It is a tour to explore the high-quality lesser-known wineries of Rioja: smaller cellars, artisan producers, remotely located wineries that are highly praised by their fellow Riojan winemakers. We think it makes sense that you can sample the wines that are not so likely to be found at home, what we call the hidden gems. Producers that make small batches which are directly sold to high-end restaurants and wine shops.
These are usually “one-man band” characters, very talented grapegrowers and winemakers that make top-notch 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. You will visit to 3 off-the-beaten-track wineries and enjoy a private guided tour at two of them, along with 3 tastings.
Experience first hand the wonderful hand-crafted wines on this intimate tour that unveils the lesser-known face of Rioja wines and winemakers.
