Hi everyone. I was wondering if someone could help me out. myself and wife and our friends are looking at visiting Rioja next year. 2 of us are massive fans of the wine (our wives tolerate us loving this) and we were wondering where the best place would be to stay, and also is the wine expensive? and lastly do you all have any recommendations where to visit....any help would be much appreciated. thank you.
We are frequent visitors to Rioja for many years. Fave spots to stay are Logroño, Haro, and LaGuardia. Easy to do vineyard visits from any of these. The 'big three' are next door to each other, a short walk from hotel in Haro: Lopez de Heredia, Muga, CVNE. Logroño offers huge selection of wines in the bars/restaurants in the centre. Hospederia in LaGuardia is a special hotel and wine bar. We gave up driving ourselves to vineyards because of lower alcohol limits some years ago. Hire a driver or use a local guide. (Imma at Rioja Wine Trips is especially good!)
Hi we stayed in Logrono, it was very good for all of us, even the non wine drinking one amongst us! The wine tour from there by Imma was expensive but again, you didn't have to love wine to do it, I have some excellent photos from the tour.
Hi. We had a fantastic and unique experience in July this year with Inma from Riojawinetrips
I would highly recommend a day wine tour with them.
The tour was off the beaten track and we visited several cellars where wine is made and food consumed.
Highly recommended! Peter and Allison
We were staying in San Sebastián, so I cannot help. Maybe you can ask the guide of la rioja wine tour.
We visited 6 wineries and I really cannot remember how many wines they offered to taste.
La Rioja wines are quite expensive comparing to other Spanish wines. But wines as well as food, comparing to France or in the Netherlands , where I m living, are much cheaper.
I am sure that you are going to love La Rioja.
Highly recommend you stay in Legrono. We were there 4-5 days during our two week trip and loved it. The city itself is a lot of fun and very close to a lot of wineries in the Rioja region. Wine is super cheap in this area. One random cafe we popped into had glasses as low as 70 cents. Highly recommend you also take the wine tour with Inma. It was the best experience of our entire trip to Spain.
Has anyone got an updated number? No website and no contact details ! Not even a name... we would like to go today!
From the UK, you can fly to Bilbao and then either rent a car and drive to Logroño, or you can take the train to Haro from Bilbao. We rented a car so we could explore a little more and it was very easy to get around. We also stayed in an Airbnb in Logroño.
