This incredible little town is located on the edge of Basque Country at the entry point to the region of La Rioja. The unique thing about this town is that every single building has a cellar underneath it. They did this so that everyone can create there own wine and the wines here are considered better the wines in La Rioja. Check out the video I post to see what these cellars look like.
