But first… Why choose La Rioja for my wedding?

To think of La Rioja is to think of wine and gastronomy, but also of cathedrals and monasteries, World Heritage Sites, protected green spaces, streets full of life and centuries of history?

Almost 40% of the territory of La Rioja is protected natural space, which makes La Rioja one of the greenest communities in Spain, and its landscapes will make you feel you are in the heart of Ireland!

Among hundreds of wineries, you are sure to find the perfect wine for your banquet. In addition, you can take the opportunity to participate in tastings, wine pairing and discover a whole world related to oenology.

La Rioja is populated by rivers that irrigate its rich orchards and offer the best ingredients for its star dishes of vegetables, meat and fish. This simple, delicious gastronomy, based on local products, can be enjoyed in the restaurants of La Rioja, from tasty daily menus to elaborate signature dishes renowned with Michelin stars; but it can also be tasted in the most typical way: going out for tapas in the most famous areas of each locality.

Autumn in La Rioja is synonymous with grape harvest and colour. So if you celebrate your wedding in this season of the year you will find a wide range of warm colours ranging from yellow to orange and deep red to burgundy tinges at the vineyards. The visual spectacle is so fascinating that it is proposed to be considered a World Heritage Site!

With these scenarios, what couple wouldn’t want to look for wedding venues in La Rioja?
