Overview

The historic Don Carlos winery is an underground cellar from the 15th century located in the center of Aranda de Duero. They offer guided tours where they explain everything about this type of wineries. It is also a wine shop, with a large selection of wines from Ribera del Duero (small producers, Vega Sicilia, Pingus ...) They also offer a commented wine tasting. The winery is open for visits from Monday to Saturday: from 11 PM to 2 PM and from 5 PM to 8 PM. Private visits and other activities can be arranged upon request from Monday to Sunday. Aranda is the largest city in the wine region of Ribera del Duero, and is famous for its wines, roast lamb and its underground cellars. Most of them are privately owned and are not open to the public. The Don Carlos winery is an exception, it was restored by its owners and open to the public so that everyone can enjoy this particular construction so popular in Ribera's wine history. During the visit you will feel that you are in the past
