When you approach Bodegas Baigorri all you can see is a glass cube sitting at the top of a hill, with a commanding view of the Ebro valley on one side and the Cantabrian mountain range on the other. The winery is built underground to minimise its impact on the surroundings; it has seven levels with the wine flowing down 32m from vinification to ageing, bottling and shipping. There is a restaurant as well as a gift shop where wine and other wine-related items can be purchased.
Useful information: Visits by appointment only at 11.00 and 13.00 Tuesday to Saturday. Cost: €10 including a tasting of two wines and a snack. English spoken.
