  5. 5. Your source for authentic wine and culinary experience in Spain and Portugal Spain and Portugal represent a vast territory all together, but above all it's a peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Such geographical configuration means very different climatological influences for the regions with different grape-growing districts (DOs), which have their own appellations. The working patterns in the wine producing regions are  Terroir, or soil type  Average and total annual hours of sunshine, average annual precipitation  Land elevation  Winemaking techniques authorized and practiced  Permitted types of grape varieties within defined boundaries  Grape-growing practices allowed
  6. 6. Your source for authentic wine and culinary experience in Spain and Portugal Local producers' activities are deeply intertwined with the wine culture, sometimes regulations and local practices. All the potentiality of a wine is expressed within the limits and possibilities of the previous features. But no matter how determinant these features are on the different appellations, from an enological and viticultural perspective , they mean little to the average tourist. Local wine producer and wine tourist have different perspectives
  7. 7. Your source for authentic wine and culinary experience in Spain and Portugal A wine tour or wine region is more attractive than another based on different criteria. Far from the concerns of the local wine producers, a wine traveler would look at the following features:  Weather trends on specific time of the year  Culinary habits and specialties  Renowned chef or Michelin restaurant in the area  Activities other than wineries  Types of accommodation on offer (rural, classic, boutique or luxury hotel)  Cultural cities or sites in the wine region and local festivities  Landscapes, nature and natural parks  Specific craftsmanship of the area  Number and profile of wineries (landmark or historical name, biological, etc..)  The profile and experience of the tour director or guide All above make the multi-criteria evaluation before traveling to an Iberian Wine region From the travelers’ perspective
