What To Expect

It is said that the wine supply in Rioja Alta is one of the richest of Spain and probably the world.

Each town has its own wine tourism offer, from the smallest village to the capital of La Rioja Alta, Haro, with its famous Station Quarter.

In the late 19th century, wineries were built close to the railway station. Today they are among the great names of Rioja wine, universal references. Walking through this area is like walking through history.

We will visit one of the most historical wineries in Rioja, and you will realize how they have evolved architecturally, artistically and, of course, in their winemaking, learning the history of winemaking and wine traditions to become the modern winemakers we see today; finally, we will taste some of the most classic Rioja wines.

Finally, we will enjoy a professional tasting to compare the different styles of the wineries we have visited during the day: Traditional Wines versus Modern Wines.

What can I say about 'Rioka Like A Native' and the wonderful Rebeca? Due to Covid, this trip was in the making for over 3 years... And it proved to be well worth the wait! Rebeca showed such care and patience in going back and forth with me via email, and helped to plan an awesome trip as a birthday surprise for my husband. Honestly... We wrote each other about 40 emails - that's how much she cared and wanted us to be happy. She really went above and beyond to make the experience truly special.

First, we spent a day in Ribera Del Duero with Bruno, who was also a fantastic guide with a great sense of humour and brilliant wine knowledge. The wineries in RDD were spectacular and I would highly recommend the region as a 'must visit' for wine lovers. Rebeca then whisked us off to Logrono for a day of respite before we did our tour of Rioja the following day. Both tours saw the perfect blend of wineries, varying in scale and with a clear distinction between family run vineyards vs the most prestigious and world renowned businesses. It was truly fascinating and such a heartwarming experience. The hosts at each winery were so generous and kind and contributed greatly to our tour. We enjoyed fun filled conversation over numerous glasses of delicious wine(!) and plates of sumptuous hams and mouthwatering cheeses! In RDD we enjoyed a full on three course meal at our last winery and it was pretty spectacular. The quality of everything we ate and drank across the two tours was top notch and the informative nature of the tours meant we really improved our wine knowledge.
 
Each of our hosts were wonderful, the wine was absolutely delicious and the food was perfectly paired. Rebecca was kind, patient and the perfect guide. Would I book again? Absolutely! My husband and I had the most fabulous time and the memories we made on this trip are ones we will cherish and remember forever. 
Muchas Gracias, Rebeca - from the bottom of our hearts. Until next time :)

The whole day was excellent from pick up to drop off, each venue carefully thought through and delivered a different insight into a different aspect of the wine making in the region, excellent tour .
Amazing day!!!

We truly enjoyed our wine tour! We were picked up promptly to be taken to our first winery. We loved the variety of wineries we saw (old and new). There was no shortage of wine tastings and food. We even had a homemade lunch cooked for us which was delicious. Highly recommend for anyone looking to explore rioja bodegas.
“Fabulous wines and gorgeous countryside “

We thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour with Rebeca. She was a pleasure to spend the day with… knowledgeable and such a lovely person. She picked us up at our hotel in Logrono and we set out on an all day private tour. We learned so much about all of the Rioja wines and tasted some amazing wines throughout the day. We had lunch in a medieval village that was just breathtaking. We highly recommend this Rioja wine tour!
Great experience
