Rioja Uncovered

Discover one of the world’s most famous wine regions guided by our team of experts, whose combined enthusiasm for Rioja is unparalleled. On this day-pass to the secrets of winemaking we will chauffeur you around this beautiful region, visiting two contrasting wineries along the way, each with their own style, history and architecture. The daytrip also includes a stroll through the lovely medieval village of Laguardia and lunch at one of its most local restaurants, tried and tested by our expert guides.

Tasting and teaching is the name of this package. Starting with the soil and moving from barrel to glass, you are taken step-by-step through the process of winemaking. Test your tastebuds, enrich your wine knowledge, and develop your ‘nose’ for wine. No questions are too silly and no wine thought too random for our passionate guides, devoted to celebrating the Rioja region.
