Rioja Wine Primer with Rustic Lunch - Bilbao - 2019 ( 8 Hours )
Bilbao, Spain | 13 May 2019

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Easy
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Spain’s most famous wine region, Rioja is just one-and-a-half hours south from our port of Bilbao. The area’s many vineyards enjoy a privileged microclimate and terroir, but Rioja also offers beautiful scenery, prehistoric archaeological sites, stunning contemporary architecture, medieval towns, and lovely manor houses. We’ll begin our day at The Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (Wine Company of Northern Spain), located in the heart of the winery district of Haro. This is one of the most historic wineries in Rioja, dating back more than 130 years. We’ll tour this emblematic locale and enjoy a special tasting with a light snack. We’ll continue to Eguren Ugarte, a family-run winery that has maintained the best of traditional wine production methods while also incorporating innovative modern techniques. We’ll have a tour and another tasting before settling into the dining room for a traditional lunch with specialties such as garlic-mushroom casserole, Rioja-style potatoes and beans, grilled lamb chops, and goxua, a richly layered custard dessert from the Basque region.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire and comfortable walking shoes.
