When to go

Somewhere between a champagne shower and a 90s Ribena advert, there’s the Batalla de Vino, a unique event that takes place in June each year, just outside of Haro. And for those who prefer to keep their white linens, well, white, autumn is a safe bet, when those lush vineyard greens transform into a rich tapestry of crisp orange and pink.

Getting there

  • Planes

    The closest airport is Logrono, but with only a handful of domestic flights, international travellers are better served by Bilbao Airport, just a 90-minute drive from La Rioja’s heartlands. Flights arrive here from the UK, Europe, and North Africa.
  • Automobiles

    Largely composed of countryside, small towns and villages, cars come in handy here, though vineyard hoppers should leave the wheels parked up. Take a tip from the passing Camino de Santiago crowd and ramble your way home, or better still, ask your hotel to arrange a taxi.
