La Rioja – Spain

OK, so I’m eventually in La Rioja, the province that produces my favourite Spanish wines, so how on Earth can I describe this amazing experience in a nutshell?

Highlights:

Wine tour + 6 courses lunch menu + matching wines for 40€ at Baigorri, an ultra modern winery that has a “Best of Wine Tourism” award for architecture.

The unique experience of staying at Eguren Ugarte,
a hotel in the middle of the bodega, among all the barrels and vineyards.

Visiting Muga, one of the oldest wine estates of Rioja.

Trying (and buying) Spanish extra virgin olive oil at Roda,
one of the most prestigious wineries/olive producer that is known for producing some of the best wines of Spain.

Driving around and slowing down in the countryside of Spain, doing the Camino of Santiago de Compostela by car (I hope it counts).

Yes, I’m having a ball.
