Their underground bodegas transport visitors to another time, to the origins of wine. This route is comprised of all sorts of bodegas and many of them organise guided tours where anyone interested has the privilege of learning about this world from the experts.

Couple at a wine tasting


The Ribera del Duero Wine Route offers a wide variety of wines from rosés to young reds and young oak-aged wines, as well as Crianzas, Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to enter the wine universe, or anyone that has already started and wants to learn about new styles. The bodegas on this route organise wine tastings led by professionals that delight both amateurs and experts.

Of course, the wine simply must be paired with typical dishes from the region such as roasted lamb and suckling pig, cured meats and sausages and legume casseroles.
