Simply one of the greatest treats to the La Rioja region in the north of Spain is not just the wine but the food.
We are in for an amazing treat at La Vieja Bodega just outside of Haro.
A vineyard and fine dining all in one.
If you go with a large group you can have a wine tasting in their cellar which has the musty smells of yesterday and wines.
Angel, who owns the restaurant with his wife Marion have a fancy selection of some 400 ones at the front of their restaurant.
The menu for the restaurant is stunning as is the food.
You can’t really go wrong and today I order the ratatouille with cod fish and the shoulder of lamb for main course.
It is all delicious, flavoursome and gluten free!
The shoulder of lamb is one of the most tender sweetest well cooked cuts I have ever had.
Desert is a gin and tonic sorbet – it is enough to wake you up yet lure you towards a siesta.
I would love to bring a group of people through the Basque region showing you these amazing gems. The food and the people are warm, hospitable and excellent at their wines and food.
You will need to book in advance here and if you are lucky enough you will get to meet the wonderful duet Angel and Marion. Thank you, we will be back again for sure. x
