Tour Details - Rioja Terroir private tour

This tour is perfect for lovers of single-vineyard wines and connoisseurs with an interest in the vineyard itself and its growing process.

You will explore 3 of our region’s best vineyards and taste their wines while you walk among the vines, learning about the land and what makes each variety so special. Historically the cellars in La Rioja and the vineyards are separate entities and the wine that is produced is done so with grapes from several different vineyards. On this private wine tour in Rioja, you will only experience wines produced with grapes from exclusive vineyards that capture the essence of the Rioja terroir.

You will have 8 hours to get to know La Rioja and visit the vineyards and cellars. At each of them, you will taste wines that share a common philosophy in their fabrication but still maintain their own distinct personality.

The vineyards are nestled between 2 mountain ranges: Sierra de la Demanda and Sierra de Cantabria and this setting and climate gives our wine a rare and exceptional quality
