The Valbuena Abbey in the heart of Ribera del Duero
There are so many things to do in Ribera del Duero besides drinking amazing good wines!!! For instance to visit the Monasterio de Valbuena (Valbuena Abbey) in the heart of Ribera del Duero, very, very closed to what has been considered the golden mile because of its superb vineyards.
It is an Abbey that was first founded in 1143. It has been rehabilitated and converted into a five stars Hotel with Spa but a new name called Castilla termal Monasterio de Valbuena. You might know that wine consumption on this area existed before the romans came to Spain, but after the fall of the Roman Empire the knowledge of growing grapes and making wine was in Ribera del Duero on the monks risponsibility in Abbeys like Valbuena Abbey. To listen to this story in this abbey just before or after having visited a winery is an experience you should not miss.
Normally when you visit wineries and drink wine you get at the end exhausted and a very nice way of getting it is to be in a luxury place with an appealing spa.
When you go and visit wineries the pleasure is on tasting wines and listening to nice stories in slow motion.
The pleasure in Spa is that time might not go slow. You would say that times goes so slow that you might think it has stopped. But it is important you do it in the right place.
