We propose to start as usual with a visit to a winery that belongs to a group that is gaining attention worldwide. We refer to the Matarromera Group. This winery is just 2 miles from Medina del Campo. The Matarromera Group is one of the groups that is doing a better job in Wine International sales.
The commitment of this group in the DO of Rueda is Bodegas Emina. There we will taste 3 of their wines. Its Verdejo, its Gewurztraminer, its Heredad de Emina Chardonnay and/or Emina Crianza 12 months (red).
From there we go to have tapas and wines in Avila and visit its town. For those who do not know Avila, the view of its wall in perfect conditions is an unforgettable spectacle for years to come. And for those who have already been. Visiting that town may allow you learn a lot about the middle age in Castilla. Our Middle Age could be considered the richest of the whole Europe.
Spain has been invaded for centuries. We have for this reason a lot of influences from many different people. We were lucky that the king Philip the 2nd decided to put the capital of Spain in Madrid. Towns as Avila remain for this reason as they were 5007600/700 years ago.
No matter you are Spanish, American, Japanese or Russian I recommend you not to miss it because the experience is going to be exciting.
