Bodegas Valdubón is located in Milagros, 90 miles from Madrid, in National 1 road. Bodegas Valdubon was founded in 1997 and had its first vintage this year (1997). It belongs to Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin. That means strong wines, ellaborated mainly with tempranillo. They get roundness and elegance when they pass through the barrel. One of its characteristics is that it has a pretty cherry colour, a consistent body and an equilibrated acidity.

Among its projects we should have a few words about Valdubon 10

Made from wines of different vintages; 100% Tinta del País grape varietal entirely hand-picked and crushed within 10 hours after harvesting.

Valdubón 10 was created as a cooperative project between 10 professionals from all sectors in the world of wines to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the winery. It is a lively, clean and bright wine with good colour intensity. Its colour, fire red, is complemented with hints of violet in its meniscus, indicating an excellent barrel-ageing process. It has an initial fresh impression on the nose, rich in primary notes of ripe cherries, strawberries and plums that give way to spiced tones. After evolving on the palate, it has a final roast mocha and chocolate finish. It has an elegant mouthfeel, with a characteristic attack full of fine ripe tannins that provide sufficient structure to fill the palate but without drying or assaulting. Evolves gently after pouring, aided by a lively and balanced acidity. Finally, it has a long and very intense aftertaste. A wine to enjoy.

Best served at: 17-19 ºC

We will go afterwards to have lunch in Riaza. In Riaza everything you eat is gorgeous. But the best thing to do is eating a “Lechazo” (Lamb). We have closed a menu of 25 euros per person (30 euros if you decice to have Lechazo). We will have it in one of the best restaurants of the town.

Pueblos Rojos

After lunch we will make a guided visit to a village representative of “Pueblos Rojos” (Madriguera probably) and one of the Pueblos Negros (El Mullo probably. Then we go to a viewpoint called Piedras Llanas where we can see a spectacular sunset.

I hope you will not miss it.
