Hi! I’m Clara - a born & bred Riojan girl! In fact, I’m a fifth generation of women in my family born in Logroño. I’ve spent my youth walking the old streets of the city with my grandmothers and mother, listening to their stories and I’m in love with Logroño, I know the local history by heart and I’m a natural storyteller so you will be re living the history of this land with me.
My love for travelling and discovering new lands and people has taken me to many places. I have an MA in History Art from Aberdeen University in Scotland and I have lived in Aberdeen & Glasgow for nearly 15 years (so you will hear some accent there!).
But overall I have a passion for our wine and the countryside that has made us such a world wide known wine region.
Since I graduated in Travel & Tourism in La Rioja University with a focused on Rioja wine and wine tourism, I’ve been an ambassador of Rioja wine abroad. I’ve also attended The Rioja Wine Council (DOca) courses and I hold a Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Qualification. I have worked in event planning and hospitality in Scotland for over 10 years so I have an international perspective when it comes to explain Rioja wine to our visitors.
I would like to offer you a dream holiday in this wine region, a break that you will remember every time you enjoy a glass of wine at home. Shall we start?
