Alava’s reputation as a producer of fine wines is richly deserved. The Rioja Alavesa brand is recognised and highly considered around the globe. In birding terms, the province of Alava lies on a number of important migratory routes for birds and during the autumn and winter one can see spoonbills, cranes, black storks and many more species on their migrations towards the south. Moreover, Alava represents an area of transition between the Mediterranean climate of the Ebro Valley and the Atlantic climate of the Cantabrian coastline to the north. And due to climate change, today there are more and more sightings of Mediterranean birds such as Bee-eaters, Great Spotted Cuckoos, Rollers and so on, in the northern part of the province.
In “Wine and Birds Days” our intention has been to combine the best aspects of these two, exciting worlds to create a unique, unforgettable experience.
The experience includes:
- Charming accommodation in Laguardia.
- A guided birdwatching tour of the Lagunas de Laguardia.
- A fabulous lunchat the Carravalseca Gardens with spectacular views of the vineyards.
- A visit to the ancient wine cellars of Casa Primicia, the oldest civil building in Laguardia
