The Wine Route
Vineyards and market gardens! This route effortlessly conquers the palate. It gently runs through Lower Rioja, crosses Navarre and reaches its greatest splendor in Upper Rioja. The main aim of this route is to enjoy enotourism, a pleasure that was already discovered in these lands by the Phoenicians and the Romans. The Rioja denomination of origin is one of the oldest in Spain: it dates from the 1970s and its vineyards occupy 53,000 hectares (including Rioja Alavesa). Lower Rioja is an absolute delight, with towns and villages like Calahorra, Arnedo or Alfaro. From here, you take refuge in the beautiful Olite and with this touch of Navarre on the retina; the route enters Upper La Rioja, with its capital: Haro. From this point, close to Ebro River, you set off towards Logroño. The finest wineries and the monastic origins of the Spanish language in Suso and Yuso come together to Santo Domingo de la Calzada.
