What people are saying about La Rioja

Jorge was an excellent guide showing five of us around the vineyard and then inside to see the fermentation tanks and barrels. We then had a pleasant time sampling the two wines produced on site with some tasty chorizo and cheese. 90 mins was just about the right time for us and we ended up making a few purchases at the end. Jorge was very hospitable providing us with all the information we needed as well as local tips regarding restaurants and places for site-seeing. Would certainly recommend.

The tour was very well organized and we really liked our guide. The region is beautiful and the wines are very good. We enjoyed 2 tastings and a very nice lunch. We really enjoyed our day and highly recommend this tour.

Everything was great. Markel, the guide, did great La Guardia fantastic and the visit to the cellar of ten....and we didn't even talk about the food. I recommend it.
