Unusual suspects

Our secret hidden gems are only revealed to authentic wine enthusiasts who wish to go one step further into Rioja styles

These are usually “one-man show” characters, very talented winegrowers and winemakers that make top-notch garage wines. Sometimes you just come across extremely gifted people throughout your career. We have been blessed to meet them and feel very grateful to introduce them to genuine wine enthusiasts.

We will visit artisanal, non-touristy, more remotely located wineries. Experience first hand the wonderful hand-crafted wines on this intimate tour that unveils the lesser-known face of Rioja wines and winemakers.

The tour includes:

  • Hotel pick up and drop off in Logroño, Laguardia, Elciego, Villabuena and Haro
  • Private guided tour at three off-the-beaten-track wineries
  • Tasting session of 3-4 signature wines at each one
  • Traditional lunch served at a private undergound cellar carved out of bedrock
  • 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 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.
