THE ILURCE EXPERIENCE

Wine Tourism in La Rioja

If you are interested in visiting a winery in La Rioja, we invite you to visit ours in Alfaro, in the heart of La Rioja Baja.

The secrets of four generations of the Escudero family cultivating vineyards and making good Rioja wines will be revealed. You will also have the chance to taste and purchase our wines at winery prices.

YOUR VISIT

The tour takes you through the ins-and-outs of the winery. We will turn into little grapes and follow the route they travel from their arrival from our vineyards until they reach the bottle of wine now ready to be sold.

You have the opportunity at the end of the visit to taste all the wines we make. If necessary, we can give you some small tips on how to taste wines to help you fully enjoy our delicious Rioja wines.

DURATION

(APPROX. 90 mins)

We have two possible routes through the winery, one of them adapted to people with reduced mobility (in wheelchairs or with prams). Here at our family winery we are always delighted to welcome our visitors and their whole family.

Although children cannot try the wine, they can use their other senses to “feel the wine” and get to know our culture and traditions.

RESERVATIONS

(Required)

If you want to visit our winery, you must book in advance.

Although we have approximate visiting hours, we try to adapt as much as possible to the needs of our visitors and friends.
