My husband and I decided to take Alfredo up on a private tour offered in EXQUISITERIOJA. We visited the neighboring villages surrounding Haro where we explored the rich wine history of Rioja. Alfredo is very knowledgeable and it was very interesting. We tasted wines along the way, hand selected by Alfredo. He was even able to source a wine from my birth year! It was topped off with a picnic prepared by Alfredo enjoyed at sunset overlooking Haro. It was a truly unforgettable experience. Thank you Alfredo for taking the time out of your day to take us on an adventure around Rioja!

We came to Haro for the wine battle, and while that was awesome, the highlight of our trip was spending a day with Alfredo as he took us out for a perfect day in the vineyards and hiking in the nearby mountains. We experienced wine tasting in La Rioja at its finest! Alfredo is a gracious host with great culinary skills!” Randy and Laurie, Baltimore, Maryland, 26 may 2018
We have just returned to Colorado from our wonderful trip to Spain
We greatly appreciate the time we spent with you in the Rioja region. Your expertise and passion for what you do is evident. Thank you for sharing that with us as well as the extra effort you put into our picnic and visit to Roberto’s winery.
Until next time,
We had a wonderful stay with Alfredo in the Rioja region. No one is more knowledgeable about wine than this man. He was courteous, kind, and accommodating with his space and time. I would gladly revisit Rioja with him as a host and guide.

Hi Alfredo, We so enjoyed our visit to Haro, and your vineyard tour was a highlight of our trip. Best, Naomi
Exploring Rioja and Haro is much nicer than any other town in the region. However, what was excellent was having Alredo show us round the bodegas on his private tour. Such fun. Highly reccomend for all. Thank you
Alfredo really gave us the chance to full experience the Rioja Alta region at the best! He’s not just a local guide and bodegas expert, he knows the area like his pockets including secret places and unique itineraries concerning wine & food, history and local tradition. His professionalism together with his international languages skills made our trip more than exclusive. So enjoy his tailor-made wine tours. Graziee ee!!!

This place was a great find. It was a wonderful experience to stay in a wine cellar. Alfredo was a great host and if you are looking to learn about the wines in Rioja, he is an exceptional person to be around! Thank you for everything and your knowledge. I have learned a lot and I can share my information with my colleagues.

During visiting places, I learned many things about the Rioja wine, such as history, character from him. He gave me many tips how to select good wines and how different between Modern and Classical Wines. It will be great time staying with him to getting knowledge of Rioja Wine. He is also doing private wine tour. Get into his website and you can get the some more idea of his wine knowledge.

Alfredo is a friendly and knowledgeable guide, also readily available to provide information . Alfredo is a sommelier and extremely knowledgeable wine tour operator in the Rioja region, so the wine-related information and recommendations he provided were great for helping me get the most out of my time in La Rioja.
