A visit to Bodegas Portia is something shocking. An impact as big as the one we had  when we visited the winery designed by Frank Gehry in La Rioja (Marqués de Riscal) I was so impressed  that since then you can see the image of the terrace of the restaurant of Marques de Riscal with the stunning village of El Ciego behind.

When I visited Bodegas Portia I had the same impression than in Marques de Riscal, except that since then I have visited many wineries and I appreciate even more when I see something extraordinary. This sensation of being amazed begins since you approach the winery, when you look at it from the outside. But it is even more impressive when you look at it on the inside. When you are in their facilities you may think that you have been transferred  to the Egyptian pyramids of. They transmit you a sense of inmensity and greatness.

When you visit this winery you realize about the growing importance of arquitrecture in the world of wine. Architecture is becoming a very useful tool of communication to transmit quality, originality, good taste, personality. We live in the world of Internet and in one unique global world market. An image was worth more than a thousand words. Now, with internet an image is worth more than 1000 times 1000 words. Architecture and wine are closely related.

I am sure  that Norman Foster is very proud of his work on this winery. Y have been told that he was paid 5 MM euros for this work. And I say that he deserves this amount of money.

The winery belongs to the Faustino Group. His wines are as good as they appear to be. A very high quality. When somebody goes to an striking winery it is hard to forget. In this case I would say it is impossible to forget.

Bodegas Portia is like a real slap in the face. As hard as I experienced visiting Marques de Riscal in Rioja, designed by the famous Frank Gehry, the architect that designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The impact was so hard for me that since I have as an image as a back screen on my twitter account of the terrace Marques de Riscal cafeteria in contrast with the amazing village of El Ciego.

It just happened the same with Bodegas Portia, with the difference that I have visited many wineries on the way. And I got dazzled. When you are getting close to the winery you already feel you are going to see something unusual.

When you enter you realize that what there is inside is much better than the outside. I would say it’s a pharaonic work.

Every day architecture and wine are more related.

And Norman Foster wanted to make his mark here. They say his fee was 5 MM euros for this work. And I say they are worth.

This is a winery from the Faustino Group. This group is a high quality wines warranty. We will taste 2 of their wines which are at the level of the winery.

Its hard to forget a visit to any winery in general. In this case I would it is almost impossible. 

When we finish the tour of the winery we will take the winebus and arrive in 50 minutes to Sepulveda, an amazing city with a very original square. Lunch would not cost more than 22 euros.

We would do a tour of the city (its history is very interesting)

And then we would go back to Madrid in order to arrive at 20h.

Can it be a better plan for this day in Madrid? I doubt it. As a friend says, a “planazo for being well fed and drunk”.

This is the program of the day:

10,30 h Departure from Madrid (Plaza del Conde de Casal)

12,30 h Visit to Bodegas Portia, in Utile de Guzmán and tasting 2 wines.

14 h End of the visit

14,45 h Having lunch in Sepúlveda (No more than 22 euros, not included in the tour price)

16,30h Guided tour to Sepúlveda

18,30 h Departure to Madrid.

20 h Arrival in Madrid.

El Winebus en Bodegas Portia y Peñaranda de Duero, Sábado 15 de Diciembre.

Posted on

Bodegas Portia es como un auténtico bofetón en toda la cara. Tan gordo como el que experimenté visitando Marqués de Riscal en Rioja, diseñada por Frank Gehry, el mismo arquitecto que diseñó el Museo Gugenheim de Bilbao. El impacto fue para mí tan fuerte que desde entonces tengo como fondo de pantalla de mi cuenta de Twitter la terraza de la cafetería de Marqués de Riscal en contraste con el alucinante pueblo de El Ciego.

Con Bodegas Portia me ha ocurrido lo mismo con la diferencia de que llevo un porrón de bodegas por el camino. Me ha dejado flipado. Por fuera ya te va avisa que vas a ver  algo fuera de lo normal. Cuando entras te das cuenta de que su interior supera con creces su exterior. Se trata de una obra “Faraónica”. Cada día está más relacionada la arquitectura con el vino. Y Norman Foster ha querido dejar aquí su sello. Dicen que cobró 5 MM de euros por este trabajo. Y yo digo que están bien pagados. Se trata de una bodega del grupo Faustino. Decir Grupo Faustino en vinos es garantía de alta calidad en sus vinos. Degustaremos dos de sus vinos, que están al nivel de su bodega. En dos palabras: fan- tásticos. Es difícil olvidarse de la visita a una bodega en general. En este caso yo diría que es casi imposible.

Bueno, pues todo esto dentro de una bodega donde elaboran vinos del grupo Faustino. Decir Grupo Fasutino en vinos es garantía de alta calidad en sus vinos. Degustaremos dos de sus vinos, que están al nivel de su bodega. En dos palabras: fan- tásticos. Es difícil olvidarse de la viisita a una bodega pero de ésta yo diría que es casi imposible.

Comeremos en Aranda de Duero en un lugar donde hay unas tapas que quitan el hipo. (a escote) Lo que sí es seguro que las tapas y el vino en este mesón no superan los 20 euros de coste (No incluido en el precio de la excursión).Y luego nos vamos a Peñaranda de Duero en la que vamos a hacer una visita guiada de la ciudad. Esta ciudad goza de muy diversos edificios emblemáticos. Por ejemplo la Colegiata, el Castillo y la Herrería de José Cerezo. Probablemente, y digo probablemente veamos estos edificios porque uno sabe como arranca un winebus pero puede haber pequeñas variaciones en el programa.

¿A qué esperas para apuntarte?

Te esperamos.

10,15 h Salida de Madrid Plaza del Conde de Casal

12,30 h Visita Bodegas Portia, en Utiel de Guzmán. Degustación de dos de sus vinos

14 h Fin de la visita.

14,30 h De tapas por Aranda de Duero. (Con toda seguridad no más de 20 euros) (No incluido en el precio de la excursión)
