Overview: Wine Tasting and Cooking Tour of La Rioja Wine Region of Spain
A treasure trove of history and traditions, folklore and fiestas, there is much to see and do in the Rioja. While the gastronomy and culinary delights of the regions will thrill you, of ultimate importance in this region are the world-renowned wines. This is a guided tour where you can come alone and make friends or organize your own group, just set your dates and we’ll get you cooking! During the week you will participate in hands on classes. In these sessions you will learn to prepare several four course meals and then enjoy your feast. You’ll appreciate learning how to pair the incredible Rioja Wines with each dish you prepare. But you can be sure you won’t be in the kitchen all week! There are several hikes among the vines, a visit to the Rioja Wine Museum, a tapas night in the heart of Logrono and there are tours of hilltop villages, vine laden hills and plains and we’ll visit two legendary Wine Dynasties of the Rioja.
OUR ADVENTURE WILL TAKE YOU TO:
HARO, a charming town on the banks of the River Ebro with its lively cafes and elegant mansions.
LOGROÑO, The capital of the Rioja with its wide boulevards, cathedral and shops.
LAGUARDIA, A medieval hilltop town built within its fortress wall and dancing on top of many underground wineries.
