The Basque province of Álava / Araba, specially its capital Vitoria-Gasteiz and the winery area of Rioja Alavesa , will hold in 2019 the 11th International Wine Tourism Conference, Exhibition & Workshop (IWINETC). IWINETC is the leading global event for the wine and culinary tourism industry, held in grape escape destinations around the world. It can be a good moment to take a good Walk On The Basque Side.

Amazing wineries, landscapes and food are waiting for you in Rioja Alavesa. In the picture, the village of Elciego, with the bright winery Marqués de Riscal designed by Frank Gehry, the architect of the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao.

So, congratulations to my home-city and to the producers of the lovely wines of Rioja Alavesa!
