Other visitors’ opinion on the High-end wines: critics choice

Inma and Mel were fantastic hosts/guides for our full-day “90+ club” wine tour.

They went out of their way to create a wonderful wine experience for us at multiple wineries and even prepared a home-cooked Spanish meal for lunch in a cave. Despite the weather, they were flexible, fun, and made sure the day flowed smoothly. We never felt rushed. They were also knowledgeable about the wine, the region, and the wineries. They even added in a couple new places that were not on the original plan, based on our own interests, which we enjoyed very much. We would highly recommend Inma and Mel as the perfect guides for the Rioja region! They made us feel special and created a very personal and memorable day we will always remember. Keep it up!

rom the first email to the final goodbye, this tour experience was everything I had hoped for when I booked it as a birthday gift for my partner.

I booked “The 90+ Club” tour, but being only keen drinkers and explorers of wine we didn’t have a lot of knowledge about the wine making process, the region or the history of Rioja.

We arrived for our tour with Mel and he started by finding out what we wanted from the day and was very flexible in adjusting the tour to include a visit to a small winery where we could learn about every stage of the wine making process. We tasted some amazing wines and expanded our knowledge of wine, the region and its history. We finished the tour with tasty home packed lunch in a small cave. Mel was the perfect host as well as our knowledgable guide – we thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.
