Viñedos de Paganos

At Sierra Cantabria, descendants of past generations strive to maintain and further strengthen their family winery.

Viñedos de Paganos is located in the town of Paganos. The small town is situated close to the old walls of the town of Laguardia.

The winery was founded by Miguel and Marcos Eguren with the objective of creating great wines. It is a modern winery sculpted under cold rock with incredible wine caves that hold the fruit of two select vineyards called El Puntido y la Nieta. 

Bodegas Luis Cañas in Villabuena de Álava was the scene on September 29 of the 2017 ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ awards ceremony for the Bilbao|Rioja partnership in the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.

One of the highlights of the early evening event for the 150 guests was the beautiful autumn sunset against the backdrop of a sea of vineyards surrounding the winery.

The 2017 ‘Best of Wine Tourism’ winners are:

Innovative Wine Tourism experiences:  Bodegas Ramón Bilbao (Haro)

A visit to Marqués de Riscal’s City of Wine is a walk through the history of Rioja. From the original winery built in 1858 to the spectacular Hotel Marqués de Riscal, designed by the renowned Canadian architect Frank O. Gehry, it’s no surprise that the 100,000 square meter City of Wine was the 2016 winner of an international ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award in the Art & Culture category.

Bodegas Franco-Españolas, winner of a ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award in 2012 for Innovative Wine Tourism Experiences, continues to delight wine tourists with its program of ‘enoactivities’ at the winery.

Logroño's old town has lots of bars and restaurants, but La Tavina offers wine and food lovers a one-stop wine, tapas and local gastronomic experience.

Seven historic wineries in the Railway Station district in Haro (Rioja) opened their doors to journalists, the wine trade and consumers for an exciting two-day tasting event and visit in September 2015.

Bodegas Franco-Españolas, one of Rioja’s most creative wine tourism innovators, has announced its 2016 Summer Cinema program.  This year’s program features:

June 16:     Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot (Jacques Tati)

June 23:     À bout de souffle (Jean-Luc Godard)

June 30:     La nuit américaine (François Truffaut)

July 7:        La Isla bonita (Fernando Colomo)

Each session will feature an introduction to the film and a music show by disc jockey Maldeamores DJ.
