- With the aim of continuing to create an international benchmark wine tourism destination, the wineries of the District Station are launching a joint tourist offer from this summer onwards.
- Guided tours of the District Station and a passport to taste its wines throughout the year will be added to the wine tourism experiences of the associated wineries.
The District Station Association is taking another step forward in its aim to promote the historic enclave where the largest concentration of century-old wineries in the world is located and, starting in June, is launching its joint wine tourism project called District Station Tours. Guided tours consisting of two routes that will bring visitors closer to the history of this particular neighbourhood, going into the heart of three of its wineries, getting to know the most emblematic corners and tasting its wines accompanied by a selection of tapas.
The tours, which will begin on 22 June, will take place on Thursdays and Fridays from 10:30 in the morning, offering an attractive stroll through the streets of the District Station during a guided tour lasting just over three hours. These visits are offered for small groups of around twelve people, with the aim of providing an educational and exciting experience that is at the same time personalised and meticulously detailed.
The wine tourism offer is completed by the District Station Passport. A convenient way of touring the six Wine Bar areas of its wineries, enjoying a premium wine and a selected tapa using a passport as a means of payment. This passport is valid for the whole year, and can be enjoyed at different times from the moment it is purchased.
The guided tours cost €60, the passport €42 and can be booked in advance through its website www.barrioestacion.com which, as a novelty, incorporates a booking engine to manage its wine tourism experiences and events.
This is yet another example of the commitment and collaboration of the wineries in the District Station to create a destination, adding their diversity to a common goal: to turn the Barrio de la Estación into a quality wine tourism brand of international reference.
