Important things to enjoy a wine tour in Rioja

If you are a wine enthusiast your wine tour in Rioja will most probably not be the first, nor the last you enjoy. There are some things unique to Rioja which are worth mentioning to ensure you will make the most out of your experience.

1- Grape varietals. Rioja is a region where mainly red wine is produced. Tempranillo is the grape mostly planted and your guide will explain many things about Tempranillo and why it became so popular in Rioja. But there are other grapes in Rioja like Graciano or Grenache. White wines are also produced. Macabeo or Viura are the grapes used. Please note that some wineries also produce sparkingly wine, though this is rarer.

2- Regulation. As you could expect in such an important Old World wine region, regulation is everywhere. Sometimes for good, sometimes for not so good, most of the time misunderstood, understanding the basics of these regulations help to understand Rioja.

3- Three regions into one. Rioja wine region is part of three administrative regions in Spain: Rioja, Basque Country (Alava), and Navarra

4- Landscapes, the Ebro river, and vineyards. The Ebro river shapes the landscape is an important part of Rioja and you will be able to enjoy this during your Rioja wine tour.

We believe a wine tour in Rioja should be conducted by a knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate local guide. The private wine tours in this list all include a fantastic selection of wineries, excellent tastings and are conducted by top professional wine guides.
