During our recent visit to Spain and La Rioja specifically, we tasted a number of wines at the bodegas in Haro. After several visits to this town over the years, I notice they are adding more options where one can simply taste the wine and not take the entire tour. This is my preference as I have seen how the wine is made in many places.
In particular, we enjoyed the tasting at Roda, Gomez Cruzado, and La Rioja Alta, to name a few.
The staff have multi-language skills, are professionals, and make one feel comfortable enjoying the wine. And some of the facilities are spectacular sights in themselves, either very modern or historic. Thus, one can enjoy a good variety of everything.
If you enjoy wine, of course this is a place you must visit. Cheers!
