Spanish history lives on in luxurious heritage hotels. There are 900 years of history to soak up at Abadia Retuerta LeDomaine, a former abbey in the wine-producing area of Ribera del Duero in Valladolid, north of Madrid.
You will be a guest in one of the most luxurious hotels in Spain, a place where calmness washes over you on arrival, and where the contemplative mood is helped by a glass of velvety Abadia Retuerta wine looking out over the vineyards at sunset from the comfort of your own room.
The abbey, a celebrated Romanesque building, was founded in 1146 by the Premonstratensian Order. Much of the original structure has been respected — the monks’ former cells are now smart rooms and at the abbey’s grand refectory, now an acclaimed Michelin-starred restaurant with its stone walls and 17th century frieze of the Last Supper.
After a reinvigorating sleep, you will go for a 4×4 private tour of the estate and the vineyards. After a lovely ride through the vines you will learn how wines are produced inside the winery.
A guided wine tasting of Abadia Retuerta’s famous wines at the winery will be the cherry on the cake to an unforgettable experience for a wine aficionado.
