Essential Rioja Private Wine Tour from Bilbao
Discover what makes La Rioja Spain's premier winemaking region on this private, customizable wine tour from Bilbao. Visit two top wineries to taste the bold, fruity red blends that put Rioja on the wine lover’s map, and admire the architectural styles of other estates, including one designed by Frank Gehry. Stroll inside the city walls of the medieval Basque town of Laguardia on a guided walking tour, and enjoy the flexibility of a private tour that's tailored to your group’s interests.
What to Expect
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.
