64824 written by Ribera del Duero

14/10/2014

ComentarioGreat región Ribera del Duero. I´d like to share some interesting information for those preparing their trip to Ribera del Duero. Most of the vineyard is located in the province of Burgos, though some of the most famous wineries are located near Valladolid.
The most spectacular castles are Peñafiel and Peñaranda de Duero.
As mentioned in the post, Santa Maria de la Vid is a fantastic monastery.
Driving from Madrid is safe. Calculate 2 hours. Food is heavy. Lamb is superb and highly recommended., specially along with wines from Ribera.
