Superb trip to Rioja for a couple of days. Fantastic hotel and food. Pick ups from all agreed locations were all on time and the trip to the winery in Haro was excellent. The winery tour was for the 2 of us only followed by a tasting of 7 of their wines (with food) so we felt we had their full attention, no rush and really good conversation. I would recommend Smooth Red to anyone and will definitely ... more use again.
