Rioja

“The Visionary”

Think Rioja and you tend to think award-winning wine, but artistic and culinary creativity have exploded here—and let’s not forget the gravity-defying architecture. So now think wine and cutting-edge design. Oh, and then there’s the spectacular rides along gorgeous vineyard roads, the ever-changing landscapes, fortified towns, medieval history and Michelin dining. Bottom line? Divine.

HOTEL TYPE

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
