Discover the Basque wines and the charming medieval villages of Laguardia

This tour will feature the Basque wine region called Rioja Alavesa. This area is home to the best wineries of Rioja. Along the way, find not only wine, but discover amazing historical places. The St. James route passes through the area with Medieval villages where there will be a few stops. Also along the way, experience art, culture, and the best that Spain has to offer.


We leave from San Sebastian early in the morning. We will drive through the highway crossing the Basque mountains. The first visit takes place at 10:30am. This visit is approximately 90 minutes long, including the tasting. You will have time for a second tasting in another winerie around Haro village. After that, you'll go to Laguardia Medieval village. Here, learn part of the history of La Rioja while you have time to eat some pintxos and drink some wines. Finally, we will visit a third winery in the area. This tour is approximately nine hours long.
It is possible to do just the tastings more than visit and tasting. In this case we will go faster and we will stop in more wineries.
