Exclusive tour for wine lovers who want to escape from Madrid and discover Ribera del Duero, one of the most famous wine regions of the world.
An exclusive excursion to Ribera del Duero to discover the best of Tempranillo grape. For 2000 years wine has been a very important part of this region. Some Roman mosaics show us the link between wine and society in the Ribera del Duero lands. Thousands of underground cellars and old press rooms are part of this huge heritage, which today serves as the key of knowledge for vine growers and wine producers. The wisdom of traditional wine-making and the complexity of new techniques combine past and future in this wine tour.
To better understand the wine culture of this region, you will visit different wineries and enjoy wine tastings. You will meet the leading characters of this successful wine adventure that started centuries ago, and you will learn that gentle breeze, extreme temperatures, poor soils and sudden storms in the "Land of Castles" are part of the Ribera del Duero terroir. Enjoy a traditional lunch with regional products, and taste the unique baby lamb roasted in a wood fired oven, as important in Ribera as the wine itself.
We would like you to experience all aspects of wine, from the types of grapes used and how to grow them, to the secrets of wine tasting in the Spanish wineries, while enjoying Spanish gastronomy, art, history and culture. Our wine specialists and local sommeliers will tell you about the wines of Ribera del Duero, accompany you during the tour and give you interesting information about the wineries, the traditions and curiosities of the area.
You will be given a comprehensive tour in each of the wineries, visit the facilities and be guided through the process and secrets of wine making, from grape to bottle.
We will pick you up in the morning and be back in the evening. This will be both an educational and fun experience.
