Tour description provided by Viator

This tour will feature the Basque wine region called Rioja Alavesa. This area is home to the best wineries in Spain. Along the way, find not only wine, but discover amazing historical places. The St. James route passes through the area with Medieval villages where there will be a few stops. Also along the way, experience art, culture, and the best that this country has to offer.
We leave from San Sebastian early in the morning, about 08:30 crossing the rugged Basque mountains into the plains.  The wineries are located between Haro and Laguardia. In this area you will find the most traditional wineries of La Rioja. Some of them are not only attractive for their wine, but also for their avant-garde architecture.We will taste wine in at least 4 different wineries. We include tapas for lunch based on the best local products. This experience will take you on a journey between bodegas, and through time. Sip traditional varieties, like Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura, you may know, but our expert guide will fill you in with little-known wine gossip and teach you how to tell the difference between these wines.
