Destination Cities

Rueda

Rueda

River Duero starts in the mountains south of Rioja and flows through Spain into Portugal where it is called Douro. Rueda and Toro are two of the Designations of Origin from the Castilla y León region layed on the banks of the River Duero that is home to many other wine regions spread along its full length. Rueda is home to the much-celebrated Spanish white wine while Toro is the home to one of the most full-bodied red wines of Spain. The proximity of these two regions does not stop them from being so different from one another and in thus, ensuring your travel through their vine lands will be full of adventure.

Situated in-between Toro and Ribera del Duero, Rueda differs from these other two DOs as it focuses on white wine production. Rueda is a region of a plain patchwork of vineyards home to a rare indigenous white grape called Verdejo. Over the centuries this land was fought by the kings of Castile and Aragon, and the countryside is scattered with medieval castles.

Toro

Toro

In the middle of Castille y Leon, a land of wheat fields, feudal castles and Romanesque churches, Toro is a fascining historic town. Its strategic location gave rise to it being a site of conflict during all the Middle Age, a court of kings and the capital of the province in the 19th century. The legend has it that the medieval clock tower in Toro was built with a mortar that was made with cement, sand, and the local red wine. Seemingly, as far as the townsfolk were concerned, there was so much Tinta de Toro on hand that they saw it pointless to walk downhill of few hundred metres to the Duero River banks to collect water to moisten the paste.

Detailed Itinerary

Rueda arrival
day 1

Rueda - arrival

Visit to Ramon Bilbao winery in Rueda
The quality of the wines of Ramon Bilbao is not to demonstrate. And its Rueda bottles help us understand why "verdejo" is so popular throughout the country, fresh, delicious and easy to drink.

The visit begins in the vineyards at the foot of the building, covers all the rooms of elaboration and includes the tasting directly from the barrels, before a commented tasting of the wines produced on the spot in the tasting room that overpowers the vineyard.

The experience includes:
- Guided tour from the vineyard to the winery
- Tasting straight from the barrel
- Commented tasting of 4 wines and an assortment of cheeses


Accommodation: Parador de Tordesillas 4*
Ctra. de Salamanca, 5 47100 Tordesillas (Valladolid)

In the city of Tordesillas, a historic crossroads, you will find this ancestral home in the shelter of a dense pine wood and a well-kept garden, in a spot where nature offers the best scenery. The architecture and décor of the house are predominantly Castilian in style. The gardens and other spaces invite visitors to rest and relax in a peaceful atmosphere. You can also enjoy the Turkish bath, hot tub, heated swimming pool, sauna, gym and children's play area, making the Parador your perfect destination.

You won't want to leave Tordesillas without visiting its most emblematic buildings, the Casas del Tratado (Treaty Houses), located on a high spot with a view of the Douro River, next to San Antolín Church. The houses are two connected palaces dating from the 15th and 17th centuries, and they have been declared a site of cultural interest. One of them, the older of the two, was the location of the signing of the famous Treaty of Tordesillas, with which Spain and Portugal divided up the territories of the New World.

There are a number of leisure options available in the area around the city. You will find locations offering karting, paintball and ATVs within just a few kilometers. If you like river-based tourism, you can navigate the Pisuerga River and Catilla Canal, located 45 km away. Another option is winery tourism, as Tordesillas is near four of the most important designations of origin in Spain: Rueda, Toro, Ribera del Duero and Cigales.
