Take advantage of our expertise and contacts

We have been organizing  wine tours in Rioja for wine lovers from all around the world since 2002. We are the first wine tours company founded in Rioja. Although wine has been produced in Rioja since ancient times, tourism is brand new in the region. When we started, most of the wineries in the region were not even open to visitors. Except for our guests.

Wine is our passion and we are from Rioja. We have a wide network of prestigious contacts and cultivate relationships with most of the wineries in Rioja. From the big labels to small boutique and family-run wineries which you probably would never find on your own. Places that will turn your visit to Rioja into an unforgettable experience.

There are more than 600 wineries in Rioja, so it can be complicated to figure out which winery to visit and how to organize an itinerary, specially since most of them require bookings in advance. Some of the wineries are focused to tourists and it is easier to book yourself , but the most special ones are not always reacheable online or they don’t speak English. We can help you to discover very authentic and top wineries and offer you access to places that most tourists don’t have.

Let us  put our expertise, contacts and passion to work for you!

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY…

Amazing and Knowledgeable Guide - Great Customer Service - Wonderful Tour!

When booking our tour, the Thabuca team was very polite, responded quickly and answered all of our questions. They set up a wonderful tour with some excellent winery choices. Our guide was incredible! We had great tours at each location and she even snuck in an extra winery for us. She was so fun, patient and knowledgeable. During the tour, she even pulled over on the side of the road to show us more sights and changes in the soil color (and how that affects the wines grown in that region). The lunch was epic! No picnic lunches here… five course meal with wine pairings. Overall, we loved every minute and had a great tour. Would absolutely book again and can’t wait to return!
