Tourists tasting wine in a winery

Zamora Wine Route

Villanueva de Campeán


The Zamora Wine Route, in Castile and Leon, is perfect to enjoy traditional wine-producing wineries that still preserve their intended use. In addition to signing up for different wine tourism activities, visitors can explore perfectly preserved spaces that maintain the essence of the past, with monuments ranging from the 11th-century Romanesque to the 20th-century Modernism. Also, a section of the Vía de la Plata, walked by countless pilgrims every year, runs along this Wine Route. We also recommend gazing at the typically Castilian landscape, where the cereal fields alternate with the centuries-old vineyards of the Land of Wine. And of course, you have to savour the area's typical gastronomy, which results from the knowledge of craftspeople and the experience of farmers and ranchers.

What are the wines like?

This area is ideal to grow vines, and the production of high-quality wine has always brought economic sustenance. The D.O. Tierra del Vino de Zamora provides the geographical borders for the Zamora Wine Route, where winters are very cold and summers are dry and hot. These conditions lead to the predominance of varieties such as Castilian Malvasia, Muscatel, Verdejo and Godello (white wines). Red wines include La Tinta del Pais and Tempranillo, an essential variety.

What I can find

Depending on who you travel with, you can choose from different experiences. For example, if you travel as a family, you can enjoy activities such as "Chocolate Barrels" or "The Magic of Wine". For couples, there are others such as "Delight of Kings" or "Sensory Rest". And for friends, "Encounter on the Route" or "Rest and Emotions". The environment also invites you to spend the night in beautiful rural accommodation and do outdoors sports with experiences such as "The Cycle Route". Those that prefer culture and heritage can sign up for "Tradition, Romanesque and Modernism". And, naturally, the area is perfect for agro-industrial tourism with restaurants, workshops, meetings with the craftspeople, product tasting from the factories themselves, tastings in wineries... Foods such as bread, sweets, cheeses, cured meats and sausages and vegetables such as the Fuentesauco chickpea are examples of traditional cuisine.
