Located in the very north of Spain, just below the Pyrenees Mountains, sits the little wine region of La Rioja. La Rioja exhibits a long and extremely rich history of wine making, with records leftover from the Roman settlement that date as far back as 200 BC. It is particularly fertile due to the seven major rivers that run through the area, which provides life to all of La Riojas naturally stunning landscapes. Recently named by TripAdvisor as the "Best Place in Spain for Wine", La Rioja is a must for any level of wine drinker.

The journey will begin with a transfer to the 5-star Hotel Marques de Riscal. Designed by Frank Gehry, who also designed the Bilbao Guggenheim, Hotel Marques de Riscal is an architecturally advanced masterpiece. With all the amenities one would expect from a luxury hotel, the one-of-a-kind hotel manages to blend futuristic design with top class classic comfort

After soaking up the atmosphere of this architectural marvel, venture down the winery for a tasting to whet your appetite before dinner. Guests can look forward to tasting 2 wines; Marqués de Riscal Rueda and Marqués de Riscal Reserva, served with local regional Riojan snacks; sausage and chorizo.

Expect to be wowed with a 14-Course Michelin Starred Dinner; surrounded by breathtaking architecture and impressive views of the medieval village of Elciego and the Riojan vineyards.

Discover the secrets of the wine and food of the area, visiting an amazing range of the region's leading wineries, from traditional to boutique and avant-garde wineries, New Rioja to Traditional Rioja.
