Catavino prides itself on designing highly customized experiences throughout Spain and Portugal. Since 2005, we’ve lived and breathed the Peninsula, seeking out engaging and knowledgable guides, exceptional lodging, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and of course, outstanding food and wine! What makes us different is our unmatched custom trip planning from experts who not only adore the art of crafting a personalized trip, but who challenge themselves to ensure that you want to come back!

As of May 2020 Catavino is officially recognized as “Clean and Safe” by Portugal Tourism. 

Since 2005, Ryan and Gabriella Opaz have shared both their personal and heavily researched stories about Spain and Portugal. Ranging from jaw-dropping culinary experiences to simple off-the-beaten-track adventure stories in tiny Spanish towns, there’s one element that has always remained consistent at Catavino’s core outstanding food, wine and culture stories.
