The Rioja Alavesa, with its gentle hills covered with vines, provides a beautiful, changing landscape: it is tinged green in spring, gold and reddish in autumn. Its fertile soil has brought the region international fame for the exceptional wine made.
A visit to its wineries is typical. Some of these unique buildings have been designed by famous architects. Typical regional cuisine rounds off this tour, on which you can also visit interesting prehistoric remains, manor houses, emblazoned buildings or beautiful walled towns. If you enjoy active tourism, this region of grapes and vines will offer you many possibilities.
The best way to explore the Rioja Alavesa, less than an hour and a half from Bilbao, is by car.
