Vineyard Trail - Ruta del Vino
Central Spain Spain

Join us on a special ride through the famous wine harvest area of Ribera del Duero in Castile.
During the 1990's the region developed into one of the best wine producers of Spain and now showcases some of the country's best wines. The area has 28.000 acres in grape production and is home to over 180 vineyards- over 8000 wine producers buy their grapes from this area!
Our horseback tour allows you to explore its bountiful landscapes while you taste some of these classic and delicioua wines.
The first two days of the ride focus on the beauty of the nature park, Hoces del Rio Duraton. Situated to the northeast of Segovia, it has many great archaeological and historical riches as well as natural splendor. The water of the River Duratón is dammed after passing Sepúlveda, in a canyon with areas that have astounding drops of over 100 metres. Impressive and deep gorges have been carved out by the river's forces in these limestone lands, where a great number of birds of prey nest, like the striking Griffon Vulture.
The next four days we will follow along the river of the same name - Ribera del Duero - and visit the nearby vineyards. The soft dandy trails of the high plateau are the perfect place explore on horseback and of course the cultural and culinary experiences along the way play a big role during these days. We visit castles and abbeys, stop at the best bodegas (wine tasting rooms and cellars) and enjoy the beautiful wines and cuisine of the region. Savor typical regional dishes like the juicy lamb roasts and the full flavored sheep cheese. This trip is certainly designed for lovers of fine wines and delicious foods!
Accommodations are in very nice hotels and country estates. To make it a bit more relaxing we only move lodgings every second day (a total of 4 different accommodations) – so no need to pack your bags every morning. You will have breakfast and dinner at your accommodations and lunch is typically at one of the bodegas or a sumptuous picnic alongside the trail.  A wonderfully appetizing way to explore central Spain!
