tapas tour through the historic old town, led by a local English-speaking expert culinary guide. Journey from one esteemed bar to the next, sampling each establishment’s finest pintxos.

On this tour, you’ll explore some of the top red wine estates in La Rioja, such as Roda in Haro, and enjoy exclusive VIP tastings. Don’t worry; a private driver is included, allowing you to relax and savor your wine tasting! You will also visit family-run Txakoli wine producers. Here, you can sample unique white wines paired with fresh Bonito tuna, Guindilla peppers, and Olives, all while enjoying the view from a terrace overlooking a vine-covered valley.

You’ll also discover picturesque fishing villages like Getaria, fairy-tale medieval towns like Laguardia in Rioja, fabulous cheeses like Idiazabal, and ultra-gourmet restaurants.

Your accommodation is at San Sebastian’s finest hotel, the 5-Star Maria Cristina Hotel, conveniently located across from the Kursaal Opera House and just a short walk from the medieval center and main beaches.
