"Thanks again for the quick response when we first contacted you. The tour was perfect for us. Anyone visiting the Rioja region should enjoy these amazing wineries. Some of the buildings are magnificent from the outside. We learnt a lot about the production of wine and had delivered home a good number of bottles

This tour was part of our honeymoon in Spain. We loved the great panoramic view of the vinyards and wineries. The modern buildings were building stunning and beautiful, but we both preferred the traditional wineries and their wines. We strongly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Rioja.
