The province of Granada offers a broad range of attractions, including its namesake city and a spectacular wine-growing region. This excursion beginswith a scenic drivethrough Granada to the quaint town of Benalúa de Guadix at an elevation of 2,600 feet above sea level.

You'll stop for a wine tasting at the Pago de Almaraes Cellars, which boasts vines that are exposed to great temperature fluctuations between day and night. The dry continental climate favors the production of different varieties of grapes such as Cabernet, Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as traditional Spanish varietals. The winery is the most technologically advanced in Andalucia, and its wines are comparable to the best Spanish Riojas and Ribera del Duero wines. This award-winning winery produces around 500,000 bottles each vintage, which are stored in caves to ensure a stable temperature. The almost Gaudí-esque architecture will surprise you.

After visiting the cellars, re-board your coach for the drive to the City of Guadix. A walk around the Old Town is a chance to learn about the cathedral and the area's unusual house-caves. One of the oldest settlements on the Iberian Peninsula, Guadiz boasts a variety of architectural monuments, including the Alcazaba and the Cathedral, one of only three cathedrals in Spain that reflects a Renaissance influence in its foyer.

Please note: Travel time to Guadix is approximately 1½ hours each way.
