Vinoturismorioja.com is an independent guide for wine lovers who want to know the Designation of Origin Rioja, ie, the region of Spain where Rioja wine is produced. This region comprises the lands of La Rioja, Alava and Navarra.
We believe in a wine region have much interest the landscape, culture and gastronomy as the wineries that usually grab the attention of wine. For this reason, in our website we made a selection of villages, vineyard sites, museums and important monuments, which holds information, wine, tasting courses, restaurants and hotels associated with wine tourism adds.
The D.O.C. Rioja region of Spain is the largest number of wineries, many of which offer guided tours. To guide visitors from the wide range available, we have established valuation principles of these wineries based on criteria of tourist and cultural interest.
Unlike other websites of commercial character, Vinoturismorioja.com wants to be fundamentally a useful and reliable for the users guide. The information provided here has been gathered and developed entirely by our editors. Records on wineries, hotels, wine shops and other commercial establishments do not contain advertising. The inclusion and maintenance of these tabs on our website depends solely on our judgment and do not require any payment from the establishments.
When creating Vinoturismorioja.com, in 2009, we wanted to fill an important information gap in Internet. The public authorities of the territories included in the DOC Rioja wine tourism promoted exclusively within its borders, so there was no official website with information about the region as a whole. Regarding private initiatives, they consisted mainly of advertising directories, web sites where wineries are recorded to advertise. The information available to enjoy wine tourism in Spain has increased since then, but is still heavily contaminated by marketing strategies online that detract credibility. Vinoturismorioja.com remains a unique site in this regard.
