Wine & Gastronomy at Basque Country & La Rioja
If there is something we all love to prepare is an exquisite event. And this is one of our favourites, of all times. You will agree with us if you take a look at the photo gallery.
We have just returned from the Basque Country (including Bilbao, San Sebastian) and La Rioja where we have enjoyed a sublime gastronomy, drunk the best wines and discovered some of their most famous traditions, gastronomically and culturally speaking.
The group has enjoyed visiting some very different wineries in the area: the biggest and newest Marques de Riscal, featuring a masterpiece building created on 2006 by Frank Gehry; the traditional and familiar winery of El Fabulista and a modern winery with an I+D department to ensure the best quality, Baigorri.
Gastronomy is also a leading area in this part of the country, so it has played an important role in the event. We have prepared for the group an exclusive regional cooking workshop in La Rioja, to discover some of the most typical dishes of the area and something totally different as a haute cuisine workshop in a culinary school in San Sebastian.
And as we were in the Basque country, we couldn’t leave without trying some of their oldest and best-known traditions. The whole group as enjoyed a training in an official fronton court and a pelota match, and some water activities as paddle surf and canoeing. After showing their competitive side, the whole group has enjoyed together a Pintxos Tour in the Bilbao’s Old Quarter.
But this is just an example of what we can do. Contact us and we will build a personalized proposal for your company.
