Bodega La Rioja Alta S.A.

In 1890, La Rioja Alta SA was founded by five families sharing a common passion for wine. It was the start of an ongoing quest for excellence that their descendants still pursue. Since then we have managed to extract the best from the marriage of our tradition in wine ageing, to state-of-the-art technology in grape fermentation. Our wines (Viña Ardanza, Gran Reserva 904, etc.) have become an international reference for the finest Rioja wines.

Our guide, Marta, was incredible! There was great email communication leading up to the tour and she even went out of her way to make a special drop-off for us! The tour itself was super interesting and brought us to wineries that we wouldn't have otherwise found on our own. Finishing with a delicious lunch in Laguardia capped off the best day of our trip! Highly recommended.

The meeting point between knowledge and the enjoyment of wine. Today at Vivanco we understand wine as a way of life from an innovative, energy-filled perspective, offering you a unique, exclusive experience around the Culture of Wine. Winery, Foundation and Experiences are a faithful reflection of the commitment of the Vivanco family to "giving back to wine what wine has given us", which we invite you to discover.

We couldn't get a tour with any of the vinas we attempted and happened upon Vivanco by chance - we were so glad we did. First, the view from the grounds is spectacular. They serve typical Riojan bocadillos and other food in the bar. There is also a restaurant on site. The museum offers a great perspective on wine. Eduardo, who conducted our tour of the winery, is a serious, knowledgeable professional with a vast knowledge of the region, Vivanco family wine business and wine production.

Bohedal Bodega Boutique

Reviewed By colbywalton - Dallas, Texas

Promptly upon our arrival, which had been arranged by our hotel in Abalos, we were greeted by Leire, who took us on a wonderful guided tour. She explained in great detail their winemaking process and the distinctive elements of Bohedal's wines, easily fielding our questions and happily welcoming all inquiries. At the conclusion of the tour, we had a chance to sit with Leire and try several of the wines, all of which we enjoyed very much. She was also a delight in telling us more about the Rioja region, her family's winemaking history, her trips to promote Bohedal's wines, and her efforts to make their wines available in more markets abroad. We would highly recommend visiting Bohedal to any visitors, including those like us who know very little Spanish and require a guide with fluency in English. All in all, it was a warm, welcoming experience, as well as highly informative. We'd go back again, for sure!

Reviewed By RonanJordi - Rochester Hills, Michigan

This is an old bodega (in newer modern space) which is in outskirts of Haro. They make of course amazing wine but also Vermuth (!) which we didnt know.
First of all the staff (Lourdes) is amazing! She is high energy, friendly and very accommodating (as we changed our visit time multiple times to facilitate the Haro winery musical chairs wine visits . . . if you have planned visiting wineries here you will understand what i mean by that!). Kudos to the staff for hiring someone so friendly and wonderful who truly is the "face" of the winery as she is it.
Now to the wine.. .we loved this wine (even before the tour) as we had a glass of it at a nearby tapa place and asked who made it and they showed us the bottle and it was a Martinez Lacuesta wine!
Come here for great wine! and there is no charge (the owners feel strongly about this apparently and really doesnt feel as commercial as lets say a winery in Napa or a winery nearby that starts with M).
We highly recommend

Bodega Conde de los Andes

We are in the heart of Rioja Alta, a short distance away from Haro and Briones. Wine is deeply rooted in the history of our small village, as evidenced by its noble houses built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Churrumendi Hill, Ollauri's highest point, offers stunning views of the River Ebro valley, between the Sierra de la Demanda peaks and the limestone walls of Sierra Cantabria and Toloño mountain ranges. Today, with the Murúa family at the helm, Bodegas Ollauri-Conde de los Andes brings back an age-old tradition. It was in 1894 when Federico Paternina built the modern cellar where his ancestors had been making and storing wine since the 15th century. After successive changes in ownership that have marked recent decades, Julián and Javier Murúa have begun a new era.

Junguitu - Museo del Vino del Portal de La Rioja

Cover 440 m2 dedicated to the centennial history of Rioja wine. Sprayer, sulfur, decanting pumps, strippers, cooper tools and many other tools that bring the atmosphere of the cellars of the century. All that stands between rustic and artisan of the most representative wineries of Rioja as R. Lopez de Heredia and Marqués de Riscal Muga among others.

Reviewed By PatxoTourguide - Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

Every time I tour a group for a tapas meal at junguitu's winebar I enjoy it more, he always has a bottle of the 64 or older Riojas to surprise us, his latest discoveries always are great choices, like the wild Garnacha of Moncayo, his knowdledge on wines is amazing and the food his brother cooks is simply unique traditional spanish food. Don't miss the callos (cow stomach) and the pikled rabit.
A must go!!

iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion

Reviewed By Roskers - Cambridge, United Kingdom

You are spoiled for choice in this area of La Rioja for church architecture but this is a magnificent example and not to be missed if you are nearby. It has a high altar to rival Santo Domingo and fascinating features throughout. Each devotional chapel brings its own surprises and the organ is truly sumptuous.
