We had a wonderful time touring the spectacular Rioja region with Telmo. He was an excellent and gracious host with extensive knowledge of the region, its wineries and its wines. Our tastings were extremely satisfying and the grilled lamb chop lunch was delightful. We would not hesitate to recommend the tour with him to anyone with a keen interest in Rioja, its culture and history and its world class wines.
