Earlier this year there was some discussion about visiting the Marques de Riscal winery at Elciego, north of Logrono. I made this side trip in September and can now pass on this useful information. I left Logrono on a 10.00 am bus from the bus station. The fare was 1.6 Euros. I reached Elciego, after a wonderful scenic drive, in plenty of time for a tour of the winery in English at 12.00 pm which cost 12.00 Euros for 1.5 hours, including a film of their operations and views of the outside of the Gehry-designed hotel. We tasted 3 of their wines afterwards, but I still prefer their entry-level "Proximo" which I buy in Australia all the time! Next day, I walked to Laguardia - 6kms uphill - and stayed in this very interesting town, popular with tourists with cars. I took a bus back to Logrono the following morning at 10.20 am. There are more buses to and from Laguardia than Elciego. It was a very relaxing weekend away from the Camino.
