Reviewed January 11, 2013

We do a lot of wine tasting in the States and found Bodegas Muga similar in many ways (tasting room with large area to sit around the bar and trinket sales area, etc.). We talked to at least 3 staff and all spoke some form of English. The tasting fees were very reasonable, with nice pours (with English definitions), and some very nice and interesting wines. We are not big Rioja wine fans, but did enjoy their wines. Although this place seems to be a big tour bus destination, the tours have their own tasting areas but it does get busy before they leave, making purchases, etc. The staff seems to realize the impact to non tour groups like us and accommodates very well.

We made a reservation for the English tour of Bodegas online few weeks in advance (the current price is 6 Eur/pp). The tour lasted over an hour, and was very comprehensive, informative, and friendly. We had a chance to observe the mashing process, bottling, barrel making, visit the cellar and a cozy tasting room. The wines we tasted were not our favorite; but tour was probably among the best we ever done. Highly recommended. At the conclusion of tasting our tasting wine glasses with Muga logo were presented to us as gifts. I am happy both glasses made it home OK, what a pleasant reminder of our visit to Muga and La Rioja.

Having wandered around Haro looking for a vineyard tour to go on we finally managed to get onto a Spanish tour at Muga although neither of us can speak Spanish. Having being on a number of tours this was not too much of an issue as the they are all pretty similar.
The cellars were impressive and the tour guide seemed knowledgable.
The highlight, of course was the wine tasting. the glasses were larger than expected although each cost between 50c and 2 euro.

We visit Muga by invitation. After a very comprehensive tour of the Bodega, an extensive tasting took place in the old and original family dining room.A light lunch was generously provided and we were tutored through a tasting of 7 or 8 Muga wines. I am very grateful for a wonderful visit and have now bought some cases of their wine.

We stayed in Haro as part of a road trip through Spain in order to do some wine tasting. Unfortunately our largey unplanned trip meant that most of the tours of bodegas were full, however Muga had space on a spanish tour. My spanish is fairly non-existent however, though I undoubtedly missed many of the finer points the tour was still very interesting, not only in learning about vineyards in general but also the details of what make Muga different. The tour was extensive, as were the cellars but very reasonably priced. It also included a glass of red and white as well as a free wine glass. The wines were delicious, i will certainly be trying to source some white rioja back here in the UK. We paid the very reasonable prices (from 50 cents to 2 euros) to try a number of their other wines, I'd very much recommend the cava, it looked like it had very few bubbles but they exploded in tiny bursts once in your mouth.
The staff were excellent, very helpful and tried to explain things to us in Spanish so even if you can't get on a tour in your own language it's still worth going!
