Full description

Take a tour of 3 boutique family wineries in La Rioja, each carefully selected. Learn from wine experts about the different aging processes and snack on local cheeses and meats before enjoying a traditional Rioja lunch. Then take a guided walk in the medieval city of LaGuardia.

Enjoy high-quality wines that have received 90+ points from renowned wine experts James Suckling and Tim Atkin. Listen to various wine experts and producers explain the different aging processes of Rioja including the Cosecha (1 year), Crianza (minimum 2 years of aging), Reserva (minimum 3 years of aging), and Gran Reservas (minimum 5 years of aging). Learn how to make better wine purchases in the future, whether in restaurants or for your personal collection. Enjoy plentiful tastings, savoring every sip until the end of your visit without becoming tipsy. Snack on a variety of local cheeses, cold meats, nuts, and other traditional products as appetizers, but in just the right amount so as not to ruin your appetite for the delicious lunch that awaits. After the tasting, tuck into a traditional Riojano lunch with plates like stewed potatoes with chorizo, lamb chops, and a traditional goxua dessert. Your private tour will end with a guided walk in the medieval city of LaGuardia.

Sara was a delightful guide. She was very knowledgeable, very attentive and great fun. We couldn't have asked for more! She took us round three of the best local family-run wineries in La Rioja which we could never have found on our own. We learnt so much. Sara rounded off the day with a delicious lunch in Lagrono. Definitely a day to remember!
