Spend the day with the grapegrowers and winemakers
Meet two generations of a winemaking family and see the behind-the-scenes of a winemaker’s day to day life.
This is an exclusive tour of Rioja wine country: taste some superb wines at cellars not normally open to the public.
This tour has 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.
Ask everything you always wanted to know
When you taste you only see the final product. On this tour you will have the opportunity to ask them everything you always wanted to know about grapes, vineyards and winemaking decisions over (many) glasses of wine.
You will wander through the vineyards at your leisure with the winemakers, learning about viticulture and the winemaking process.
First we will visit a family-run winery with an impressive 15th-century cellar. You will meet the family and enjoy 4 wines.
Then we will move town to meet the two generations of a family of growers and winemakers. We will visit their vineyards and see the vines being worked. We will finish with an extensive Rioja tasting of the fruits of those labours at the private dining room of 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.
Afterwards we will have lunch and we’ll finish off the day with a visit to a quaint medieval town.
Number of wines tasted
You will taste a total of 10 wines: 9 wines at the wineries + 1 wine at lunch
