I really recommend a visit to this bodega. It is an insight into how wine used to be made 200yrs ago. The guide was lovely - very friendly. Perfect English and I think must have been the owner. She was obviously very proud of her winery and quite deservedly so.

Loved it! Make sure to see the map on the wall - it shows how much cellars are underground the entire Laguardia! Kids can have grape juice, - it has the same color as wine, and is so tasty!

We toured El Fabulista winery with a group. The winery is small, producing less than 50,000 bottles per year, all sold in the region. The wine tasting after the tour proved the quality of their 5 products. The three aging cellars are 20+ feet below ground level and their pressing area is also below ground. The guide said that there... More

If you want to find out about traditional wine making methods, which they still employ, then thus us worth a visit. Unfortunately our tour, which takes about an hour, was in Spanish though, a lovely young woman on the tour kindly translated for us.

We took this wine tour based on a recommendation from our hotel and are glad we did. Our tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. She explained all aspects of their processes very well and gave us a much better understanding of winemaking in Rioja. We were able to sample several wines and very much enjoyed them. The only downside... More

We were part of about a 12 person visit and all seemed to enjoy the tour and learn from it. Very interesting not just for the info re the wines but also about the caves and the history of them. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable although she was a touch difficult to understand as she tended to talk... More

We were on the first tour Monday morning. I was thrilled to get to see some of the famous underground caves of Laguardia. After seeing a new cave at a newer winery, this is a marvel given it's 900 years old. This is a small winery, and the wines they make are made for everyday drinking…great prices. Fun tour, lots...

Taste other wines. Go to a restaurant to see an old cellar. This is only for those who like to go through a pure marketing ploy. Our guide was not knowledgeable. She can't go beyond what she has memorized. (I wish we didn't rush out from Vivanco to make the 5pm English tour.)

I visited the winery with my family - we were lucky as nobody else turned up and had the tour with Raquel, who is lovely, completely for ourselves. One full hour of explanation, saw the bodega, we could ask questions and Raquel was happy to accommodate that we preferred to sample a white and a red and not two reds.... More
