Wine tourism, with the opportunity to discover the world of wine at source, is becoming fashionable. So much so that today, alongside the visits to vineyards and the discovery of the wine-making process a host of additional activities are on offer: rural accommodation, restaurants, bicycle rides through the vineyards, wine-therapy, and of course delicious tastings which delight your senses with a feast of aromas and flavors. A weekend spent in this way can combine the enjoyment of nature and the countryside with the appreciation of one of the finest foods our culture has developed. We recommend visiting the wineries of Ribera del Duero in Castilla y Leon, a young appellation of origin, home to a powerful and elegant wine, which has received high praise from the most prestigious wine experts. This region houses some of the great classics in the international world of wine, including Vega Sicilia, as well as wineries with luxurious hotels and restaurants and museums.
