Much more than just a museum

We begin by visiting the Ethnographic Museum, where you can explore the influence of every single civilization that lived in La Rioja. Then, we visit the Wine Museum, where you will be able to discover how our ancestors worked the fields and made wine in the 19th century. The tour continues in a chapel from 1583 and our underground vineyard. From there we go up to the “Tunnel of senses”, where we perceive colour, aromas and flavours in wine.

Ethnographic Museum


It houses remains of every single period that has preceded us in time: from the Jurassic and Prehistoric Periods up to Christianity ant the expansion of wine culture in Spain. Visitors will not only be able to see pieces dating back 7,000 years, but also restored tools employed by hominids at that time.

Wine Museum


An exhibition of black-and-white photographs from the early 1900s shows us how Valdelana Family and people from Elciego worked in the vineyards and in the winery. Our Wine Museum also houses a large collection of real tools from the 19th century. They are related to a photograph showing us how our ancestors used them. Thus, our visitors will be able to travel 100 years into the past and learn about the required stages in the production of fine wines.

Tunnel of senses


After visiting a chapel from 1583 and our underground vineyard, the tour ends up in the “Tunnel of senses”. It is made up of five ancient fermentation tanks and four restored fermentation vats where visitors can perceive the colour and aromas in wine, learn about the correct temperature to serve wine… It’s a delight to the senses.

Wine and olive oil tasting


At the end of the tour we taste olive oil and four of our most awarded wines: a malvasia white wine, a young red wine, a crianza wine and signature wine. Our visitors will also learn how to taste the oil we produce from olive trees, arbequina variety, that grown in our vineyards.
