Driving to/from Wineries in Rioja, Spain?

projectbennett | Aug 26, 2014 12:08 PM


When visiting wineries, how did you get around Rioja? I am staying at Elciego, but have a rental car and plan to visit Haro (Lopez & La Rioja Alta).

If driving, did you have any concern of using a car even when sober due to Spain's strict DUI laws? Their blood alcohol level rules are essentially zero tolerance versus .08 in the US, where you can have a glass and still be able to drive.

Curious to hear only people with experience driving in Rioja. I'm not looking for a discussion on drunk driving, so please don't misinterpret my question or take this thread in that direction.
