A very unique building designed by British architect Richard Rogers, who also designed the new Terminal 4 of Barajas airport in Madrid and the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, France. You must see this if you are an architecture lover.
I went with some students and we all totally enjoyed the experience. Great views, great wine and great
presentation by Belen. Was great to be able to communicate with someone who actually speaks English and can explain the wine process properly..

You should definitely visit Bodegas Peñafalcón if you are going through the Wine Ribera del Duero. It is at the foot of Penafiel Castle (which houses the Museum of Wine) and also has its own museum of old tools and vintage artefacts. It is a journey that will take you no more than half an hour but, during this time, you will learn how the vineyards work and realize that, in the end, not much has changed since Ribera del Duero wine was first made. You can taste it in the wine cellar and you can also buy some. By the way, there is also a large area that can be used for meals, celebrations and corporate events.
The Bodegas Pinna Fidelis is in Ribera del Duero and a visit there offers guests the opportunity to taste the wines produced in their facilities, despite the fact that they're relatively young. The winery was founded in 2001 and at Pinna Fidelis they've managed to carve a niche market among wine score lists. From Tuesday to Friday mornings and afternoons you can come to visit them, and on Saturday mornings they have two shifts available. Depending on what you're looking for during your visit the prices vary, so it's a good idea to book a reservation in advance and tell them what you want to taste at the end of the tour.
If you pass by Penafiel and continue towards Valladolid, after only a few kilometers you will find this young winery which has developed Miros and Miros de Ribera. Barely a decade old, at this winery everything revolves around wine. The tour features a visit to the facilities where they make their wines, with a wine tasting session and if you dare, you can even enjoy the local cuisine in the on-site restaurant. Visits are from Monday to Friday in the morning on Saturdays by appointment. It's best to call ahead if you plan to visit at the weekend.
This winery provides great information on the manufacture of their wines: Carramimbre and Altamimbre. It is located off the N-122, just a few miles from Penafiel in the direction of Valladolid. As always, it is best to let them know in advance that you are visiting, either through a phone call or sending an email to visits @ bodegaspingon. com.
