Sophie is way beyond a tourist guide. She was able to make a private tour for 7 people, from different Countries and expectations. Excellent options, very well organized. Sophie is very professional, but besides that you can tell how much she loves what she does. I will recommend without a doubt working with her in the future.

Now we are back home from Sitges, unfortunately, we could be there much longer. What a wonderful trip! I want to say a big thank you for organising everything so perfectly. Sophie was an outstanding guide and tour manager. Knowledgable, diplomatic, funny and easy going. We have learned to love a guide, all about spanish wine but also about food, gastronomy and Spanish (French;)) culture. The day together in Amandas home was fantastic, just look at her cooking while drinking delicious wine, and after, taste the best Paella ever. Thank you again Sophie, you made our weekend. We will be glad to come back on another tour in the future!

Our day tour of the Priorat Wine Region with Sophie from Niso Wine Tours was simply incredible! Sophie picked us up from the front door of the apartment we were renting in Sitges and drove us through the rocky hills and lush valleys of the region to reach Gratallops. Other than wearing comfortable clothes and shoes for walking, we did not need to bring or pack anything else! Sophie had water and snacks for the one hour ride.

We begin our first tour and tasting with the owner of Costers del Siurana winery around 11:30 AM. Carles shared his depth of knowledge about wine and stories of the region as we toured his amazing facility. Our tasting was superb - so much so that we purchased several bottles of our favorites. Plus, the process of buying the wine and having it shipped home was so simple and fast. We were even asked for an ideal shipping date to be sure the wines did not arrive back in the US before we did!

Then Sophie took us for lunch at an exquisite small neighborhood restaurant in nearby Porrera called La Cooperativa. Each course was better than the next (plus more wine!) and our meal ended with a unforgettable fruit, pastry and chocolate puff! Yum!

Then back in the car and off on a short but magnificent drive to the other side of Porrera for our second tour of Clos Dominic. Dominic, the owner, walked us personally through the vineyard and explained so many of the fascinating aspects of growing the grapes and working the land in harmony with nature. Our tour of the wine cellar and barrels (in the basement of their home!) was amazing. Not only did we taste several of their wonderful wines, but we also tasted their award-winning olive oil! We left with bottles of both!

Once our tour was finished, we walked around the town square and chatted with a few of the local villagers who Sophie knew. Then we stopped at a few scenic overlooks nearby before heading back to Sitges. On the drive back both my husband and I feel asleep in the car like kids!

It was an unforgettable day and we whole-heartedly recommend Sophie and Niso Wine Tours if you are planning to visit the Barcelona area. You do not need to be super-knowledgeable about wine. This tour is great for anyone who enjoys drinking wine and is interested in learning more about the region and it's culture!

A friend had recommended Niso Wine Tours, and we had a wonderful time with our guide Sophie ! We emailed back and forth about our itinerary, and she was very patient with the many changes that I had to make. She picked us up at our hotel in Barcelona , and drove us to Elciego , incorporating two vineyard tours on our way and then dropping us at the Marques de Riscal hotel for the evening . Sophie arranged a diverse itinerary of private vineyard visits for us, and we saw both the newest , and also the oldest, vineyard in the area. It was so interesting to see the different approaches each vineyard took. We had a very busy day and a half and saw 6 vineyards in the Elciego region.
Each vineyard had a generous tasting at the conclusion of the tour.
She also selected very nice restaurants for lunch and also for dinner We had such a good time being with Sophie, and she quickly became a friend.
NIso Wine tours arrange tours for different regions in Spain and I would look forward to using them in the future to explore another region .

Niso Wine Tours made all the arrangements for four of us to spend 2 weeks touring wineries in 4 of Spain's best wine regions. They arranged transportation, lodging, winery visits, and guides in each region. The execution was flawless. We visited 22 wineries, and we were welcomed with open arms everywhere we went. Many of our visits were private tours. Our guides, including Sophie who is one of Niso's owners ant the planner of our tour, we're knowledgeable and personable. A bonus that we didn't expect, was their choice of restaurants along the way, where we had some great food to go with the wine we had tasted.
