FOODIE HEAVEN

Characteristics of this Rioja wine tour

DESCRIPTION

Foodie Heaven is a flavourful gastronomic journey for foodies and gourmets through Riojan fine artisan produce.

La Rioja is home to a huge variety of artisan food producers, from fresh organic fruit and vegetables, to delicious lamb, fantastic olive oil, cured meats and small-scale cheese. Discover the full range of traditional ingredients and produce at their source.

If you like to explore the local cuisine when you travel, this is your chance to indulge into our culinary delights: from artisan air-dried and slow-cured chorizo, salchichon and ham to award winning cheese, mouth-watering baby lamb chops and extraordinary extra-virgin olive oil. The traditional farming system and procedures ensure top quality produce.

This is a fantastic opportunity to pamper a foodie! We will visit an extra-virgin olive oil producer, a cured meats artisan producer and then enjoy a fantastic rustic dining at their private garden.

Riojans really believe that food is the key to the soul. If you value top-quality local produce, home-made food and private dining experiences in our favourite hide-aways, this is definitely the experience you are looking for.

Food is the key to the soul and we have all the keys!

Other visitors opinion on the Foodie Heaven tour

We were picked up at our hotel at 10am by Inma our wine guide for day and were then given a brief run through our itinerary. The tour consisted of visiting three different boutique wineries and and a visit to an artisanal chorizo maker where we had lunch. What separates this tour from any other is the personal relationship our guide Inma had with all the wineries we visited. You really got an intimate feel for what the winemakers were trying to convey through their products and real ” behind the scene” look. Inma had extensive knowledge on all aspects of the Rioja region and was very engaging.

The lunch at with the artisanal sausage maker was another highlight. She singlehandedly makes all her sausages herself from her own home- we sat in her back garden and enjoyed a delicious lunch as well as great company from this very interesting and passionate artisanal producer.

Book the tour…well worth the money!!
