Stage
: Rioja Alavesa
Start: Rioja Alavesa Finish: Rioja Alavesa
The fourth reason will awaken your senses: Rioja Alavesa. You will fall in love with this land, its wineries and its traditions. This wine paradise will receive you with open arms and will turn you on to a tradition which it has been able to keep alive through dozens of wineries, whose winemakers will be delighted to show you around.

We will stroll around the vineyards in order to discover the different types of wineries that we can find in the Rioja Alavesa: family wineries, caves and cellars, as well as wineries with avant-garde architecture, designed by Frank O. Gehry and Santiago Calatrava, and others. Of course, we can't miss out on the opportunity to sample controlled designation of origin wines.

The possibilities that this sea of vineyards provide are limitless. Firstly, because the heritage of the Historic Quarters in towns such as Laguardia, Elciego, Labraza or Labastida is vast and of considerable value; and secondly because the region's restaurants and wineries invite you to pull up a seat at one of their tables and enjoy the best that Basque-Rioja cuisine has to offer.
