Short Winter Trip!

I am still searching for a way to get a trip to Europe in as a honeymoon. Due to some changing circumstances with our jobs, the only time we may be able to make this happen would be over Christmas vacation. I am thinking possibly 2 locations in Italy or 2 in Spain. We want to see great architecture and eat great food! If we were to go to Venice, is there a good spot that we could take a 2 or 3 day side trip too to do some wine tasting? Or if we were to start in Barcelona, where would you suggest going from there?

From Venice you are close to two very important wine destinations. One is the area around Verona in the Veneto. The other is the area around Cormons in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia. Personally I would find it an incredibly romantic to go to La Subida and stay for a few days over Christmas. The way I would do it is to go from Venice to Udine by train and rent a car there.

I meant to give you this link too. You can see you can rent little houses at La Subida. They have fireplaces and you can eat at the restaurant. They have fabulous food and the wine from that region is unique and outstanding. There are lovely towns around there to visit as well.
