Ribera del Duero

“Ribera del Duero”, is a paradise for wine lovers with grapevines from Castile and León, all along the Douro basin. There are hundreds of wineries to be found in this paradise, but none is like the one you are going to visit today. About an hour from Valladolid you will visit a winery with gastronomic variety and impressive architecture. Designed by the famous Norman Foster, this winery is a cosy fusion between the modern and the traditional styles, between the industrial ways of working and the farming of the land. Discover the winemaking process, from the grape to the bottle with your private guide and learn why the winery was designed like a flower with three petals. You will end the visit with a tasting of three different wines and a little snack. After our vineyard visit you will continue to an outstanding local restaurant and enjoy their menu and its varied wines. On your return trip to Valladolid, you will enjoy a short stop to explore the mythical Peñafiel Castle.
