I just wanted to let you know that everything went perfect on this trip! You gave us all the information we needed and we were welcomed with open arms at both the wineries as the restaurant. And as the cherry on top of the cake, Haro is indeed a very nice town for strolling and tasting some more wine.

We are now back from our great but too short holiday in Spain. I just wanted to say that the self-guided tour was wonderful and to thank you as all the organisation worked well. The first winery tour was outstanding and so interesting to see a large and traditional family winery and then the contrast with the second winery as a smaller winery was a good thought and was a great tour as well. I would recommend both to friends. We loved Haro and it was good to be able to walk around after lunch. The food at the restaurant was also wonderful. Thanks again. We look forward to visiting other winery areas in Spain when we go back - soon I hope!

I just wanted to say thank you for arranging a wonderful day of wine tasting. I really enjoyed the bodegas and their different styles. Yes, I agree with you that the wines are very good. I enjoyed them very much and must say that you couldn't have picked better wineries for me to visit. I like both modern and traditional styles but tend to prefer smaller bodegas. The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. I also enjoyed my lunch and the stroll around the town before heading back to Bilbao. The day was definitely worth getting up early for.
