3 wineries. 3 hosted flight tastings

We know how much you love your Rioja wine that's why we have selected some of the best boutique wineries of Rioja for your flight tastings.The wineries are deliberately selected for their contrasts and their uniqueness. The majority of the wines you taste have a 90+ points ranking of celebrated wine experts James Suckling and Tim Atkin

The Rioja D.O.C.G (Control board) is very strict with the quality of Rioja wine production and resultant classification, hence your wine journey will help you to understand the different ageing processes of Rioja: Cosecha (year's wine), Crianza (minimum 2 years of ageing), Reserva (minimum 3 years of ageing) and Gran Reservas (minimum 5 years of ageing) and thus the correct classification. This will help you to make good wine buying decisions in the future whether in restaurants or for your collection. 

What to expect:

  • Visit to 3 wineries for flight tastings

  • Taste at least 12 different wines

  • Learn all the requirements about the Rioja DOca quality control board. Understand the difference between Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental.
