Description

Rioja Wine Tasting

Take a trip to one of the most famous wine regions in the world, without leaving San Sebastián.  Our Rioja Wine Tasting is an experience that will take you on a journey between bodegas, and through time.  Sip traditional varieties, like Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura, you may know, but our expert sommelier will fill you in with little-known wine gossip and teach you how to tell the difference between these wines.

The six wines you will try are from the most famous sub zones of the Rioja, Rioja Alta and the Rioja Alavesa. Our sommelier has selected them carefully to represent not only tradition, but also to showcase the modern wines coming from the area and even white Rioja wines.  Experience our relaxed tasting, a fabulous wine learning experience among new friends.
