Enotourism proposals of family-owned wineries in Rioja for Easter

Beyond the conventional route of references that can frequently be found on the Internet, the family-owned wineries in Rioja offer interesting enotourism proposals for this Easter. They are wineries with deep roots in the region, with their own vineyards, and in most cases with guided visits by the owners and families, which enable them to discover the other authentic Rioja, which is hard to find in conventional manuals.

Almost one thousand people share the family-owned wineries in Rioja 2017 vintage

The 2017 vintage, one of the most difficult in the recent history, brings high quality wines after overcoming the icy frost in San Prudencio, which significantly affected the production and a persistent draught.  Twenty-three family-owned wineries in Rioja  presented some of the first village wines at Riojaforum as well as some ‘advances’ of future wines in a unique vintage.

Three wineries from the Association are among the seven institutional wines of Rioja

The family-owned wineries in Rioja are the main features in the institutional wine competition that is called each year by  the Regulating Council to select the  Rioja wines that will represent the institution. Bodegas Martínez Alesanco, Bodegas Perica and Bodegas y Viñedos Ilurce took away the prize for the best  Gran Reserve red wine, the best white wine in a barrel and the best rosé from Rioja after the blind tasting by the committee of the Regulating Council.
