Cristina was born in Burgos and now she lives between Madrid and Miranda de Ebro, ten minutes from Haro, the wine capital of Rioja. Her grandfather and uncle were wine traders in Ribera del Duero and in her family they always buy the wine directly from the winery. So wine and wine regions is something she knows very well. She spend seven years in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, and she loves to travel. After coming back to Spain she decided to create M21617.
"We have always thought that travel is much more enjoyable when you have friends in the places you visit. We also love when our friends visit our country, so we can show them around and share our love for Spain its wines and food with them. This is why we invite you to join us in a wonderful vacation to enjoy Spain and Spanish wine and cuisine, with great meals, winery visits, and wine tasting. This in Spanish is called rutas de vino (wine routes), or wine tour. But Spain has more good things to offer, so in this tour we will also introduce you to everything we love about our country, its food, its culture and history, its art, and its people. We hope you'll love as much as we do!" The Alonso Family
