Our Rioja Tour in a Nutshell

Although I’ve been posting regularly during our Rioja tour, I thought it would make things easier if I summarized highlights from each day.

I thought our visit to Marques de Murrieta, although expensive, was worthwhile because besides making outstanding wines, it was interesting to see the renovated winery after 8 years of closure.

It was also our first visit to Vivanco, which I highly recommend if and when you should visit Rioja because of its first-rate museum, winery and restaurant.IMG_6008

A visit to Haro would not be complete without a stop at certain wineries. The top 4 wineries not to miss are Lopez de Heredia, Muga, Señorio de San Vicente and Remelluri from a quality wine perspective, and Ysios, Baigorri and Riscal from an architectural perspective.

Where to stay? If you like quiet, then head to Haro and Los Augustinos Hotel in a converted monastery. But personally I opt for Logroño, because of the night life activity on Calle Laurel.

And that’s Rioja in a nutshell. Though you can read about our top 5 wine finds in Rioja here.
