What you'll do

This is a special tour to discover the lesser – known Rioja wineries. There are a wide range of small cellars, famous winemakers with small projects and familiar and artisan producers than are out of the usual wine routes. They are well known for professionals and wine prescriptors. In fact, they are hidden gems waiting to be found for authentic wine lovers.
The goal of this tour is offering my guests the possibility to taste wines that is impossible to find at home, because they are really hand crafted wines and they are very limited editions.
Thanks to my work as consultant winemaker and my great background in wine, I have the suitable connections in the region that make possible offer one-of-a-kind experiences as this one.
Both wineries have complete diferent wine styles and I chose them to compare them and understand the trends in current Rioja wine

I'm Cristina, Winemaker, Bachelor of Enology at University of La Rioja, University Degree in Agricultural Technical Engineer and Master in Viticulture, Wine Enology and Marketing among other degrees. I've developed my profession, always related to the world of wine but in different areas, during the last 25 years. But first of all I'm passionate about travel, culture and people. I love talking and meeting new people.12 years ago I decided that Wine Tourism was a wonderful way to transmit my passion to anyone who wants to know Rioja and its wines: learn to taste, discover the secrets of wine, walk among vines. My goal is to offer you an unforgettable experience

My family and I took a chance on Cristina and her half day “Hidden Gems” tour. The experience far exceeded our expectations! Cristina was extremely professional and accommodating. She tailored the experience, was personable, and extremely knowledgeable. On top of all that, she was warm! Worth the $.

I was the first guest to take Cristina's Hidden Gems wine tour and it was like getting an advanced private tutorial in the Rioja wines, culture, history and people. I have some background in small vineyards and wineries, but Cristina's knowledge helped me understand so much more than I could have done alone. I had so much fun that day going to small wineries I probably wouldn't have found on my own and going down into 700 year old caves where the wines are stored. It was truly magical and I have to thank Cristina, because it is her relationships with the local wineries and winemakers that made it all possible. Even if you are a beginner when it comes to wines, you need to take this tour. It is absolutely worth every penny!
