We are making a tour to Bodegas Solterra in Roa in Ribera de Duero (DO).
That is what their owners say about their project:
We are in the foot of Cuesta Manvirgo, from where you can see an incredible 360 º panorama of Ribera de Duero. According to the legend, the place was inhabited by vestals, whose rites were seeking fertility and protection to these lands.
The winery is perfectly integrated into the landscape. Its green roof, wich armonizes with the surrounding vineyards, is a uniqueness among the other wineries covered with the traditional colour tile. In fact, the brick makers of the area call it “green Solterra”
On the attractions of visiting Solterra is our vineyard improvement project by implantation of aromatic and medicinal plants. This is an ambitious work. A pioneer in the which has been supported by la Junta de Castilla y León and CEDETI.
As you see on the image you can find enclosed we have a very nice tasting room, equipped with panel flavours, where we will do the tasting of 3 wines.
After the tasting we will go to Sepulveda where we have closed a menu of 25 euros. The specialty of Sepulveda is lamb. Highly recommended. If you decide to have lamb will be an additional 5 euros cost per person.
On the afternoon we will make a guided visit to Sepulveda. Sepulveda is a wonderful town that it is magnificently preserved. But if you listen to the story that there is behind you get in love with the town forever.
After this guided tour and depending on the number of attendees we can decide to visit “Las Hoces del Duratón. For those who have not been yet to emphasize two things: as you are approaching to them they will show it little by little, and when you get to the end you realize you are in a little Colorado Great Canyon like. We will probably see some vultures.
