With this tour you'll visit Rueda, an important area where you can find out the most popular white wine in Spain. Here you will believe that you are visiting a typical western village with a single high street! The kind of wine they ellaborate here is called "Vino Blanco con uvas de verdejo” (White vine with verdejo grapes). This grape is so special and once you taste it, you will not forget its flavour and taste.
Wine is the most impressive thing that visitors will find out in Rueda and everyone can see the underground caves that were built there in the last centuries. According to the experts, the local wine producers only had this option in order to keep its final products in safe places during the whole year by digging into the earth and having the wine resting there before bottling. New and improved techniques were introduced later, but the majority of the wineries were closed in the 50s and 60s and the few that remained in the same place bought the undergorund caves to those people who sold their properties to the rest of the producers. Nowadays, visitors can see some endless galleries that are owned by two of the most important wineries in Rueda.
In addition, there are several stunning medieval places near Rueda such as Tordesillas, Ávila and Medina del Campo. Its cultural legacy is outstanding and a large number of people will learn more useful facts about Spain and its old kingdoms by visiting some old castles, cathedrals, churches and other relevant monuments.
