The area southwest of Madrid, sometimes called the pantry of Spain, has amazing artisanal food and wine, and we will savor it to the fullest. We'll learn directly from the producers about their fantastic olive oils, cheeses, wines, chocolates, pimenton, and more. And of course, we'll do full honors to the king of cured pork - jamón Ibérico de bellota, created only in this region from the famed black-footed pigs who dine on the acorns (bellota) that fall from the plentiful Spanish oak trees. We'll enjoy the beauty of the region and taste our way through some of the best food Spain has to offer. Learn more »
