What To Expect

Estatua de la Libertad
In our "Like a Native” tour, you will learn the differences of how wine was made in the past and today, always gaining first-hand knowledge from the wine family producers, who will explain everything you need to know about our extensive wine culture:
- We will visit a 5th generation family winery where they maintain the ancient method of wine production. This is one of the last 15th century underground wineries in La Rioja that continues the traditional grape pressing with their bare feet using grapes from their own vineyards, fermenting the wine in stone deposits and centennial wooden vats.
- We will go to the Train Station Quarter in Haro to taste their historic wines, where the real wine revolution began due to a plague that devastated the French vineyards bringing French winemakers to La Rioja in order to export our wine to Bordeaux, establishing their first cellars in the vicinity of the Haro Train Station where there are still 7 centennial wineries.
- We will visit a 3rd generation family winery that continues working the same way as their ancestors using 21st century technology and do a special tasting from the barrels to appreciate the differences between French, Hungarian and American Oak barrels.
- We will go to a medieval 10th century village called Laguardia for lunch where we will have great tasting Spanish food and later walk through its charming streets.

In this tour you will enjoy the experience of learning about 6 centuries of winemaking tradition from the best professionals in Rioja.

The wine experience of a lifetime

Roberto was our tour guide and gave us a lot of information about the Rioja region. Rebeca helped with the planning. We were staying in Bilbao and she helped us find transportation to get to Rioja since we wanted to use public transportation. I could not recommend this tour enough! We went to three amazing wineries and we had lunch in LaGuardia. We got an in depth look on how each winery made their wine and the history of how they all started. It was truly an experience. If you have a free day to go to Rioja, please do it. You won’t regret it.
A great variety of wineries with a great guide!

Our tour guide (Roberto) was very friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to answer any questions we had. I was very happy with the bodega selection as each one was very different.

When we come back we'll certainly go with Rioja Like A Native again!
Excellent

Stellar way to discover the Rioja wine region. Rebeca was very knowledgeable, friendly and was eager to show us the best parts of this unique region. The tour was carefully planned and very thoughtful. We learned everything : techniques, process, history, culture ! All in one day ! A careful mix of historic, modern and stylish wineries makes for a very enriching tour. Couldn't ask for more ! Highly recommended.
