TourCrafters Announces Food and Wine Tours in Spain

( Libertyville, IL, April 24, 2007 – With culinary tourism gaining in popularity and Spain the current culinary hot spot, what could be more natural than for TourCrafters to offer a series of short food and wine tours for visitors to Barcelona.

A 4-day/3-night “Taste of Barcelona and Penedes” costs $709 per person in a 3-star hotel or $839 in a 4-star hotel, and includes two nights accommodation in Barcelona, one night in a spa hotel in coastal Sitges (near the wine center of Penedes), daily breakfast, a traditional Catalan cooking class, a meal with Spanish wine, an evening tapas walking tour, a two-day car rental, visits to two Penedes wine cellars and all local taxes.

Those interested in practical experience can take a half-day cooking class, learning to make local specialties such as paella, gazpacho, potato omelet and Catalan cream. The $95 price includes a meal with Spanish wine and translated recipes. Combined with a guided tour (and shopping expedition) in La Boqueria, Barcelona’s famous market, the class costs $115 per person.

For those who simply want to enjoy, there are three Tapas Tours that vary from an evening to a full day and include a walking tour through the Gothic Quarter with a special guide, visits to gourmet shops and a stop for tapas with a glass of wine or beer. (The full-day tour also includes a three-course lunch with wine.) Prices start at $93 per person.

A choice of Chocolate Tastings (including a “chocolate dinner”) and an Olive Oil Tasting round out the selection of Barcelona’s culinary possibilities.
