Introduction

Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and his wife, Aurora Caño, both of whom came from families with a long tradition of activity within the wine-making industry. Over the years, Muga wines have gained international recognition and acclaim, and from working with just a few thousand kilos of grapes per year, the bodega has now expanded its processing capacity to over one and half million kilos. The tradition is based on wood, whether it be used to form, tubs, casks, beams or pillars.

Muga has changed the rules of ageing, exceeding the minimum limits to produce crianzas that taste like reservas, and reservas that taste like grandes reservas. Nevertheless, although it may seem somewhat paradoxical, this working philosophy has not prevented from making wines that are perfectly in tune with modern times.

On this tour you will discover all the secrets of famous Rioja wines with a winery tour at one of the historic wineries in Haro at “Barrio de la Estacion”, the quarter where historic wineries of Haro are located. You will also have the chance of enjoying a glass of wine at the Wine-Bar of a winery with a cutting-edge building designed by Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi architect based in London and known for the spectacular nature, innovation, art, daring and subtlety of her work. She was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004.  

You will also taste some Pintxos (or “pinchos”) are the local name for small tapas, a part of our culinary culture, a local custom not to be missed if you visit this region.
