Were we in a horror movie in an isolated old castle of Ribera del Duero?
Medieval Castle in Ribera del Duero

Old castle of Ribera del Duero

No. We were in a wine tour, after having visited a couple of amazing wineries. It was December 28 th. It was a very foggy day in Ribera del Duero. The sun was already gone.

The wise decision would have been to go back to Madrid at that time in such a foggy and dark night but we decided to go to a closed castle (7 kms) that might be lightened. We approached quite slow because of the small visibility. Then we arrived to the castle. My visitors sayed they did not dare to get into there. Maybe there was the devil in there. But we took some courage and we went in. And as we often do we opened a bottle of nice Ribera del Duero and we drank a glass of wine. It was an unforgettable experience. I can assure you that #everythingisbetterwithaglassofwineinhand.

Cheers my friends.

The best price we have when make a new wine tour is that each one of them gives us with little details that make the tour an adventure even for us.


The horror movie in the Ribera

Maybe it is our attitude knowing that we are going to do what we are going to do that makes us living the activity with our five senses.

There was no need to go to the castle. Maybe it was 18,15 h in Christmas time. It was night and very foogy. You might not see more than 10 metres from you. But we did it. And we felt a little bit like Indiana Jones, but, on this case in the middle of Rigera del Duero. I do not know why but I told my visitors if they wanted to see an old castle.

But I understand why they said yes. You can not say no when they tell you to go to castle of the 10th century which is only 5 miles away. And what happened was much higher than our own expectatives.

It was a beautiful an unforgettable experience
