Winemaker for a day in Rioja


Tour description

This enchanting and fun activity will show you what it´s like to be a wine expert for a day. Perfect for children and small groups of adults. You will not only learn by watching the activity leader, but you will also get to try the activities yourself- feel like a real enologist and pretend you are a Riojan winemaker! 


Walk amongst the vineyards and learn what the most important things are to get a good crop. Find out what steps are needed along the way (pruning, green pruning, cutting the foliage, ripening control, the grape harvest…). Enjoy a traditional Riojan snack. Carry out little experiments inside the underground bodega in order to understand how the wine ferments. Learn about the aging process by trying some barrelled wine and understand the differences between young (crianza) and old wine, plus much more.

This activity includes

Winery visit and wine tasting

- Guided tour of the vineyard - Winemaker activities - Riojan snack - Visit to a small family-owned traditional winery - See the underground wine cellar and wine tasting

Winery pass- Itinerary

The local Riojan team will select two fantastic wineries in Rioja, family-owned and with excellent wines.

The idea of this winery pass is to ensure the 2 wineries included bring a different, special experience. The wineries will be very different from one another and are located at some of the most iconic areas in Rioja. Get ready for some amazing pictures!
