This morning, you will be transferred to a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, Abadia Retuerta wine estate. A hidden gem for a wine lover among the string of exclusive wine estates found along the Duero river that crosses Northern Spain.

You will go for a 4×4 private tour of the estate and the vineyards. You will enjoy a countryside picnic with local products and wine surrounded by vineyards in one of the most exclusive "terroirs" in Ribera del Duero.

After a lovely ride through the vines you will learn how wines are produced inside the winery followed by a guided wine tasting of Abadia Retuerta's famous wines, an unforgettable experience for a wine aficionado.

You will be transferred a romantic eatery housed in an old farmhouse, La Botica de Matapozuelos, a family-owned Michelin-starred restaurant. You may associate the foraging trend with Nordic cuisine, but this part of Spain has also started weaving in fresh-from-the-forest ingredients like pine. The talented Chef picks pine cones and pine nuts from the surrounding forests and crafts them into its cuisine. Choose from a list of over 150 wines sourced across from Rueda and Ribera del Duero while sampling classic fare like wood-roasted lamb, served alongside more artistic culinary creations like ravioli of rooster with toasted pine nuts.

In the evening you will be driven along the vineyards at the top of a hill where you will discover Peñafiel’s Castle. After a visit of the building you will have the chance to enjoy a glass of wine overlooking a breath-taking sunset over the vineyards.

 You will be then transferred to your hotel at the end of the evening.
