ExperienciasyMas, a Spanish publishing house that focuses on creating awareness and circulating information on luxury and charming hotels across the globe, has announced winners of the 2009 Wine Hotel Awards, given to the ten best wine hotels and wine cellar hotels in southern Europe.

Hotels nestled among vineyards, castles in viticultural areas, wine tastings and visits to cellars, winetheraphy treatments or a first class gastronomical offer were taken into account when nominating and awarding these hotels. Winners are, of course, located in stunning, unrivalled landscapes.

Among the hotels awarded in this 2009 edition we can find four hotels located in Spain, three in France, two in Portugal and one in Italy. Those situated in the Spanish peninsula include Marques de Riscal in the Rioja region, the Peralada Wine Spa & Golf  Hotel in the Catalan region of Emporda, the Hacienda Zorita in the thriving Arribes del Duero area and the Read’s Hotel in Mallorca.
