Rioja Wine Tour from Bilbao
Looking to experience the La Rioja wine country? We offer a number of day tours from both Bilbao and San Sebastian. Our tours can be completely customized to suit your exact needs and expectations. Just let us know.
There are literally hundreds of wineries in the Rioja region that you can experience. The wine is the main attraction, however the natural beauty of the Ebro Valley is something that always surprises our clients as well.
Some of the wineries that we like to visit include Marques de Riscal, Muga, Cune, and Carlos San Pedro in LaGaurdia. On our Rioja wine tours from Bilbao or San Sebastian we normally take our guests on a guided tour of the medieval city of LaGuardia to see the beautiful architecture and unique wineries.
The drive from Bilbao to La Rioja is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes, and from San Sebastian the drive is approximately 2 hours. The drive from both cities is very scenic and offers some great mountain vistas. The climate changes dramatically from the lush coast to the drier mountains of the Ebro Valley.
The cuisine in La Rioja is also a great experience when visiting the region. The meat is exceptional along with some typical dishes like patatas a la riojana (potato soup with chorizo). We know many fantastic restaurants in the region, and can make reservations for your group. We also offer a tour where you can dine in a winery; this is a multi-course affair with wine pairings.
We look forward to showing you the beautiful Rioja wine country!
