Ribera de Duero Wine Route
Spending 4 nights at the Paradores de Soria, Lerma and Tordesillas means an inevitable incursion into one of the most renowned winegrowing regions of Castilla- León, namely Ribera del Duero. It runs for around one hundred kilometers following the course of the upper reaches of the Douro River, the watercourse responsible for giving the clay soils that sweep away from its banks their unique character. The vines of this region receive an average of 500 liters of rainwater and 2,500 hours of sun per year and there are 11,653 hectares of land under cultivation. The Tinta del País variety of grape gives these wines their typical characteristics. This strong strain of grape is blended with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Albillo varieties and over the past two decades these have combined to produce some of the highest quality wines on the market.
