Overview Rioja Day Trip
La Rioja turns out what most people have in mind when they think of Spanish wines. Enjoy a great day among vineyards around three of the best wineries in an exclusive private-guided visit. The region produces wine since ancient Roman times. Taste terrific wines and discover small charming villages from Middle Ages. It’s no accident that when phylloxera hit Bordeaux in the late 19th century, French winemakers chose Rioja as a location to make wines for the French market.
Not only will you have a chance to access remarkable wineries but also you will try astonishing new style wines that express a sense of place. Winemakers are making wines that reveal the terroir of the region, village, estate, and, increasingly, the vineyard. A pairing lunch is foreseen at one of the bodegas or somewhere in a nearby small town.
