We had a tour of this wonderful bodega and got to look round the caves that were carved out of the stone to store wine by the barrel or bottle,apparently there's about 2 miles of of caves that were created by the owner and friends over the last 30 years it's very intriguing to say the least, the tour was led by the delightful Laura who was a fantastic guide full of knowledge about the bodega and it's history. Also she talked us through the wine tasting and the way to get the aromas and flavours out of the wines she was pouring for us. I didn't know how much work went into creating and looking after the wine really impressed with the way it is set up they clearly love their passion for wine from grape to glass, beautiful bodega what a treat.

We stayed at their hotel, so on our last day we did the bodega tour. The first part is going through dark tunnels. It was interesting, but not something everyone has been able to do if they're claustrophobic. According to the guide, she always has at least one person that has needed to step out during that part.

After the tunnels, the tour moves to the large areas where the barrels are stored. We had to keep moving out of the way for workers to move around getting barrels. It was very interesting and informative.

All bodegas should consider building hotels. This place was very special being that we were able to stay there.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, fantastic views from our room an the restaurant. Great shower and very comfortable beds. Our evening meal with 3 glasses of their wines for 4 courses was excellent value as was the room price. Staff were delightful, though as it was harvest time the shop and bar were a little short staffed. We tasted and bought both red and white wines and got a discount as we were staying in the hotel. We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked.

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.

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.

We were so thrilled to stay here - even if only for one night on this occasion. The hotel is absolutely stunning. The views from the common areas (lounge room and restaurant) are spectacular. We chose a premium room which was large and had a huge beautiful terrace overlooking vineyards and hotel grounds. The evening meal was wonderful and restaurant so cosy with amazing food.
We managed to fit in a wine tasting with the friendly,helpful and knowledgeable young man working there, and of course buy some of their fabulous wine to take home.
We were so lucky to meet the owners grandson who was beyond friendly and welcoming. We can't recommend this place highly enough - just go to see for yourself and you won't be disappointed. We will be back in the springtime!

We LOVED the wines, the food at lunch was more than plentiful. The views were amazing. We enjoyed everything about our experience with the winery. What was troubling is that they have a very RUDE receptionist at the hotel. Montes. I guess, I'd be bitter too if my name was that. We wanted to look at the hotel for future stays, since we were in the region for a while. Montes did not wan us there and didn't care if we were future guests. She was horrible.

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!
