Which winery would you like to visit?

In Rioja there are hundreds of wineries and wine cellars so deciding which ones to visit during your trip is no easy task.

The wines

If you’re a Rioja wine fan you probably have your favourites, and you’ll want to see the wineries and meet the people who produce the wines.

Traditional wineries

There are traditional wineries that still perform many tasks manually.

Modern wineries

There are wineries that have implemented technology and automatic control in all the winemaking processes.

Large wineries

There are enormous wineries, with endless rooms that hold thousands and thousands of barrels.

Small wineries

There are small wineries that still use underground cellars, excavated centuries ago by their ancestors.

Architectural interest

Great architects have been at the service of Rioja wine: Frank Gehry, Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid, Ignacio Quemada, Jesús Marino Pascual…

Location

There are wineries all over Rioja and Rioja Alavesa. Visit those that are nearest to where you’re staying, or take the opportunity to discover different villages in the region while you visit the wineries.

Some wineries have a restaurant and offer lunches paired with their wines.

What do people say about us?

A Fantastic Day of Wine!

Marina speaks excellent English, and is obviously well-connected in the Rioja wine industry. We toured three wineries, and we were warmly greeted at each. We enjoyed an excellent lunch at a nice restaurant frequented by many in the wine industry. She also took us to see some historical sites in some of the older medieval villages. She is well-versed in the history of both the region and the wine industry.

Everything worked perfectly. My highest recommendation to all who are considering working with Riojatrek.

Best wine tour ever

We have been on several wine tours, France, New Zealand and Australia, this tour was the most comprehensive one we have been on. Our guide was very friendly and certainly knew his facts with anything to do with growing, harvesting and making the wine. A great 4 hours.

Fantastic experience!

My father and I spent 5 days trekking and wine tasting across La Rioja with Marina. It was a fantastic experience and one I could not recommend enough. Marina knows the wineries, villages and countryside so well and takes such care to ensure her clients' interests are looked after throughout. We experienced a real variety of walks and wineries, October was a great time to visit and Marina's efforts meant we were able to make the most of our trip.

Breathtaking Rioja!!

Lovely Rioja wine tour. Experienced 2 wineries and walked through sone vineyards. We did the Wednesday tour which included a stroll around haro and Laguardia too... A must.
It was Easily booked, good communication and we had an excellent and friendly tour guide, Yara. She was very informative and looked after us well.
The lunch meal was very good, 3 courses of local riojan food and we also sampled some more wine. I would highly recommend this tour.

Relaxing wine tour

Experienced a very professionally arranged visit to Rioja , which included La Guardia, Briones and Haro. Had Tapa's lunch and visited CUNE winery and the Vivanco Wine museum which is excellent. Our guide Yara Carignato proved to be a very sensitive and well documented professional who made us feel very comfortable throughout the trip. An excellent way to initiate oneself in the Rioja region.

Excellent tour

From history to geology to the family politics of vineyard ownership, our tour guide was the most knowledgeable guide I could imagine. In the fields, he gave us a close-up education in how the vines grow and are cared for. In the bodega, we could see the wine-making process in action.
This tour is incredibly economical and among the best we've ever experienced.
