This Culinary and Wine Tour focuses on La Rioja and Basque Country,
the heart of the wine growing and gastronomy centers. This is a can’t-miss food and wine journey. On your activity-packed vacation, you will improve your knowledge on the history and culture of wine in this storied region. Enjoy unforgettable meals in gorgeous surroundings, while traveling in one of the most tourist-free areas in Spain. In addition, you’ll travel through striking medieval villages.
You’ll visit a surprising range of wineries, each unique and possessing its own distinct attributes. Learn firsthand from winemakers and winery owners as they guide you through their estates, explaining their personalized wine-making methods and of course, sampling their renowned wines. You will indulge in traditional meals, along with new innovative culinary creations.
This hands-on culinary and wine experience includes learning to cook local dishes in a restaurant, alongside a chef. Rioja wine may be unfamiliar to some but it is an esteemed wine, which you will learn about on your visit to a small bodega. Also, you’ll learn to make tapas at a family-owned Pintxos bar, followed by a delicious wine dinner.
Your home for the week is a private family-owned boutique hotel located in the center of a historic village in Rioja, where you’ll be hard pressed to find locals who are not involved in growing grapes and making wine. After your exhilarating culinary and wine filled days, relax each evening in a comfortable room with first-rate amenities, including a private bath with a rain shower, A/C, electric blinds, TV and yes, Internet access.
