Wine tour in Rioja

South of San Sebastián, just 1:30 hour away by car, we can find one of the most important wine regions in the world and the Mecca of good wine lovers: Rioja.

Private winery tour in Rioja

Crossing the Sierra Cantabria mountains, which is the natural border between the Alava plateau and the Ebro river valley, we find a unique territory. Within an extension of 100km long per 40km wide, there are some of the most iconic vineyards and wineries. With approximately 600 wineries, we can find from the most artisanal “vignerons” (small wine growers) to mythical wineries full of history (such as those in the famous station neighborhood in Haro town). They have all forged legends in Rioja.

In the tastings you will discover these beautiful wines made from the flagship Tempranillo variety that in this region it reaches its maximum splendor. Full body and bold but elegant wines, full of nuances and that age very well.

With this 1-day excursion private winery tour to Rioja, in Taca de vi we want you to experience this land that smells like wine by visiting and tasting in 2 wineries and enjoying a delicious lunch in the second winery or in a restaurant.

    5 star review  We did a visit to Priorat with Enrico Catala. The experience was just terrific. Enrico is very knowledgeable and made the wine tasting a very unique event. We visited two wineries in Priorat ; MarcoAbella and Clos Figueres, both vists were fantastic, personable and very enjoyable. I strongly recommend this wine tour company. I can’t wait to go back and visit with Enrico other wineries in Priorat and Penedes.
