Thabuca Wine Tours Serve Up Northern Spain’s Rioja Region This Summer

 Rioja-based wine tour operator, Thabuca is offering UK travellers a true taste of northern Spain this summer with specialised wine tours to this most iconic of wine producing regions.

With the stunning Rioja landscape as a backdrop, UK visitors can sample locally-produced wines and traditional cuisine under the expert tutelage of local wine experts. Often overlooked by travellers to the Iberian Peninsula in favour of the more well-known Costas, La Rioja nestles beneath the Cantabrian Mountains, with fertile valleys, lush vineyards and some of the most beautiful scenery in the entire nation.

Thabuca’s guided wine tours promise to unlock the secrets to the region, all while sampling the fruits of the burnt orange soil and Mediterranean-blue skies, a land that nurtures row upon row of vines and some of the best red wine in Europe.

For those seeking to escape the UK for a holiday or weekend break, Thabuca Wine Tours are the perfect answer. Taking visitors across rolling fields and lavender-bordered vineyards, Thabuca’s goal is to introduce travellers to the beauty of northern Spain’s landscape, its distinct culture, historic cities and of course, its much lauded vino.

One of the wine tour pioneers of Spain, Thabuca provides guests with a personalised, educational and exclusive experience of the Rioja region. Visitors will see local wineries, sample local wines, and visit little-known beauty spots off the beaten track. Rioja is home to a distinct, vibrant culture and the origin of some of the best wines in the world. Tabuca Wine Tours’ itineraries are carefully curated to give a glimpse into the fascinating, authentic Rioja with its desert skies studded with eagles, roots that stretch right back to the dinosaurs, modern cities and of course, some of the best wine makers on the planet.

Thabuca CEO & founder Carol Gutierrez said, “When I first visited the Rioja region, I was amazed. It’s a rugged, beautiful place and full of unique, local wineries. I worked as a tour guide in the region and always noted how hard it was for visitors to find and get to the many vineyards and wineries. That’s what planted the seed for Thabuca Wine Tours.

“Since then, we’ve expanded our tours to offer something for everyone but always with the aim of helping guests to experience the diversity of this unspoilt region and its fabulous grapes. Rioja is a place that feels local, no matter where you come from, and we want as many people as possible to experience what the region has to offer.”
