Have you ever visited Spain’s Ribera del Duero wine region? Did you taste some amazing Protos wine? Have you stayed at the historic Convento Las Claras Hotel? Join me on a journey through Spain’s famous Ribera del Duero wine region.
I arrived in Penafiel via Madrid which is a nice two hour ride from the Spanish capital. I was excited to visit the region again after a seven year absence. The purpose of my journey was to research the area for World Travelers Today’s new Madrid & Ribera del Duero Wine Tour. The month of October is a busy time of year in the area due to the harvest and wineries were crowded with visitors and locals alike. Luckily, I was able to visit several local wineries and taste some delicious red wine.
Historical sites will always be apart of my journeys and this area is rich in history; from Penafiel Castle to the ancient Roman amphitheater in Clunia the area is an historians playground. I was able to visit a few churches and century old bodegas that have a history all their own.
Check out my video to partake in wine tasting at several wineries along the golden mile, eat delicious meats at an Asador restaurant, and discover history all around you.
