  • The international prestige of Spanish gastronomy continues to grow day by day. On your holiday in Spain you will enjoy healthy, imaginative and, above all, highly varied cuisine. Part of the secret lies in the ingredients; top-quality products that you can take home as souvenirs too. And what is more, with the best guarantee: the Designation of Origin certification. Discover what they are and where to find them with us!

    To make sure you get the right thing, go for quality. In Spain, the Designation of Origin (D.O.) seal will guarantee this. This mark ensures that the foodstuff in question is of excellent quality, produced in a specific geographical area, with its own unique characteristics. Designations of Origin are protected by European Union directives, and include Spanish gastronomy’s most famous products.

    There are over 250 foods and drinks protected by this quality control system. Getting to know them will also give you the chance to visit different regions of Spain. There is a wide variety of products: from cheeses, vegetables, pulses and cured meats, to drinks, sweets and spices. Nevertheless, there is one group that stands out especially – wines. Who hasn’t heard of wines from La Rioja or cava sparkling wine? Alongside them there are other D.O. wines of extraordinary quality that you could sample in a very enjoyable way: by going on one of our tailored wine routes.

    The red wines of Rioja, the sherries of Jerez and the crisp Cava of Catalonia are the best known Spanish wines yet it is the lesser known reds of Ribera del Duero that have made the greatest impact at international wine fairs.

    Wine in Spain is not only culture and history, but also tradition and geography.

    Being the country with more extension of vineyards in the world and also the third largest producer of wine, one can hardly travel without finding on their way a large expanse of vines, ancient cellars, regions with an economy linked to the vine since ancient times.

    Tapas, traditional desserts, mouth-watering dishes, the Mediterranean diet… Travelling in Spain means enjoying a wide range of delights when it is time to sit down to eat. The Mediterranean diet was awarded the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity designation in 2010 because it is much more than just healthy food, and because it has been consolidated as culture that promotes social interaction, respect for the land and biodiversity, and preservation of traditional and craft activities connected with agriculture and fishing.

    Cuisine as an artistic creation to delight the senses –this is the way gastronomy is seen in Spain. A range of five-star culinary attractions offering a world of tastes, presentation, aroma, textures, colour… Dishes by chefs such as Adrià, Arzak, Berasategui, Ruscalleda, Santamaría, Subijana and Roca have placed Spain at the forefront of international haute cuisine.

    The new Spanish chefs are artists in the kitchen, as is amply borne out by their widespread international renown. Ferran Adrià’s “El Bulli” was in its day voted up to five times the best restaurant in the world by the prestigious Restaurant magazine, and “El Celler de Can Roca” in Girona was awarded this distinction in 2013. It is currently regarded as being the second best restaurant in the world. What’s more, another two are in the top ten: “Mugaritz” –in sixth place– and “Arzak” –eighth–, both in San Sebastián (Basque Country); and as many as eight restaurants have the maximum rating awarded by the influential Michelin Guide.
