Myself and two friends went on the half day wine tour with our host José. He was absolutely lovely and extremely knowledgeable of Rioja and the La Rioja regions.

Not only was the tour of the countryside and the wineries beautiful but we were then treated to lunch in the most fantastic small winery. The stone walls and wooden beams, huge wine barrels and original press felt like I'd taken a step back in time. Everything carefully restored to mix modern with old.

Words cannot express how much I would recommend this tour - just go and do it!

José’s fantastic wine tour was easily the highlight of our wonderful trip to Spain. We did a half day tour starting in Haro, with lunch. José was very knowledgeable about wine and the region and we learned some fascinating information about Rioja. We visited some large wineries for tastings which was very good, but the highlight of the tour is José’s lunch. He prepared a delicious spread at a beautiful small winery in a cave, which was an experience we will never forget. I highly recommend José’s tours - with lunch!! Absolutely worth every dollar.

Had a fabulous day with Jose picking us up promptly at 11.30am from our hotel, and
starting with a beautiful drive through the Rioja region - Jose explained so much about the terroir, the regional and political divides of the area, as well as history of wine making. Stopped for two tastings - really high quality wine with charming hosts, and no pressure to buy wine from them - just to enjoy...and then a fabulous lunch cooked and prepared by Jose in an amazing old wine cave - a truly memorable lunch especially the cooking of lamb over open fire (and lots more wine). Would highly recommend this truly personalised tour and Jose was a delightful host - thank you very much - we enjoyed every aspect of it.

I cannot say enough about this tour! The day was above and beyond our expectations. Jose picked us up right at our Airbnb and drove us right to wine country. He had the entire day mapped out and even allowed for us to make some recommendations for places we wanted to visit. We visited six amazing wineries each offering a different experience. In between tours he drove us around, told us a little bit of history of the region, and was extremely accommodating to any requests to simply stop and take pictures of the beautiful landscapes. The highlight of the experience was the lunch. We had no idea what to expect and were blown away. We had an intimate lunch in a cottage located on the property of small family winery. Jose had gone to the market to get fresh ingredients and wood fired stove was fired up and ready to grill our lunch on. The spread was simply incredible. From the pan con tomate to the chorizo to tortilla to the most delicious grilled lamb I've ever eaten. All served up with wines from the tours we had gone on. If you go to Rioja this is an absolute must. Jose has everything covered from the transportation to scheduling the wine tours and tastings to lunch and knowing all the best places to see; you won't have to think about anything the whole day except which wines you want to purchase!

My friend and I were staying in Logrono and wanted to have a wine tasting tour without having to drive (so we could actually enjoy the wine). We found Jose on trip advisor, and he had great reviews. We were picked up at our hotel, and driven around to the grounds where the grapes are grown, and a couple of bodegas, finished by the best lunch. We had so much fun. He really was knowledgeable and friendly. I cannot recommend his tour enough, and will be back for sure.
