Castles and vineyards

Insurmountable walls, castles on hills surrounded by vineyards, cobblestoned streets with palaces and shields of noble families, gothic churches, underground caves that hide centenary cellars … it could be the scene of a medieval film, couldn’t it? however, we are referring to a town 100% authentic: Laguardia (Rioja-Spain).
Just one hour away from the Bilbao airport, in the middle of nature, the Rioja Alavesa makes you feel good. All partly thanks to our great host Judith, who welcomes our group of guests (leisure or business companies) as if they were her own friends.
Her incredible home reflects the long history of this family of diplomats and incorrigible travelers. A place that housed pilgrims and that has one of the longest underground cellars (calados*) in Laguardia. Eating while enjoying great wines and discussing the history of this medieval region, is gratifying. Especially when she shows us her latest collection of handcrafted pieces that she makes or the illustrations she publishes in her children books.
Another family that welcomes us with a lot of love is The Madrid family. They are the third generation taking care of this spectacular jewel of the XV century, the Bodegas Casa Primicia. A perfect place for holding special events (meals, tastings …) and business meetings.
The stone walls of the masonry are part of the town’s historic wall. It has a cozy multipurpose room of 100 m2, equipped with the latest technology. Their guided tour of the winery introduces you to a whole new world. The dining room designed right inside the underground cellar * can hold up to 70 people and you can taste their wines next to the barrels. In addition, the garden, situated between the vineyards of the Carravalseca lagoon,  is open to their guest during the spring and summer.  If you visit us, it is a must to try the grilled lamb chops … after that, you just have to choose between resting in the shade of an oak tree or biking between vineyards … If you like the authenticity, contact us.
