A group of winemakers from Rheinhessen recently visited Rioja  to learn about viticulture and winemaking in our region as well as the control procedures created by the Rioja Regulatory Council.

While in the Rioja region, the group visited Bodegas Franco-Españolas, Bodegas Campo Viejo, Bodegas R. López de Heredia, the Vivanco Wine Museum and Hospedería Los Parajes.  All of these properties have been winners of a ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award. Other stops were at Bodegas Lecea and Bodegas Artuke.

The group also spent a day in Bilbao where they had lunch at the Bistro of the Guggenheim Museum and took a guided tour of the city.
