Rioja Alavesa Tours
The region of La Rioja, dotted with vineyards, is a crossroads of diverse peoples and cultures who chose this land to fill their glasses.
Elciego, home of the Hotel Marques de Riscal, designed by Frank O. Gehry, is a stop well worth making before or after your visit to Pamplona. Since it is only 106 km from the center of Pamplona, you can even make it a day-trip.
La Rioja is a small province, but is rich in natural resources – is one of the Spain’s most famous producers of wine. Besides having an interesting landscape, it has an important historical heritage with endless possibilities for visitors.
Here you can explore a lot of world renowned wines and aromas and will know to differentiate each of them.
We will make a wine tour where you can visit wineries and vineyards, and sample some fine wine before returning to the hotel for a wine therapy spa session with which you can relax with specific treatments: honey and wine skin treatments, an intoxicating massage, or Gommage exfoliation with crushed cabernet. At end of the day, there’s nothing better than a pairing dinner, which is the art of combining dishes and wines in order to achieve a synergy of flavors and even colors.
The next day, you can attend a wine tasting, where experts will teach you to distinguish textures and aromas. The rest of the day you can stroll through the village of Laguardia, enjoy wonderful restaurants that serve delicious dishes or play golf on one of the nearby courses.
