We were asked to plan an incentive trip around the region of La Rioja with the duration of 5 days. Our mission was to provide all the activities including a deluxe accommodation in a Wine Resort, a local Russian speaking guide throughout the trip, a deluxe private bus at disposal, breath-taking activities, food & wine tasting experiences, cultural tours, and gastronomic meals for lunch and dinner.

• Accommodation in a luxury wine & Spa hotel in Laguardia during 4 nights.
• Transfer to Haro for a hot ballooning activity above the region of La Rioja. Separated in 3 groups, the participants were able to fly for more than an hour and enjoy a glass of Champagne during the flight.
• Private transfer to a private Bodega in Haro for a visit and a wine tasting course in an incomparable setting. The participants visited the winery and they enjoyed an interactive course, with fun practical exercises in olfaction, and the tasting of different regional wines.
• Lunch in a charming restaurant in the centre of Haro serving a local meal.
• Private transfer to another Bodega in Samaniego, where the visitors could gaze at the production process of the wine in an architectural building. The tour included a private visit and the tasting of two wines and two tapas.
• A relaxing thermal circuit at the hotel spa.
• Fine dinner in the gastronomic restaurant of a wine resort in Villanueva de Alava
• Visit of San Sebastian in a funny way: the guests enjoyed a Gymkhana with clues around the city based on the culture of the city, especially its gastronomy. The activity was combined with a pintxos tour: the participants stopped in 4 bars and enjoyed 10 pintxos and 8 drinks each just like the locals do.
• Transfer to Astigarraga to visit a cider house including a tasting of the local cider and products; followed by a transfer to Idiazabal to visit the Centro de Interpretacion de queso where the participants enjoyed a tasting of smoked and non-smoked cheeses.
• Evening panoramic city tour of Laguardia and dinner in a charming wine cellar restaurant.
• Exclusive visits to four of the most emblematic wine cellars in Laguardia including underground cellars, signature wineries designed by renowned architects such as Calatrava and Gehry. Wine tastings and local products included
• Lunch in a restaurant specialized in regional dishes, offering a traditional atmosphere and a beautiful view on the fields
• During the wine cellars visits, the guests enjoyed a 4x4 jeep activity in the vineyards: 5 vehicles and a driver were at disposal for the participants.
• Farewell Dinner in a gastronomic restaurant awarded by 1 Michelin Star, where the team members have enjoyed exquisite dishes created by a prestigious Chef.

October 2014:
Given to the unpredictable weather during the stay, Enyevent Solutions had to find solutions to maintain all the planned activities and guarantee that the customers did not miss out on a wonderful experience. Due to the active follow-up and careful organization set up by Enyevent Solutions, together with the qualified team involved, the trip went smoothly and every activity was carried out despite the intensity of the schedule.

Enyevent Solutions was proud to manage this Premium incentive trip and allowed the Russian participants to discover the region of La Rioja. The company was very pleased with the destination and positively surprised of all the activities proposed in the area. Our local partners had also contributed to the success of the event providing high quality services.

Feedback: “the clients were happy with the trip and are thinking to do one more group in March 2015 in La Rioja. The group commented it was an unique experience for them”.
