One of the Spanish wine route is done in Ribera del Duero certificate of origin. It is one of the best wine regions in the world. And we do not say it, it won this award (Wine Star Award) in 2012, at a gala in New York organized by the wine magazine Wine Enthusiast.
This certificate of origin includes part of the provinces of Valladolid, Burgos and Soria, housing more than 200 wineries. As it is impossible to talk about all, we indicate below the wineries that have caught our attention in the area of Burgos and enjoy this Spanish wine route.
- Portia winery: It is one of the references of the Ribera del Duero (and Spain) architecture level. Its spectacular building, designed by Sir Norman Foster, is a reference in the area. Although it is a younger winery, it is already reaping awards and honors to its work. The 2007 Portia Prima wine was served at the 2010 Nobel prize party.
- Viña Pedrosa winery: A reference for the quality of its wines and its French-style wine cellar (“Chateau”). In addition, in our modest opinion, the wine special reserve of 2014 is one of the best wines of the Ribera del Duero.
- Pradorey: It is one of the wineries with greater strength in the Ribera del Duero. Not only nationally, we can attest that your wines can be purchased in a number of countries. We were able to buy several bottles in Lima (Peru)!
- Condado de Haza winery: It belongs to the Fernández Rivera family (Pesquera group). Its facilities have a new cellar in the style of a French “chateau”. In addition, the quality of their wines is more than guaranteed.
- Torremilanos winery: It is one of the oldest wineries in the area. It produces wines of all kinds, including biodynamic and organic wines. Also, if you want to rest in the area, you have a spectacular hotel where you can stay.
- Nabal winery: Although it is a young winery from the Ribera del Duero (opened 6 years ago), it has all the experience of the Navarro Balbás family and its good work in the Arlanza certificate of origin. His wines are increasingly known in Burgos and nearby provinces.
- Imperial winery: Winery that stands out for making a wine with native grapes from well-worked and quality areas. Its commercial brand is Abadía de San Quirce.
- Lopez Cristobal winery: Small winery but with a multitude of awards since its founding at the end of the 80s. In addition to the classic Roble, Crianza and Reserva, it also has author wines in its catalog.
But not everything in Spanish wine route are wineries. Aranda de Duero, riparian capital in the province of Burgos, is famous for its lamb in a wood oven accompanied by the best wine in the area. A luxury!
Also, if you dare to wine tourism in mid-August (from Wednesday 7 to Sunday 11) and you like music, you can enjoy one of the best indie festivals in Spain: Sonorama (Aranda de Duero, Burgos province).
