Take a trip back in time and experience how wine has been made since the 1800’s at R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia, S.A.. Tour through a still operational winery that has been using the same methods since its construction in 1877. Journey down into cobwebbed tunnels where the bottle aging takes place, then through the coopers' workshop where they still hand make their barrels. You will end your tour at a much more modern, above-ground shop and can take a trip to the tasting room bar to sample the outcome of this process. Make sure you book a tour in advance, as they may not take walk-ins. Put R.

  • We knew we had opted for the Spanish tour as it was at the time of the day we could do- but it was a little tricky understanding everything! Certainly the lady doing the tour was very knowledgable and...  read more »
  • Traditional Bodega, Located in the neighborhood of the station in Haro. Visit not to be missed to get to understand the traditional style of its wines, guide answered well. Visit from the manufacturing of barrels room, passing through the tunnels where the wines lie for years in oak barrels, environment that demonstrates the style of wine. It's not a bodega with fill my eyes, but it was worth the visit and thus better meet the style of wines. White Gran Reserva is spectacular!! In my opinion the best of them, enjoying wine in a restaurant.

  • The staff were nice and friendly. Helpful about the wines and offer small snacks to help clear the palate/match the food. 
  • Awful. Rude and arrogant staff and wines were not to my liking. I asked for a small taste to see if I wanted a bottle of the Tondonia. She started pouring a glass - I told her again just a taste while she poured (we were driving that day) and she said don't worry. My friend and I both found the wine unpleasantly acidic - almost vinegary. She said 'are you buying it?'. I said no and she said 'fine then €2.10 for the glass'. We paid and walked out and went to CVNE and spent €100 on fantastic wines.
  • The best? Very famous, rather expensive, highest quality though
  • We happened to be in Logrono over our anniversary, and what a wonderful way to spend the day. This is the oldest winery in Spain, so they take a lot of pride in how they process the grapes and keep to the highest standards. There is a 25 euro charge per person for the tour, but it includes their best bottle of wine, a tasting of their wines, and some cured meats. After the tour, we decided to purchase a bottle of wine to enjoy on their patio alongside a platter of meat and cheese. We had inquired about purchasing the meat and cheese platter, but they treated us to it. It was wonderful to sit out in their chairs (repurposed wine barrels) with the warm sun and delicious wine. Simply magical.
  • Most picturesque and charming bodega in Rioja. The wines are something unique and truly stunning. Tour guides are lovely and they even took us for a quick visit when we arrived without a booking and outside opening hours!! Unmissable!
  • Love the pomp, the vaults are amazing and the wine excellent.
