We are going again to a winery in Rueda. We are going to Grupo de Bodegas Yllera which is an spectacular winery. It is a double visit actually. On the one hand a visit to the facilities of winemaking of white wine of Rueda DO and then the red Yllera. Both wines are excepctional. And if we add to that, a spectacular winery and an a very attractive speech, the result is wonderful. Bodegas del Grupo Yllera are pioneers in many things in the world of wine and we will realize about it during the visit.
The wines are pretty good but the winery is at the same level. We will visit the modern facilities they have 1 mile from Rueda, to turn back afterwards to visit the old winery, just in the middle of town with a wonderful story about “EL Hilo de Ariadna” We go down 20 meteres deep to relate the Greek mythology to the world of wine.
After the visit we will go to Medina del Campo to have some tapas (fixed price (optional), no more than 20 euros) And after lunch we will see the Castle of la Mota and the Museum “de las Ferias” . We are what we are because in the Middle Age there were cities like Medina del Campo that that facilitated trade. On the Museum “de las Ferias” they will explain it to us very well.
