I was born and raised in San Sebastian, I have been an avid traveler all my life, and I also love anything that has to do with food and drinks. I lived in California for 15 years, where I worked in the service industry, and where I also was a tour guide for almost 10 years.

I am passionate about history, architecture, and wine. And I love working with people. All of that combined with the fact that I know deeply the Basque region, and I have such extensive experience working in the service industry in California, makes me unique for this experience.

Where you'll be

After picking up my guests in a small minivan in San Sebastián, we will drive south across the Basque mountains where I will tell them about the Basque history, geography, politics (lightly), and more. On our way there, I will also tell them about the winemaking process and all I know about the Rioja region.

Then we will arrive to Rioja, about 2 hours drive.

This was a fun and experimental tour, celebrating wines in a myriad of ways from the traditional to the experimental. Good value for money, and we bought several of the wines, so that is an earmark of a good tour.

Great tour to see 3 wineries in Rioja from San Sebastián! Great value compared to other “wine tours” we researched, as well as a great balance of the guide being there to help but not always standing with you! Would highly recommend!

Wir hatten einen großartigen Tag mit Anton, konnten kleine handverlesene Weingüter besuchen und haben Geheimtipps für wunderschöne Orte und Restaurants erhalten. Es war sehr angenehm, professionell und superfreundlich.

I had an absolutely amazing time on this excursion. Anton is so incredibly knowledgeable about wine and Rioja winemaking. The experience felt so intimate and special. At the second winery we visited we got to walk in the vineyard, try the grapes off the vine, and watch part of the wine making process because it was a harvest day! Anton took tons of pictures for us as well. Truly a once in a lifetime experience that will be a highlight of my trip to Spain.

As a Basque native, Anton knows a great deal about Basque history and the history of Spain. He is very knowledgeable about wine and a delightful person to spend the day with! I would highly recommend you take a tour of La Rioja with Anton - you won’t regret it!

Mi hija y yo tomamos el tour por recomendación de mi otra hija, quien lo tomo hace un par de meses. Ella quedó encantada, y nosotros también. Antón es muy conocedor del tema de los vinos, así como de muchos otros temas de cultura general y de la cultura vasca. Nos mantuvo entretenidas durante el largo viaje hasta los viñedos y de regreso a San Sebastián. Lo recomiendo sin temor a equivocarme. Gracias Anton
