    Irene was an amazing tour guide. Zach and Irene were very pleasant, knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The wineries that she took us to were just amazing and the people that we interacted with were awesome. The Rioja Region was the best and we learned a lot about wine and the local culture. Don’t hesitate to take this tour with Irene. She’s the best. We highly recommend this tour with Irene and Zach.

    Beautiful drive through Rioja, excellent wineries with great presentations of the wines by the local stewards at those sites with friendly, knowledgeable and enjoyable tour leader who made sure we were happy with the whole experience.

    Our Rioja wine tour was one of the best memories of our 9 days vacation in Spain. Irene was a great guide - knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. We enjoyed each winery Irene and Zach pick for us and the visit to the lovely Laguarida village was a great addition to the wine trip. In addition to the great itinerary and perfect guide , Irene and Zach was the best in communication during the trip planning. Highly recommended!

    Great day of wine tasting in the beautiful Rioja region. Zach was a super guide and took care of everything! If you want to skip the group tours and spend some quality time tasting the Rioja’s best, this is your tour!

    Zach provided our group with a magical day visiting three different wineries in the beautiful region of Rioja Spain. His knowledge of the region was excellent and his easy-going personality made for a perfect day. The surprise of the bodega visits was Conde de los Andes. A wonderful tour of the underground cellars and a wine tasting of fantastic quality wines. A visit the the ancient city of La Guardia which dates back to the 12th century made for a very scenic and sensory tour. Thank you Zach!!!

    Zach and Irene put together a customized winery tour for me and my 19 year old daughter. We had a wonderful time with Irene as our guide visiting a small family-owned winery for an indepth personalized, private tour and tasting followed by a truly gourmet 2 hour 7 course lunch at another winery & restaurant with wine pairings. My daughter doesn't really drink but tasted a couple of the wines and still found it all fascinating and had a great time bonding with Irene. They also accommodated her non-meat diet at lunch. Very memorable.

    This tour was the highlight of our 10 day vacation in Spain. From start to finish, everything was amazing. Irene was knowledgeable and friendly, the wineries were great, and the scenery was stunning. On top of it all, Irene realized I left my glasses in the car after our tour and brought them back to our hotel. Highly recommend.

    The vineyards that we visited were amazing, especially one with an extensive network of underground callers. Zach was very knowledgeable and considerate, and we could not have asked for a better guide! We really enjoyed ourselves on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone from the casual wine drinker to the wine lover!

    Wow. Words do not describe the absolute joy and euphoria of this trip. Irene was a dream start to finish. What a spirit and a light so full of life and knowledge - all too happy to share with us the colored history of the basque culture and cultivation of the region. We began the hour or so drive into the rioja region with Irene enthusiastically illustrating the rolling view with a bespeckled history of her people and culture. We arrived at a beautiful and sprawling ancient winery somewhere in the rolling hills of green Spain and were welcomed by a very charming but peculiar gentleman who was as much comedy as he was sommelier. We toured the ancient caverns - all along our consummate host bopped along with sheer joy and a love of life and flair for this job with so much affection it bled into everything we touched. She drove us out to all the beautiful picturesque stops along the way and encouraged/facilitated all the photos for the ‘gram. She has us laughing and crying tears of joy with all of the good times we had that day. Irene is a treasure and we feel like we made a good friend. We miss her. Take this tour. It was easily the highlight of Spain.
