The Villa Lucía Wine Centre was born to know, understand and love it.
Located in Laguardia, the epicentre of the Basque Rioja, the museum shows the intimacies, the history of this region, the rituals and the knowledge of the ‘grape juice’ culture.

Pleasant, suggestive and, above all, revealing. Through this visit you will become an active subject and will discover why wine is the most universal drink.
