Only the best this fabulous wine region has to offer, from the top wineries to the best local eats
Being my mother's side of the family from this area, I will show you MY Rioja, one I'm sure you'll absolutely fall in love with!
Whether you're coming from Bilbao, San Sebastian, Madrid or pretty much anywhere else, you'll get to experience La Rioja like very few people have a chance to. From visiting one (or more) of the top, private wineries and meeting the winemaker directly, to enjoying a delicious meal paired with fantastic wines at one of the region's best restaurants, a local's well-kept secret, and learning about this part of Spain's history.
Although this is initially a day trip, it can be customized to meet your needs and turned into a multi-day tour with a chance to experience not only some of the best wineries and local eats as previously mentioned but also the history and sights this amazing region has to offer. Please contact me and let me know what your interests and time availability are, I'm sure we'll be able to put something together that will exceed your expectations.
I will pick you up from the port, hotel or airport according to your travel plans and we'll head to La Rioja in a private, air conditioned vehicle. We will visit one of the top wineries in the region where we will be expected for a private, insider's tour. You will get to visit the vineyards (weather permitting), learn about the winemaking whole process, visit every corner of the winery and taste their fantastic wines in the company of the winemakers themselves. After this we'll head to a local, gourmet's paradise to enjoy some delicious food paired with more wine of course and (time permitting), visit one of the beautiful local towns before heading back to the starting point so you can continue your journey with a bag full of wonderful memories and stories to share.
