    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Northern Spain Gastronomy, Bilbao Spain

    • Discover la Rioja with this boutique, personal and friendly private tour. Your tour guide will have a wide knowledge of the wine world to help you to understand not only the Rioja wines but all Spanish wine regions.
    • We will avoid the most touristic cellars so we can focus in the family owned businesses which will give us a very personal experience. We will visit at least three different cellars/wine bars and you will taste many "over 90 Parker points" wines.
    • You will have lunch in a Rioja restaurant prepared with seasonal products and of course, top quality Rioja wine.
    • Discover Laguardia awarded as "one of the most beautiful towns of Spain". We will walk through the beautiful walled and medieval city where its underground cellars still have wineries.
