with the vineyards
An outing on horseback through the vineyards of Ribera del Duero, and a unique wine tasting
There’s a proposal for a different way to see the vineyards and estate of the abbey lands of Abadía de Retuerta. A memorable experience in which you have the pleasure of riding along the banks to the Duero River on horseback, enjoying nature at its best and catching the aroma of the vineyards close by, under centennial trees, discovering firsthand all the history and secrets of this renowned wine estate. A unique chance to see something incredible.
During your tour you’ll make some essential stops at the extraordinary Hedge Museum, designed to showcase the sculptures of internationally recognized contemporary German artist Ulrich Rückriem.
Then you’ll continue your tour of the estate, passing across the bridge over the famous Monks’ Orchard, following the course of the Durius to finish off around the Fuentes Claras and Pradera del Convento.
You can also tour the interior of the wine-cellar, finding out about the process of wine-growing and the secrets of wine-making possessed here, resulting in outstanding quality wines. As a luxury accompaniment and final note of this fantastic visit, you’ll enjoy a commented wine tasting in the presence of an expert sommelier from the estate.
Don’t forget to bring riding clothes and something comfortable to kick around in.
