All in all it is a nice experience. The place is well located at one of the banks of river Ebro, on the opposite side to Logroño city center in La Rioja. As you know La Rioja is like the capital of wine in Spain and these cellars do represent the well doings of its inhabitants regarding the production of excellent brands and flavors. Bodegas Franco Españolas is the right place to start your wine tasting tour around La Rioja not only because you get to try their best wines but because of the history and wonderful teachings and explanations of the company's tour guide, a clever and charming young lady.
Please visit this Bodega where you'll learn not just the history of its beginnings and the wine making process, but also how they were a conscientious employer taking care of locals. Our guide (was it Sara? I have hearing challenges and didn't quite catch her name), was just superb with providing the right balance of information on the winery's history and the actual wine making process. I was particularly impressed to learn of the winery employing local widows at a time when women did not hold jobs outside the home. Well done. Definitely worth a visit.
A bit expensive at EUR 14 so didn't visit after having been through other wineries. However the reception was very professional and friendly and the tour a full 1.5 hours so would suit people wanting a good overview of Rioja winemaking.
Fantastic tour, we had the first tour of the day and the only visitors. Well worth a visit & go early - later tours can be busy (all other tours were fully booked)
Not a great selection of wines in the tasting menu, if you are not with a group. You get a tasting menu with like 6-7 wines, you chose which of them you want to taste and you pay per glass. Prices are between 2-4 euros per glass. This is not the best way to do wine tasting since you have to pay a full price for wines you don’t know if you like and you just want to taste. They allowed us take half glasses of 2 different bottles and pay only for one glass (the more expensive one of course), this was nice and you can ask them too. The wines are nice, IMO the cheapest Crianza one was the best. The grand reserva is also good. Along side the wine you get some biscottis and sliced sausages. It is really easy to get there, 10-15 minutes walking from the city center. Just need to cross the river and it’s right in front of you. They have tours in Spanish and English on weekdays, on weekends only in Spanish. In fortunately we went there on Saturday.
