Bodegas Neo is one of the most original wineries in the whole Spanish panorama. Its creators were musician before becoming wine makers. They had no tradition in their families in previous generatinos as wine makers though they were born in one of the most important capitals of wine in the world. That is Aranda de Duero.
It is not difficult to understand that a son and grand son of wine makers decides to to get into a such a complex and difficult world as the wine making is. To learn about it since you were born I would say is nearly a must.
These guys have been brave enough, had the commitment and have done things so well and have been lucky enough to have success in this difficult and complex world in 10 years. And they have done it without compromising with their other passion (Music).
You perceive all this since the first minute when you visit its facilities and begin to listen to their story.
They have a professional record studio in its winery. (the only one in the world with this peculiarity). They are also one of the promoters of one the most successful festivals of music in Spain. Sonorama in Aranda de Duero.
So, they have been successful in two fields that apparently have nothing in common. Are they just lucky? My conclusion is that they are good in everything they love to do. And the best of the visit are their wines and their story.
This is a special visit you should not miss.
After the visit we go to Rascafría to visit a charming place. But before that we are going to have lunch in one the best home made food restaurants of the whole sierra madrileña (25 euros). After that we will make a guided visit to an amazing place with a very special guide that knows a lot about forests, animals, birds, etc. Two places we are going to visit are “El Puente del Perdón and la Finca de los Batanes.
