    • 8 Hours
    • Food & Drink Tour
    • Haro, La Rioja & Laguardia
    Your host is a passionate chef and former winemaker with inside knowledge in the world of wine and, naturally, La Rioja! We’re going to have a great time together on this private tour that can be customised to your liking. Count on stopping at 3 different wineries, driving through the countryside, stopping for a spectacular lunch and visiting a timeless village.
    We usually start our day with a tour and a tasting just outside the city Haro where a cluster of wineries have been crushing grapes for well over a hundred years. It’s a brisk 90 minute drive from San Sebastián with stunning views and Haro will not disappoint with classic Rioja hospitality.
    We’ll drive through the countryside throughout the day passing by centuries old villages and vineyards. Depending on the day, and your preferences, we’ll stop at a unique winery for a tasting and lunch.
    Laguardia is a medieval walled city that is truly spectacular and not to be missed. It’s locals only in this unique city, boasting a labyrinth of cobble streets and spectacular views of La Rioja. Oh, there’s wine too! Hidden underground in the walls of the city are caverns for storing AND MAKING wines. We’ll be sure to visit one of these traditional wineries for a truly old school experience. If we don’t have lunch at a winery we’ll be sure to do it here in Laguardia the unofficial capitol of La Rioja!
