Ribera de Duero is like a never ending road. There is always something new and odd with charm to find. This has happened to us again with Bodegas Pascual in Fuentelcésped. In Fuentelcesped happened what happened in so many villages in Castilla y León on the fifties. We can perceive the difficult decision that many winemakers had to take  when they realized that their way of doing things was not feasable with the new times.

They knew they had 3 alternatives: 1) Leave the activity as they thought they could not addapt to become competitive on the new world that it was coming. 2) Not to take any decision: (the worst decision) We all know that this is a way of making decisions even if you do not want to, because time and money puts you in place. 3) Betting on the future with an important investment to be made. To remove the facilities and create a new winery out of town with the new rules.

At Bodegas Pascual we can again recreate that kind of decisions the had to take. We will visit first the new winery located on the oustskirts of Fuentelcésped. There we will taste 2 of their wines and visit their facilities. Later we will move to the old winery that Bodegas Pascual had in the middle of the village. There we will see some impressive caves at 18, 20 metres below groung with 14º, 15 º Celsius degrees temperature on the whole year. If we are lucky we will have a look at other caves that are open on the village to be visited. On this case they are in rough. If you have already visited the Aranda de Duero caves you can check the difference between raw cellars and others in which they made important investments to make it attractive for the visitors.

After this visit we will go to the pedestrian area of Aranda de Duero to have very nice tapas and drink wine with an amazing ratio price quality. What about quality? They are as good as the ones in the best place in Madrid. Its price? Much, much cheaper, but you will not have to care about price because the price of the tapas and wine are included on the tour.

We will enjoy the pleasure of going to a town that earns its living with wine, wine tourism and gastronomy, of being in a summer night to see wonderful landscapes, drinking wine, having nice tapas, talking with friends and looking at the stars.
