Depart from central Madrid in the morning, continuing for approximately 2 hours to reach the winery which will host your tasting. You’ll reach the winery around mid-day.
During your time at the winery, you’ll discover a variety of vintages as you savor a cross-section of the red wines raised in this famous region. You’ll also get a few tips about Ribera del Duero’s history as a wine region and learn about the typical wine styles produced by local winemakers. Then take a break for lunch in mid-afternoon (at your own expense), offering you the opportunity to pick a local restaurant where you can sample some of the typical cuisine of the Castile and León area.
Following your lunch break, you’ll have the opportunity to select from a number of potential activities in the area starting in the late afternoon. Depending on what you decide, you might check out any number of charming medieval towns or ancient castles. Among the options are Peñafiel, Pedraza, Aranda de Duero, Segovia, Riaza, and Peñaranda, among other choices. You’ll return back to Madrid in the evening.
