Testimonials

The magic of the Spain Experience lingers. First of all having a cohesive and fun group really helped! In a word I would describe the trip as extraordinary, as there was nothing ordinary about the experience! I was deeply impressed with every winery, their wines, their people, their hospitality. What they all had in common, whether large or small was an unwavering, uncompromising commitment to quality, excellence and innovation! I thought the pace of the trip, while brisk was not overwhelming. The accommodations were well chosen, no major issues, I particularly liked the Westin, the London and the Village Hotel. All said, a singular experience that left no regrets and was worth every penny. I would love to do more!

Thanks again for your master execution on the Wine Tour de España!  What an adventure! For someone coming from outside the industry, the experience was invaluable.  Spending a week with wine experts, tasting, touring and discussing all aspects of winemaking helped me to absorb information in a way that wouldn’t be possible on my own. Gaining access like we did through your connections with the Spanish winery owners and winemakers allowed the entire group to experience the region and wines with exclusivity, detail and genuine hospitality.

On a personal note, I was super impressed with your professionalism and leadership.  You’re a rock star!  It was easy to see the genuine warmth we were all welcomed with came from your efforts creating lasting relationships with our hosts.  Keep it rolling, you’re onto something truly special!

The Spanish Wine Trip was promoted as “the wine trip of a lifetime”. That was not an exaggeration. It was an amazing experience, especially for me, someone not within the wine industry. I wanted to go because I know quite a bit about French and Italian wine but nothing about Spanish wines. And now I know what wines I like. I also know where I would like to return.

Since the vast majority of our tour participants consisted of wine sellers, I learned not only from them but also at the vineyards and bodegas.

I think if Romo didn’t have the relationships with and the respect he has earned from the makers, we could never have been treated so well. Or gone to some of the very intimate places. It was very elegant, convivial and a wonderful way to learn! I’d recommend going on one of Romo’s trips.
