Eguren Ugarte is a wine cellar located near Laguardia, one of the most important wine towns in La Rioja Alavesa. We decides to do a guided visit in this wine cellar and it was wonderful. Really, the winery is big and it has some tunnels dug by hands of the current owner, where a lot of wine bottles are kept. Really it is a very noce place. Also, here we learned a lot about the history of wineries in this region and we could taste three different wines (a rosé one and two reds), which were very good. Also, when we finished the guided visit, we went to the bar and we did a brunch with some other glasses of red wine and cured ham. Excellent.

Beautiful location and such a wonderful staff of people. Very popular stopping point for the big bus tours of locals and other Europeans. They stress their meal along with the wine for a very different experience. We got a four course meal and all the wine we could drink with it. The choices were very Riojana. The flavors were both bold and delicate depending on the dish. We started with the rosado (blush). The perfect starting wine for the appetizers. One of the few rosado wines we experienced at over 20 wineries. We quickly drank it as it was so delicious. Then the servers brought another bottle. Whoa, we were pleasantly surprised and drank that too. Changing to the next course, we got the Crianza and it got slurped up in a hurry with yet another bottle being served when it was empty. 3rd course, the table red became the "house" Ochenta. Wine made as a tribute to the eightieth anniversary of Vitorino, 5th generation of Eguren Family and founder of Eguren Ugarte. Very well balanced and smooth, dark full bodied, tobacco, ripe fruits. Long lasting aftertaste. Wonderful example of Riojan wine. Do yourself a huge favor, pick a meal time at this winery along with the tour and have yourself a great visit. We waddled out with a copy of a recipe from the chef for one of the soups.

This winery has a fantastic location and also very impressive grounds with lots of fun details to discover. There are plenty of parking lots and a bunch of tables outside. The tasting takes place inside. But we didn't go there, since we had our Bulldog with us. But there was the option to buy some wine by the glass and enjoy them outside with the nice views...which we did. The wine here is quite very good one. Smooth, yet strong. Fruity, but not too light. Don't go for the cheapest options if possible. If you like wine a bit on the heavier side, then you have to dig a bit deeper in your wallet. But well worth it. We had the Anastasio, 15 Euros a glass (95 a bottle), very very good. But still a bit steep for almost 100 bucks. The setting is fantastic. The winery sits on top of a hill, overlooking the valley on both sides. Great details like the entrance to the bathrooms outside (check the pics). Good wine, good views. Only one downside: The staff here - at least the lady at the entrance when we arrived - was far from being friendly or helpful. Very reserved, we felt like we were disturbing her. Half an hour later another one took her place...a lot friendlier and more helpful. Not all bad then...but still.

The visit to the caves was great, so interesting and unique to what we’ve seen so far in Rioja. Avenues and avenues of individual ‘nichos’ and collections of wine to be envied!! Rich in family history and tradition clearly but this could have been explored in more detail by the guide - I’m sure it would be very interesting to hear even more. The tour was fairly short in time. There were three wines to taste at the end; the white we did not like at all, a table wine which was very sweet, the reds were better. A cheese chocolate truffle was offered as a snack but it was very odd to taste!

For €12 each, we did the English winery tour and tasted 3 wines. For English tours I would recommend booking in advance over phone or email— I emailed the afternoon before and had no trouble booking a tour at 10:30 the next morning. Our tour was lead by Thomas, who was very friendly and knew a lot about the winery, winemaking process and regulations of the Rioja area. He lead us through the caves below the mountain which was very interesting and atmospheric, then took us to a balcony outside to see a lovely view of the vineyards. Then through to the barrel room and machinery. There was construction going on since it’s the off season but he explained that most wineries aren’t even open for tours at this time. At the end, we got to try three wines: a chilled young fruity red produced through carbonic maceration, then their Cinquenta and their 2013 Reserva, which were all fantastic. The carbonic maceration was not a big hit as it’s closer to the style of a Beaujolais nouveau, but he explained that they serve it because it’s not something you can find much outside of the region. It might have been nicer to try one of their whites, however. The tour and tasting took a little over an hour. Definitely worth a look if you are looking for a solid/middle of the road winery tour in Rioja.
