The international Haro Station District


This activity is part of the international focus of the Station District wineries, which jointly promote their historic and cultural value as the cradle of Rioja wine and as one of the top wine tourism destinations in the world. The District’s decisive global drive began in New York City in May 2019 with a successful special event, the RIOJA RAILWAY WINE EXPERIENCE, consolidating the six wine houses’ commitment to unite their philosophies, traditions and the recognized quality of their wines, and present them together around the world. The internationalization of the HARO STATION WINE EXPERIENCE now takes another decisive step, in another relevant foreign market, to bring the quality, personality and diversity of Rioja to wine professionals and wine lovers across the world.

The Haro Station Wine Experience

Every two years, the Station District opens its doors with a great celebration that brings together the wineries CVNE, GÓMEZ CRUZADO, LA RIOJA ALTA S.A., VIÑA POMAL BODEGAS BILBAÍNAS, Bodegas MUGA and Bodegas RODA, on an unparalleled day where DOCa Rioja wine and gastronomy are the true key players. After three successful editions, the wineries are again putting the District on the wine and food event calendar. The event has been very well received by the national and international press and critics, winning the Innovative Wine Tourism Experiences Best of Wine Tourism award given by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network in 2015, the Prize for the Best Wine Tourism Experience at the International Wine Challenge Awards Spain, the Rioja Capital Award for a Unique Initiative Linked to Food and Agriculture Resources, granted by the Government of La Rioja in 2016 and, most recently, the title for Best Wine Tourism Initiative 2018 from Wine Routes of Spain
