We are going to Bodegas La Mejorada. A young winery that has used the Monastery of la Mejorada to build their facilities.

As time goes by we realize that behind any good wine there is a nice story. Behind Bodegas la Mejorada is the story of the Monastery of La Mejorada. This Monastery was founded on the XV th century. Christopher Columbus came here to write his memorial in 1497. Juan Padilla, one of the Comuneros captains that dared to fight against the Spanish Emperor Charles the 5th is also buried in here. We are very closed to Medina del Campo that played a key role on the Comunera rebellion against the Emperor.

The first vineyards of this winery were planted in 1999. Now there are 42,5 hectares of vineyard.

The grapes that are planted are Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Malbec.

The most distinctive thing about this winery is that they elaborate red wines in one of the most important areas in Spain of white wine (Rueda and its Verdejo).

When you taste its wines you realize you have in front wines with a great personality and character.

All its wines are aged in barrel of medium toast French Oak.

These are the wines: Las Cercas, Las Norias, Villalar and Villalar Oro.

After the visit we go to Segovia. There we will have tapas and wines on the most representative “mesones”  of the town.

And then we will have a guided visit to Segovia. I am sure that this visit will please not only to the people who have never been in Segovia than to these who have already been. We try to introduce in our visits some surprises that will make a greater experience.

We will try to end the tour with a nice sunset from a priviledged place where there is probably the best view of Segovia.
