Spain has become one of the most gay-friendly countries in all of Europe. The wine region of La Rioja offers a wonderful opportunity for LGBTQ+ travelers to experience everything the beautiful and welcoming country has to offer.


La Rioja produces nearly 300 million liters of wine per year and spans an impressive 63,000-plus acres. It offers a great array of vineyards, each offering samples to guests. Bodegas Muga is one of the few still making its own barrels to store its wine. Bodegas Marques de Riscal is one of the oldest in the region, and boasts a futuristic-looking hotel and an on-site, Michelin-starred restaurant to try.


The capital city of La Rioja is also worth exploring. Logroño contains a wealth of history museums, historic churches and an incredibly charming Old Town that can be discovered on foot. Around the city you’ll also find beautiful religious architecture, including the World Heritage Suso and Yuso monasteries in San Millán de la Cogolla. If you’re more into the outdoors, you’ll find La Rioja boasts dramatic scenery. The region is a varying landscape of rolling hills, towering mountains and winding rivers. The Sierra de Cebollera Nature Reserve is a must visit.
