The Station District (Barrio de la Estación) is a landmark in the town of Haro. It boasts the highest concentration of centuries-old wineries in the world, which were built around a central point —the railway station. That is why it is known as the golden mile of Rioja wine.
But the fact that the district’s firms are centuries-old wineries does not mean that they are old. Wineries are constructions which are never finished. They evolve one generation after the next and manage to blend their most classical aspect, the oldest parts, with the most modern architecture.
This way, a visit to the Haro Station District becomes a journey in time, where you can follow the evolution of wine and architecture during the last century.
