    What to Expect
    It is said that the wine supply in Rioja Alta is one of the richest of Spain and probably the world.

    Each town has its own wine tourism offer, from the smallest village to the capital of La Rioja Alta, Haro, with its famous Station Quarter.

    In the late 19th century, wineries were built close to the railway station. Today they are among the great names of Rioja wine, universal references. Walking through this area is like walking through history.

    We will visit one of the most historical wineries in Rioja, and you will realize how they have evolved architecturally, artistically and, of course, in their winemaking, learning the history of winemaking and wine traditions to become the modern winemakers we see today; finally, we will taste some of the most classic Rioja wines.

    After that, we will go to Rioja Alavesa, situated between the Ebro River and the Cantabria Mountains, giving this region a privileged microclimate for vine cultivation.

    The most amazing thing is the mix between the traditional production processes with new technologies; you will be able to sample everything from vintages aged in medieval caves through wines produced in the most avant-garde installations. We will definitely visit one of these wineries, a building that combines functionality and aesthetics, designed by the world's most prestigious architects where wine is the true protagonist, it is a must-see!

    Then, we will have lunch in Laguardia, a beautifully kept 10th century fortified town, that still conserves all the charm of old medieval village set between vineyards, enjoying their delicious and traditional food pairing with wine.

    Finally, we will enjoy a professional tasting to compare the different styles of the wineries we have visited during the day: Traditional Wines versus Modern Wines.

    We had a very enjoyable day with Rebeca touring 3 Bodegas including lunch in LaGuardia. The 3 Bodegas visited were Bohedal, Lecea and Marques de Riscal. All were very different in their own way from producing wine in caves, to a small independent Bodega to a large producer. All
