You are invited to enjoy an unforgettable time visiting the world’s largest vineyards; please join our Tour Ruta del Vino. This tour combines traditional first-class rural tourism with an approach to the world of wines. Find out about its origins, the magic of the underground cellars where the wine matures, wine tasting, and ultimately the deeply rooted wine culture.

 

The wine route will mainly cover the three regions of the major protected denominations of origin of the finest Spanish wines.

 

PDO Rioja, comprising the areas of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. PDO Navarra, divided into five areas: Ribera Alta, Ribera Baja, Tierra de Estella, Valdizarbe and Baja Montaña. PDO Castilla y Leon, Ribera del Duero, Toro, Rueda, Cigales and Bierzo. The average temperature expected during this tour is estimated at around 19 °C, an ideal climate so as to fully enjoy both the scenery and the roads.

 

This tour will not only place before you outstanding wines and prestigious wineries, yet also the rich cultural and monumental heritage surrounding the wine culture. The gastronomic offer associated with wine comprises typical regional ingredients and dishes, such as market garden produce prepared in all sorts of ways and creative cuisine based on ancient recipes. And, naturally, an excellent wine.
