Rioja Wine Tour from Logroño – the three sub-regions of Rioja
Tour starts at the Carlton Rioja in Logroño at 8pm on Tuesday 18th September 2018 and ends at around 5pm in central Logroño on Friday 21st September 2018
We start off at 8pm with a fun wine and Pintxo pairing evening on a Pintxo bar crawl, led by wine educator Jose Berger.
The first full day is focused in the Rioja Alta area with a visit to the long-established Bodegas Muga, which has the rare attribute of making its own wine barrels. We will then visit a smaller family winery before lunching at one of the best restaurants in the area, the Vieja Bodega. We finish the day with a visit to the brilliantly conceived Vivanco Wine Museum in Briones.
The second day takes us to a less well known, but nonetheless fascinating part of Rioja, Rioja Baja, now rebranding itself as Rioja Oriental. This is an area where fossilised dinosaur footprints bear testimony to their former existence in that region. Although, less well known than the other two areas of Rioja, it does produce excellent wines.
The third day will be devoted to Rioja Alavesa. We visit the unusual winery hotel of Eguren Ugarte (with its miles of natural cellars hewn into the rock). We then visit the beautiful medieval village of Laguardia. We finish off the tour with a visit, tasting and fabulous lunch at the quality, family winery of Ruiz de Vinaspre.
