    This La Rioja tour will take you on a visit to a subterranean winery lying beneath the historic Basque city of Laguardia that dates back centuries.

    A visit to a traditional family run winery is included to highlight the absolute pinnacle and prestige of the La Rioja winemaking. This estate produces wine that rates in the top 100 of Rioja wines with more than 90 Parker Points.

    We will also guide you around the medieval city of Laguardia along with external views of some of the most architecturally significant wineries in La Rioja. In Laguardia we will stop for a private guided tour inside the city walls pointing out historical sights of interest. Tour starts and finishes at your hotel/accommodation.

    We experienced an excellent wine tour in the superb countryside of La Rioja. Well planned and superbly executed. The tiny winecellar in the caves of La Guardia is a must ! Many thanks, Zach !
