Don't let its size fool you; Spain's smallest province makes a big name for itself with enticing wines and spectacular scenery. From its healing thermal baths to its rugged mountain trails, La Rioja provides the perfect getaway to any traveler. Action junkies can find adventures skiing, biking or white-water rafting, while the more sedate will find a peaceful respite sipping wine in the region's lush vineyards, or walking the famous pilgrims' trail to Santiago.

Went on a Pintxos tour. Wonderful food and very good wines. The tiny bars are standing only except for a few stools. Very crowded but this adds to the experience. You have a beer or glass of wine, 1 or 2 pintxos (tapas) and then onto the next bar which will serve a very different sort of pintxos. They all speciallize. Great experience and lots of fun.

Bodegas Lecea

Best Wine Experience of Spain 2016. Bodegas Lecea is a trip to the origins of Rioja wine through a tour of the old neighborhoud of Bodegas from San Asensio. In this neighborhood there are more than 350 family wineries dug in the rock in the sixteenth century, all with families production in the past and abandoned today. Bodegas Lecea is the only one that still conserves four caves connected as wine cellars and in operation, with a labyrinthine route of more than 300 meters underground. Lecea Winery still produces and ferments their wines in a constant temperature in concrete vats. The same way that their ancestors worked in the sixteenth century. The winery preserves the old traditions of elaboration like the treading of the grape and pressed in the hand press for the elaboration of its more special wine "Heart of Lake" or "Corazon de Lago", a wine made with carbonic maceration, like those that people drunk before the mechanization of the wineries. The guided tour lasts approximately one hour and is conducted in groups with a specialized guide. During the tour old work tools are shown as goat skin to transport wine, pitcher and wooden tubs. It is also a final video to underestand better the artisian process of Corazon de Lago. A visit to travel trought the time, for the diffusion of the ancestral traditions of La Rioja, for the recovery of the roots and the total comprehension of winemaking precess from the XVI century until our days. A journey back in time to our best origins. (The reservations must be made by phone through our website. The temperature of the underground cellar is 13º all year round, so a jacket is necessary even in summer.) We are waiting for you in our family winery, Bodegas Lecea!

Excellent tour of the only independent bodega in San Asensio. So interesting to hear about the history of this boutique family-run bodega over the centuries and how techniques have been passed on and evolved from generation to generation. Our guide Estela spoke perfect English, had a wealth of knowledge and was super friendly. They also had all necessary restrictions in place due to the current COVID-19 situation. Last but not least, the wine is delicious! Highly recommend this tour if you are in La Rioja.
