We take you on an accessible full-day tour to Ribera del Duero wine region, located 2h away from Madrid, one of the most renowned protected wine denomination of origin in the world. Ribera del Duero has been producing wine for 2500 years since the Roman period, and since 1982 it is a main Denomination of Origin in Spain. In this private accessible full-day tour to Ribera del Duero wine region, you will taste the most premium wines at one of the most historic vineries in Aranda del Duero together with an expert oenologist from Aranda who will explain the process of making this unique wine.
Aranda del Duero dates back to the Medieval period in the 12th Century, and used to be royal residence for queen Juana, wife of Enrique IV. We will take a pleasant stroll along the old city to discover monuments such as Santa Maria Church and San Juan Church, both named Sites of Cultural Interest, or the Berdugo Palace, where influential Castilian families used to live back in time. The village has impressive underground cellars that go across the old city and also many historical bridges that cross the river Duero.
We will take the time to sample the food specialities from Aranda del Duero, some of which are well known in Spain such as its suckling lamb, cured meats or its local cheese (options for vegetarians, plant based diets or special dietary requirements are also available).
After this flavoursome experience we will drive back to Madrid.
