Listening to the name La Rioja already evokes wine. Thanks to its geographical location, climate and soil, Eastern Rioja is a privileged area for growing grapes, giving the wines very specific characteristics. Over time, an indigenous culture has been created based on the winemaking process, which is very visible in the villages of La Rioja.
In addition to its carefully produced wines, this area is noted for its exquisite gastronomy, based above all on vegetables from the orchards, which are usually accompanied by a good local wine. In addition, Rioja Oriental has a great itinerary of cultural museums scattered throughout its territory: examples of this are its incredible production and cultivation of mushrooms, the municipality of Pradejón being the one that produces the most mushrooms in the country, and museums such as the Museum of Oil Culture, located in Préjano, which exhibits in great detail the history and evolution of one of the most useful products, used and marketed since time immemorial.
The culture of wine is a very important part of the region’s culture, and it is also one of the most important in the region.
