1. From San Sebastian: Rioja Uncorked - Private Wineries Trip
Discover the ‘blessed wine’ from the most famous wine region in Spain, Rioja, on a day tour from San Sebastian. Visit four wineries that will showcase the radically different ways of making wine: from Tempranillos aged in barrels hidden in humid caves to young and daring wines. Begin the tour from San Sebastian and travel through 3 of Northern Spain's regions: the green and mountainous forests of Euskadi, the flat dry fields of Castile, and the large expanses of vineyards on the gentle hills of Rioja. Discover family-run bodegas that take risks with young and daring wines. Explore centuries-old wineries, devoted to traditional winemaking processes. Taste up 10 different varieties, paired with samples of local gastronomic products. Visit the medieval town of Laguardia, known for its baroque churches, alongside the latest “cathedrals “ of wine, such as the Marqués de Riscal wineries by Frank O. Gehry (which uses the same titanium as the Guggenheim Bilbao museum), and the Bodegas Ysios by Santiago Calatrava.
