The idea was to share my experience of visiting vineyards, soak up the ambiance of the vined landscape, historic towns & of course the "taste discovery" of new wines !

The bodegas are mainly small, boutique, characterful wineries focusing on quality, all this pampering being evident in the glass!  The areas maintain an authentic old Spanish character & still are relatively hidden from the tourist trail! 

 

Toni Martin meeting Peter Sisseck - Pingus R. del Duero My wine tours are & were supposed to be singular experiences like no other wine tour, possessing a magic and create a memory, it isn´t just about great wines but also enjoying the moment. Small lesser estates are on a warmer level and my no compromise detail and service is what makes your trip special. 

Toni, myself, am originally from Ireland not far from St. Patrick's resting place and although family worked in brewing we always drank wine at the table. I have lived in Valencia for some years, exploring vineyards & old towns, meeting growers and tasting the many varied wines. Wine has always been an interest, looking forward to my pilgrimages to vineyards in Spain, France & Italy.  As a member of the Asociacion de Sumilleres in Valencia & Wine Tasting Panel of Verema, I regularly taste wines on the market from all over Spain & attend various Regional & International wine fairs during the year. I hold the WSET  Advanced Certificate in Wines & Spirits awarded in London, Sommelier Intern. & various other certificates in wine/food inc. Sumiller Vinos de Jerez, Barista Master Class Esp., El Arte Cortar Jamon Cert/5 Jotas, Taller de Queseria Valdemanco.  .... Spain like Italy & France offer great wines, cuisine & culture.

In 2022 I decided to embark on my making my own wine,  acquiring an old plot of Bobal vines and partnered with a local bodega to produce Martán Wines. This old vineyard landscape and the honest wines produced has been a rewarding yet demanding experience and I welcome you to visit the vines and taste my wines .
