Guided visit to a centuries old, family-owned winery. Walking through the vaulted underground corridors and staircases, you find yourself traveling back in time.

Reviews

"I wanted to thank you for your help in planning the tour of La Rioja. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life. Not only because of the beautiful landscapes and the selection of wineries; for the fun, helpful and informed of all about wine that was our tour guide. Thanks to Luis and his creativity we were sure to enjoy all the best of La Rioja in a day; I was able to take excellent photos, enjoy a variety of wines and winery styles and most of all enjoy a day that surpassed all my expectations. (It took more than 6 months planning this vacation so the truth is that they were high) I also want to mention that each representative of the wineries and the restaurant treated us like family. They were friendly and entertaining. Lunch at the castle was delicious... super delicious! As you can see I cannot stop saying good things about the tour."

Yadira (Miami, USA)
My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Rioja wine tour. We did the Classics tour. Yara gave us an amazing private tour. I would highly recommend them. Yara was very knowledgeable and provided us a lot of education about Rioja wines and we learned a lot about our individual taste in wine as well. Inma was able to cater our private tour to our preferred tastes.

This private tour was the highlight of our trip to Spain. Diego was amazing and we felt like family. We´ve enjoyed many wine tours in Napa, Italy or France… Yours was simply amazing. We would not change anything. Thank you so much for such an amazing day. Gracias!
