Some of Spain’s most celebrated red wine comes from the demarcated region of Ribera del Duero (wriberadelduero.es), including the country’s best-known and most expensive wine, Vega Sicilia. Around 170 wineries are found along the Duero, with many of the bogedas concentrated between Peñafiel and Aranda del Duero, 40km to the east. If you’d like to make winery visits (not all are open for tours, including Vega Sicilia), the comprehensive website is a good place to start – some wineries require advance reservations, though many have shops that are open to casual buyers mornings and afternoons. Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez (wpesqueraafernandez.com) makes its fabulous Tinto Pesquera at Pesquera de Duero, 4km north of Peñafiel, while the acclaimed Señorio de Nava (wsenoriodenava.es) is based at Nava de Roa, 13km to the east.
