An excellent wine region with a private guide
I invite you to discover the taste of Rioja in a private tour. We will drive through the landscape of an outstanding beauty, to the land where lovely towns scattered along the wine-growing plantations. We will visit one of the most iconic towns with a large wine making tradition. This town is situated on top of a hill, guarding the valleys. It preserves its medieval atmosphere on its streets and surroundings. The hill hides inside a maze of subterranean passages used for wine aging since immemorial times.
You will be visiting two wineries where one can learn about different types of Rioja wines and their elaboration. You will be surprised with the variety of wineries and the difference between wines, made even in the same town!
You will go to Laguardia town.

We saw Emma four days in a row in Basque Country and couldn't have asked for a better guide or a better introduction to this beautiful part of Spain. She constantly seemed to be bending over backwards to please and to provide surprises whether it was Eduardo Chillida's Wind Comb sculptures or a centuries-old wine cellar in Laguardia. By the time she and her husband (our driver) let us off at the Bilbao Airport, we thought we had not only gotten history lessons and gastronomy insights, but new friends.
