Discover the jewels of the sunny Mediterrean coast of Spain on a wine-themed cruise from Lisbon to Barcelona. Travel through Spain & France. On your culinary and wine cruise vacation, explore the rich traditions of Spanish regions from Andalucía to Catalonia. You’ll be treated to special shore excursions, offering an insider’s look at the ingredients, cuisines, and techniques that give Spanish food and wine their signature flavors.

Each day will be filled with special food- and wine-themed events and activities designed to expand your knowledge and appreciation of Spain’s traditional foods and wines.  For example, you can indulge in sherry, tapas and paella on your delicious food adventure.   But don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to soak up the area’s fascinating history and alluring beaches.  Visit Jerez de la Frontera, the “Sherry Capital of the World”. Explore the Museo de Vino (Wine Museum) in Mijas. Snack on tapas, prepare paella under the guidance of a local chef, and learn the traditional method of producing olive oil in Mallorca. Every port offers a new treat for the palate.

The eight-night Windstar Culinary and Wine Cruise around Spain embarks from Lisbon, Portugal.  You’ll love the ports-of-call to half-a-dozen Spanish ports including Cádiz, Málaga, Cartagena and Valencia.  This special cruise will be hosted by a Saveur Chef, who will be joined by a Master Sommelier.   Winemaker Jorge Ordonez, the largest U.S. importer of Spanish wines will also be available to talk with passengers about Rioja, Tempranillo, Albarino, or Sherry wine.

This wine and culinary-focused voyage will set sail on the 312-guest Wind Surf, a luxury yacht of Windstar Cruises.  The beautiful yacht is quite different from an ocean liner cruise ship. It has seven triangular, self-furling, computer-operated sails and travels up to 15 knots, aided by wind and engines.  The ship’s 191 service-oriented staff provides personal attention to each discerning guests.
