On our wine tours, you have the chance to really absorb Rioja’s wine heritage, from the very first wine to the latest technologies. You get to meet the locals: the patient grape grower, the expert oenologist and the proud winemaker. While architecture buffs can find the amazing designs of Gehry and Calatrava in Rioja. If you are looking for just a short break in Rioja, we have a 24-hour tour if you don’t have more time.

On this Rioja wine tour we take you on a journey from the origins of Rioja wine, when the vitis vinifera was wild and wine a vital necessity, to present day, when wine is one of the most sophisticated products in the world, and the words of wine critics, like Robert Parker, can impact a whole livelihood.
The imposing titanium waves by Gehry seem to float over the vineyards challenging gravity. You don’t want to miss this dramatic sight during your Rioja wine tour. At the heart of Marques de Riscal’s City of Wine, innovation and tradition combine, with one of the oldest Rioja wineries (1858) and a luxury hotel designed by Frank Gehry.
