“Excellent tour of traditional Riojan wine cellar”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

I highly recommend this bodega tour. With many of the local bodegas having moved to state of the art technology and having hired top architects to construct fancy new buildings, I was interested to see the more traditional way of making wine. The local tourist information office in Laguardia recommended this tour to us as it was available in English.

The son of the bodega's proprietor carried out the tour in fluent English. Initially we watched a video before heading downstairs to the wine caves/cellars. The video itself was not particularly interesting but it was short. The real value of the tour was in the conversations we had with our guide, who was extremely knowledgeable and answered every question we had. We saw the underground wine vats and tasted some of the wine early in its fermentation process. The personal touch here was great, something you don't get in other bodegas.

The tour was excellent value for money at only a few euros each for around 45 minutes. We also tasted some of the finished product afterwards and decided to buy a couple of bottles to enjoy at home. It was a very old-fashioned place but a perfect opposite to the modern world of the big name bodegas.

Tours are available in English and Spanish and times are available from a poster outside the bodega itself or from the Laguardia tourist information office.
