The Barrio de la Estación de Haro is known for the many wineries that were built here, close to the railroad tracks in order to transport wine barrels more easily. Here we’ll visit a wonderful 100-year old winery where we’ll taste a selection of its best wines, from the most classic to the most young and daring, aligned with the latest and most revolutionary trends. Wine is not the only magical liquid that’s produced in these lands. As Rioja is also one of the northernmost points in Spain where the country's liquid gold (olive oil) is produced, we’ll do a tasting of a delicious extra virgin olive oil (here we call it AOVE, the acronym for aceite de oliva virgen extra in Spanish).
It’s time to visit two charming villages. First, San Vicente de la Sonsierra, built on top of a hill (centuries ago, these lands full of danger, so much so that the villages had to be sheltered in inaccessible places). From here we’ll have unbeatable views over the Ebro river, the sea of vines and the hills that dot this valley so altered by the human hand. Next we’ll go on to Briones in search of a bit of authenticity: streets suspended in the past, an imposing Gothic church and old sandstone buildings, in what is one of our favorite towns in northern Spain.
Next, we’ll visit a small family winery that will explain not only its working method but that of many other similar businesses (independent, courageous and simple in structure) that add great value to Spanish wine culture. This one in particular produces some of the most prestigious wines in the country, a fact that you can check (and judge) when you have a chance to taste the fruits of their labor.
In La Rioja, lunchtime (and gastronomy, of course) is a sacred thing. For this reason, we’ll go to a restaurant that specializes in traditional Riojan cuisine, a delicious menu and, check this out, more excelent local wine!
