Rioja Wineries and Laguardia Tour with Picnic from San Sebastian
From US$259.43
Overview
Explore the classic wines and food of the La Rioja region on a 9-hour wine tour from San Sebastian, visiting three local wineries for tastings at each location. Your day in La Rioja also features an elegant Spanish picnic accompanied by crianza wine at a fourth winery, as well as time to explore the picturesque medieval village of Laguardia. With pickup and drop-off at San Sebastian hotels, and all tastings and lunch included, this wine tour is an indulgent way to discover La Rioja wines.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your San Sebastian hotel for 8:15am departure, then begin the trip to the La Rioja wine region in a climate-controlled minivan.
The first stop of the day is one of La Rioja’s most traditional wineries, where you’ll learn every step of the Rioja winemaking process. Following the tour, pause for a tasting of five different wines that are produced onsite.
Continue to two additional wineries, sampling at least two distinct wines at each location for a broad perspective on the flavors and aromas of local wines. Lunch is at a fourth La Rioja winery—descend into a maze of underground wine caves and tunnels, which make an atmospheric setting for a generous Spanish picnic.
Pour a glass of red crianza wine to accompany a Spanish omelet, tomato salad, Iberian ham, and a plate of locally-produced cheeses. Head to the medieval village of Laguardia for an after-lunch stroll, setting an easy going pace through the town, where you’ll find historic the Marques del Riscal and Ysios wineries tucked into the winding streets.
This 9-hour tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.
