With wine, golf

In Scotland, the home of golf, golf courses are said to have eighteen holes because that is the number of glasses you can fill with a bottle of whisky.

The same could be said of a good Rioja wine, where the combination of golf and wine tourism is increasingly tempting… although in this case, the proportion of glasses is of course somewhat reduced.

In the north of Spain, without having to make long journeys, golf enthusiasts have at their disposal gems such as the Izki – Campo de Urturi complex, designed by Severiano Ballesteros, the Cirueña and Sojuela golf courses, and the golf complex in Logroño, located next to the La Grajera Natural Park, the place where pilgrims bid farewell to the city on their way to Santiago de Compostela.

Elsewhere, it is the landscape of the vines that takes over at the edge of the greens, confirmation that the day will end in the best possible way, with drinks, laughter, and food.

Because the gastronomy of Alava and La Rioja is based on local, high quality products, you are guaranteed a perfect combination of sporting and culinary pleasures.

Logroño won the “Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year” award granted by the International Association of Golf Travel Writers, in 2019, and that must be for a good reason. So let’s follow their example. Some have already come to the conclusion that if the inventors of golf are happy with whisky, it is only because they do not have good wines.
