Rioja Wine Tours

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.

Discover the land of La Rioja wines

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 and tradition (such as those in the famous railway station neighborhood in Haro town). They have all forged legends in Rioja.

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

With this 1-day excursion private wine tasting tour to Rioja, in Taca de vi we want you to feel this territory that smells like wine. An exclusive experience where you will be able to taste unique wines in different wineries and also enjoy a delicious tapas lunch in one of the wineries.
