Haro Station Wine Experience

There are many ways to recount the Haro Station Wine Experience: as many memories as people with whom we had the pleasure of sharing the best wine event in Spain, on June 16 and 18 in Haro with the seven wineries located in this legendary neighborhood: López de Heredia, CVNE, Gómez Cruzado, La Rioja Alta SA, Bodegas Bilbaínas, Muga and Roda.

The best moments are captured in this series of photographs:
