From the sea to wineries 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!
