La Rioja means to feel and experience different styles of art and culture, influenced by Celtiberians (the people from ancient Hispania), the Visigoths (one of two main branches of the Goths), Romans, Arabs and of course the Christian civilisation. The atmosphere of La Rioja is that of a mixture, highly spiced with sharply contrasting traditions. All cultures of the Iberian Peninsula have their presence in La Rioja.

During this exceptional wine tour we will taste some of the most sophisticated and celebrated Rioja wines and discover other superb wines, visit wine makers who are world-wide famous for their quality, small wineries located in places of great historical and cultural value, as well as stunning cellars, some of them existing for over 100 years.
We will enjoy wine tasting in gorgeous surroundings as we travel through arcade streets to admire the stone mansions of amazing medieval towns, very important for the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. An excursion to a charming mountainous village, home of the crown prince of contemporary cuisine in Spain is planned, as well as a stop at a 10th century monastery of Mankind Heritage, where Castilian language was born.

Our selected wine hotel will make your gourmet experience even more unique. In Laguardia, located in the area of La Rioja Alavesa, which is a completely preserved medieval village full of subterranean cellars under its stone streets, we will stay at a lovely 4 star hotel with spectacular views of the vineyards. A hotel which transmits an intimate and quiet environment perfect for you to relax.

This tour will offer you the opportunity to witness for yourself the old tradition of winemaking working hand in hand with the very latest technology, to learn the how, what and when of grape cultivation and harvesting, to walk among barrels and smell the wine as it ages, to enrich or update your knowledge during the tutored tasting sessions from top wine producers. Discover the flavours of the superb La Rioja regional cuisine enjoying fabulous gourmet meals. Discover your senses.
