Route 2 is a trip through the most famous wine-making region in Spain, La Rioja.
On day one, after Logroño we will reach Haro, the self-appointed capital of the La Rioja wine region, with the highest concentration of wineries of La Rioja. We end up the day in Laguardia, a beautiful village forming part the Rioja Alavesa region.
On day two, we drive to jewel of the region, spectacular Laguardia. There is time to visit a state-of-the arte winery, Ysios, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, and also a trip to the pre-history of the La Rioja.
Day three is the end of the trip. We will visit a winery located in the underground of Laguardia, wander around the cute village of Elciego and end the trip in great style visiting world-famous Marqués de Riscal winery and hotel, designed by Frank Gehry.

Hola Cecília and Tony. Thank you for developing your informative and interesting Road Trip vidoes. I will be travelling to La Rioja in September 2023. I was hoping to obtain some accomodation suggestions on your site but can’t find any? Regards Peter
Thanks, Peter. We haven’t dealt with accommodation in the region yet, but feel free to ask for advice!
