If you don't see the time to enjoy your passion again and you feel lost like the people of Israel in their wilderness wanderings, today you will we bring you the 10 commandments of the enotourist.

1. You will travel without haste

Enotourism is a form of travel that we could understand as "slow tourism". We must leave our usual pace of life to one side and give ourselves over to enjoying the experiences offered by the world of wine with peace of mind. Organising our trip at a leisurely pace will allow us to reduce our stress levels to zero, recharge our energy and enjoy the experience to the full. The environment of the vineyards and wineries will provide us with a point of calm. We must be open to appreciate.

 2. Plan your trip with the time of year in mind

When planning a trip that includes a visit to vineyards, wineries or towns with an important wine-growing activity, we must take into account the time of the year in which we are going to visit these places.

The production of wine is closely linked to the different periods of the yearand depending on when we go we can experience different events: cultivation, the grape harvest, festivals related to these activities, gastronomic fairs, etc. It is worth doing a little research beforehand on the area where we are going to go and find out what is going on at any given time.
