Meet the winemakers

A tour for wine lovers who want to gain an in-depth knowledge of the wine and a feel for the traditions behind it

Meet three generations of a winemaking family and ask them everything you always wanted to know about wines over a glass of wine, some chorizo and country bread.

This is an exclusive tour of Rioja wine country: taste some superb wines at cellars not normally open to the public. Wander through the vineyards at your leisure with the winemakers, learning about viticulture and the wine making process.

First we will visit their vineyards and see the vines being worked. We will finish with an extensive tasting of the fruits of those labours at the family-run winery . The father and the son who work the vines will be happy to share their knowledge and passion for their wine.

These tours have been designed for people who want to gain an in-depth knowledge of the wine they are tasting and a feel for the traditions behind it.

The tour includes:

  • Hotel pick up and drop off in Logroño, Laguardia, Elciego, Villabuena and Haro
  • Private guided tour at the vineyards and explanation of grape varieties, soils and vine labours
  • Guided tour at the winery and extensive tasting session of their wine porfolio
  • Traditional Riojan lunch of baby lamb chops grilled over vine cuttings
  • Private guide services with an English speaking guide
  • Chauffered transportation in La Rioja

Hotel pick up and drop off in San Sebastian and Bilbao can be arranged at an additional cost. Kindly ask us for a transfer quotation at inma@riojawinetrips.com

Other visitors’ opinion on the Meet the Winemakers tour

If you want an authentic taste of both the wine and the region, then I thoroughly recommend taking a Rioja Wine Trip.

Mel is as friendly as he is knowledgeable and our day in the hills and vineyards of the towns and villages was both a learning experience and huge amounts of fun. A relaxed but thorough itinerary took in vineyards and boutique wineries, a picnic in the caves and many opportunities to take in the views and atmosphere.

An amiable host, Mel made the whole day a blast and Inma makes a mean Spanish omelette. It’s the complete package for wine experts and those, like my partner and I, who just want to learn a little and enjoy the authentic taste of Rioja. Thoroughly recommended.

Other visitors’ opinion on the Unusual suspects tour

Exceptional Rioja wine tour

Inma & Mel are both extremely knowledgeable, fun and have excellent relationships with many local wine producers.

We visited a variety of family run and innovative winemakers who produce a fantastic range of high quality wines, many of which are different to those we come across in the U.K. We had a great lunch in a private wine cave surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

Inma and Mel also went out of their way for me to visit a particular winery I like as well. All of the hardworking winemakers were really fun and engaging and I came home with some fantastic wines and fond memories.
