I really appreciate the trouble you have gone to.
I have always wanted to visit Haro and Paco and your suggestions look terrific
but may have to wait for a trip with fellow wine geeks !
The suggestions closer to Logroño seem more likely.
Of course a full report will be posted ! ;-)
In San Vicente de la Sonsierra: Casa Toni
Go to Briones to visit the Wine Museum of ‘Dinastia Vivanco’... is a must… they just produce simple wines but the visit is quite interesting. The restaurant at the Museum is also excellent
I have not been to La Rioja since 2005 so maybe things could have changed… you know… Restaurants close or their quality worsens…. And so on ;-)
Thanks for those links Paco.
I appreciate your point about things changing but it’s great to have a recommendation.
I suppose I’m planning a little early !
But I’m REALLY looking forward to it.
I’m sure you’ll have a great time ... I have not done it myself, ever!
Ray, I think you have enough information about cellar, although I would never miss Lopez Heredia. In this cellar you will be able to see all the process because they make their own oak barrel and don’t miss the “Cemetery”. Related with the hotels, I have been in
Casa de Legarda
Calle Real 11
Briñas, La Rioja 26290
This in not a hotel, it is the Spanish version of a bed and breakfast house. You can see it in the web, it is a typical riojan house Brines a small village close to Haro, the house is really nice.
Enjoy your visit.
