Rioja - Ribera de Duero - Salamanca
Romantic castle hotels from start to finish
Walk or cycle amongst the vines. Visit Laguardia, Peñafiel, Torredesillas & many more.
Don't miss monumental Salamanca, Spain’s greatest university city
Prehistoric dolmens to ultra-modern bodegas.
Hop from castle to castle and wend your way through Spain’s most prestigious wine regions, names to conjure with Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro and Rueda. Visit the great wine centres of Laguardia, Haro, Logroño, Peñafiel and Valladolid and ‘drink in’ the traditions and beautiful landscapes.
It’s not all about the wine – authentic castles, each different and charmingly restored, will be your home at each stop and you’ll find plenty to visit from historic villages to the monumental university city of Salamanca and plenty more besides.
The example route takes one week but you can do as little, or as much, as you like.
