Visiting wineries in Rioja Alta takes us to the westernmost part of ‘DOCa Rioja’ with numerous significant towns. Subject to the Atlantic climate and on a wide variety of soils ranging from clay-limestone, clay-ferrous and alluvial, they bring with them great stories full of emotions, which over time have allowed them to become one of the main wine tourism references in the world. Among many other riches, this area is home to the largest concentration of hundred-year-old wineries in Europe; the language route with the monasteries of Yuso and Suso (located in the town of San Millán de la Cogolla and a World Heritage Site), plus one of the most special stages on the Camino de Santiago.
These are some of the municipalities that form part of and define the regions of Haro and Nájera. These names are not only well-known and stand out in all corners of the world, but also contribute a lot to the region. They boast great scenic appeal, environmental richness, cultural diversity and an unrivalled passion for wine that is capable of sparking anyone’s interest. Haro, Ollauri, Briones, Cuzcurrita del río Tirón, San Asensio, Cenicero, San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Logroño or Fuenmayor are some of the hidden destinations in this wonderful area located in the westernmost part of the region.
