Just 70 miles north of Madrid we can find one of the most important Spanish winemaking regions, home of the world’s best and most exclusive red wines. Along the banks of the Duero Rivera, lies a plateau full of vineyards and exclusive cellars. This is the ideal place to transform Tinto Fino grapes (the local name for the Tempranillo grape) into exquisitely expressive reds renowned worldwide.
The heart of the Ribera del Duero is the “Milla de Oro” or “Golden Mile”. A short strip of land hugging the Duero River, home of iconic wineries like Vega Sicilia, Pingus, Abadía Retuerta and Mauro.
Wine has been made in the area since the Roman era but it only became widespread with the arrival of monasteries. Although producers like Vega Sicilia have been making world-class wine here for more than a century, the winemaking boom did not come until the late 20th century. These days however, the region has a sealed reputation for outstanding quality and good value.
In this rural region we’ll come across several lovely towns and monuments including medieval cathedrals, Roman-era constructions, fortresses and castles.
Also throughout the region we’ll find the countryside cuisine of central Spain which includes delicious cured ham, flavorful sheep cheeses, roasted lamb and wonderful stews.
