Best Wine Tasting tour in Rioja

This full day tour combines wine tastings in the world renowned Rioja area and lunch in a local restaurant. 2 cellars to be discovered on the Tour!

The tour is designed to guide you into one of the oldest traditional "cave-cellars" in the area, dug 7-8 meters deep under the houses. Unique experience not to be missed!!

As well as it includes visiting and tasting wines in one of the most famous local wineries. Tour along "Marques del Riscal" Winery cellar/hotel (it was designed by Frank Gehry, the architect who designed the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao)!

Walking tour along the medieval streets of Laguardia, one of the most charming towns in La Rioja area before discovering local home made food. Lunch in an off the track local restaurant, not touristy!

A Recent Review of this tour

A truly wonderful guide. Spent two days with Iker and he really introduced us to the region and made us feel like family. If I have the chance to come back to San Sebastian I will be looking for him again. Very professional.
