It is no surprise that these wines are a perfect match for the rich and complex cuisine of this region.
About The Tour
Driving through Ribera del Duero is like travelling in time. The enchanting towns, mysterious tunnels and secret cellars will make you feel you are in the middle ages. The castle of Peñafiel is located at the heart of the region overlooking the main pathways and encircling the ancient and impressive museum. The most outstanding hotel in Spain lays in a monastery from the 12th century. It is worthwhile taking your time to visit their winery, relax in the spa and indulge your sense in a Michelin restaurant.
Ribera del Duero is the birthplace of some famous wineries like Protos, who gave up its original name ‘Ribera del Duero’ so all wineries of the region can hold the name. Let us set up a tasting for you with Alejandro Fernandez, the winemaker of Tinto Pasquera. Alejandro is an extraordinary old-timer who is greatly responsible for the international reputation of Spanish wines worldwide. Just watching him skip nimbly between the rows in his vineyards, surrounding his home, on the top of the hill will fill your heart with joy.
