El sábado 19 Julio visitaremos Bodegas Prado Rey, en Rueda y Avila.
This winery belongs to the Prado Rey group, with wineries in Rioja, Ribera de Duero and Rueda.
On this case we will visit its winery in Rueda.
That is what they say about themselves:
Within an ambitious expansion project of the PradoRey group, the winery started in 2007. Ant they did it with a concrete objective, to get high quality white wines with using new techniques and the innovative technology in the market. These techniques allow extract maximum aromas and flavours of Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc in Rueda. They use pioneer systems in Rueda, like the “Boreal” or the process of cooling the must with CO2, which controls the temperature and enhances that the grape matains on the best condition.
The wines that are marketed are Prado Rey Verdejo, PR3 Barricas and Prado Rey Sauvignon Blanc Seco.
During the visit we will taste 3 wines made in this winery and the group.
From there we will go to Avila to have wines and tapas. There is only one hour distance. Arriving to Avila seems as if you went back on time for a thousand years because Avila might be the medieval town best conserved in the whole Europe. Before arriving you know you are getting into a very special place with perfectly maintained medieval walls.
It will be a great pleasure to look around in such a beautiful town and have the best tapas and wines from the region. We are going to do there one of the best pleasures when coming to Spain which is going to have tapas, that means to visit 4 or 5 tabernas in which we will have the tapas paired with the wines of Castilla y León area.
