Wine tourism in Ruta del Vino de Rioja Alavesa

The wine festival in Rioja.

The Rioja Alavesa Wine Route is limited to the province of Alava, where we will find 58 wineries. The route passes through 11 towns with wineries that offer wine tourism. On this route, the town of Laguardia is an essential destination, with 19 wineries offering wine tourism.

Along the Ebro River and perpetrated by the Cantabria mountain range, runs the route of La Rioja Alavesa, a wine tourism destination of worldwide reference. Here we can find vineyards, medieval villages, architecture ranging from the Renaissance to the Neoclassical period, festivals, old inns to stay and a spectacular gastronomy. Wine tourists should know that they will have a little more than three hundred kilometers of vineyards of red earth to travel, and this route in particular and La Rioja in general, is a wine destination, as they say of themselves, inexcusable. In addition, for fans of traditional winemaking methods, you can visit underground wineries and cellars. One of the most important wine festivals is called UZTABERI EGUNA, and it is celebrated in Puebla de Labarca. If you also want to combine your love of wine with olive oil tourism, here you can also find an olive oil festival, which is held in the towns of Moreda de Álava, Lanciego and Oyón. The grape harvest takes place in September and there you will find music, dance, gastronomy and popular tastings. It is important to know that for the Rioja Alavesa, this time of harvest is one of the most important and special times of the year, and it is usually accompanied by gastronomic days, pinchos contests, and for the more sporty, 4x4 routes, canoeing and hiking in the mountains.
