We started on July 4th with our summer schedule. And we started with a hard proposal. We proposed to go to Bodegas Prado Rey and Pedraza in a night of an impressive full moon.

We pretend that the activity that we are going to propose on Saturday July 11 is going to be as good.

The winery we visit is one that does not leave you the same, with stunning caves. We refer to Bodegas Ismael Arroyo. On this winery you can understand the past, the present and the future of the wine of Ribera del Duero. You can see how pretty this winery can be if you  look at this video.

5 centuries ago the only way to preserve wine for the whole year was to dig on the earth.   You could get in the underground the right temperature, humidity, and light that allowed  wine to be in perfect conditions. The problem was the cost of moving wine. That times were really hard. Living was not an easy task,

The sixties came and every wine maker had to take the decision to go on elaborating wine with the news techniques and rules of modern times or leaving the village to work in the big town.

Most of wine makers decided to leave. And the few that stayed added these caves to their patrimony. To look at that final result is a true priviledge.

On the Winebus we say that we wait to listen to the story that is behind before we drink. Because doing so wine does not taste the same. I can testify that the wines of Ismael Arroyo are amazing. Then you visit its caves you have more respect for their wines.

This is what we are going to do on the first part of the tour.

Then we go to Riaza to enjoy of the best Festival Country Music of the whole Spain. It is  called the Huercasa Country Festival, What happens in there you can see it on this. video.

What happens on July 4 and 11 is what happens in the Winebus in summer. Spain is the country of the “fiesta” in the whole world and we want to visit these towns in fiesta with a glass of wine in hand.

Lets chase feasts wherever they are. We have done it in other years and we are going to do i it on this year too.

We say that on the Winebus we are day players but it is not true. That only happens in winter, In summer we are definitely night payers. Nights on the villages on the towns in fiestas are wonderful. Let us show you where they are and join us to enjoy them.

I have been told that not everybody likes country music . If you hate Country music, this is not your tour. You can go on the previous one or the following one. O you may like this music a little bit, That is enough. You are going to have fun, and above all if you have a glass of wine in hand.
