What’s the Covid situation in Spain?

As of December 24, over 80.3% of the population has been fully vaccinated and over 84.8 million vaccine doses have been administered in Spain.

Do I need to wear a mask?

Face masks were previously required only in indoor spaces or when social distancing wasn’t possible.

As of December 24, masks are now required outside too.

Vaccination certificate

*Updated on January 4th

From 1 February 2022, in order to travel to Spain with a vaccination certificate, the certificate must have been issued by the competent authorities of the country of origin at least 14 days after the date of administration of the last dose of the full course of vaccination, as long as the final dose of that course of vaccination was no more than 270 days ago.

From that time, the certificate must show the administration of a booster vaccination.


Safety Measures in Place

In accordance to the safety protocols set out by the Spanish Health authorities, Rioja Wine Trips kindly asks all our customers to follow these measures for a safe experience:

  • All our guests need to keep an obligatory minimum distance of 2 metres with their tour guide and other visitors who are not part of their group when at a winery.
  • Breathing masks must be worn during all winery guided tours (health reasons are the exception, please let us know ahead of time). Single-use masks are available upon request.
  • Regular cleansing of hands with hydroalcoholic gel for disinfection is recommended.


We follow a strict vehicle cleaning protocol. Prior to a tour our vehicles are steamed and sanitized. Both are equipped with hand sanitizer.

All our providers (wineries, restaurants and artisan food manufacturers) meet the safety and hygienic standards we have required to work with them. We have personally checked that they have implemented the necessary preventive measures at their facilities to ensure a safe visit.
