The New Old World. Spanish bodegas are producing bold new styles attractive to the adventurous, alongside established successes. This exciting union of ‘new’ and ‘old’ manifests itself in places beyond the vineyards. Architecture enthusiasts will be thrilled to find 13th century medieval villages tucked closely alongside the modern Bilbao landmark of Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum. Your palette too will be pleased to explore the traditional and contemporary, while discovering the true art of tapas, shopping for ingredients in Barcelona’s Boqueria market, or delighting in a master wine tasting in an underground 15th century cellar.
