Say the word ‘Rioja’ and you conjure up stunning Spanish wines. Draped against a backdrop of the Sierra Cantabria mountains, in the north-west of Spain, Rioja is the country’s most famous wine region. Our tour took in some of the loveliest Rioja wines accompanied by the finest local cuisine. There was so much more to explore: stunning scenery, the sheer exuberance of the lively tapas bars of Logrono and unforgettable meetings with quirky winemakers. Those little details are often what make the biggest memories. We’re culture vultures too: we explored the peaceful Yuso monastery & medieval hilltop town. Rioja, you were truly a treat.
