We are a very dynamic company based in Spain, which specialises in designing wine experiences near Madrid and all around the Spanish wine regions.
We have 10 years of “savoir-faire” and the passion for delivering genuine and memorable experiences when it comes to wine.
And because wine does not come alone; it talks about a specific terroir, a certain history and enhances local food, our tours usually mix wine, gastronomy and heritage!
Colorful Wines puts together the best bits of the Spanish wine culture, figuring out the most original ways to translate the lively and vibrant Spanish way of living through its wines!
We organise all kinds of wine experiences offering you the possibility to spend several hours, invest a day or several ones to discover hidden wine gems of Spain, according to your preferences and your availability.
We offer the expertise: our founder, Jimena, has been travelling to world renowned wine regions for more than 15 years. This has given her the opportunity to learn, compare and distinguish the best wine tourism practices around the globe.
We also offer bespoke and original experiences: passion for wine is our best ingredient to create genuine, original and memorable experiences which will allow you to discover the marvellous wine world of Spain.
Our wine tours are fun! We believe in the power of enjoyable and shareable experiences: you will learn interesting facts while having fun – best wine experiences are linked to pleasurable moments. This is also why wine always taste better in its own environment, therefore, at the vineyard itself!

Hi there and thank you for visiting Colorful Wines!
I am in love with wine and wine has been my passion since I was living in France, between 1996 and 2004.
It all started when I began travelling around France, visiting diverse regions and discovering different wines in each of them; tasting awesome gastronomy specialities and products deliciously paired with each of the wines. There was kind of a tacit rule, matching dishes and wines from the same terroir and after a while –when doing my wine studies at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) in London– I realised that this was indeed one of the basic principles when pairing food and wine.
I am Venezuelan with Lebanese, Spanish and Italian roots, but also with a diverse Latin American background since my father is Colombian and my grandmother was from Ecuador, so since I was very little I got used to multiculturalism as well as my palate which loves mixing very distinctive flavours when sitting at the table. I have been very lucky since my mum is a superb cooker as well as my aunties as the Lebanese tradition dictates… I became a foodie lover and afterwards the wine came naturally of course!
Over the years I have been travelling to visit wine regions and vineyards in several different countries, including Spain, Italy, France, Canada, England and South-Africa. I am passionate about wine experiences, in particular the ones associated to wine tourism and how they are sense-enhancing and always remembered with excitement when surpassing our expectations!
More recently I lived in London for 5 years where I focused on doing relevant wine tourism research for my Masters’ dissertation, gained my Advanced Certificate at the WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) with Distinction and also obtained a relevant work experience in wine.
In 2016 I moved to Spain to found Colorful Wines in order to share my wine passion and bring all my expertise doing what I love most! And what could be a better place to do so than sunny and vibrant Spain where you can experience awesome hidden wine travel gems?
See you around beautiful Spanish vineyards!
