‘Entorno a la mesa’, the Rioja Alavesa food and wine event


On 22 and 23 July, the town of Oyón-Oion will host the 5th edition of this Sustainable Food and Wine Encounter in the region of Alava. Tastings, talks, live music, dancing, paired dinners, organic-sustainable market with KM 0 products, show cooking... and hiking through a sea of vineyards!

The essence of 'Entorno a la mesa' (Around the table), the great summer experiential event with which Rioja Alavesa captivates food and wine lovers: A ritual and a way of life in which everything revolves around the pleasure of good food and drink, one of the great hallmarks of this region of Alava rich in vineyards and wines. Cheers!

The event will be divided into three complementary parts.

1. Mahai Experience
