Our Ribera del Duero wine tour and spa Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena perfectly combines wine tasting and relaxation. The 5* hotel Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena is a true hidden gem nestled in the golden mile of the Ribera del Duero. The hotel boasts a range of luxurious facilities and is the perfect base to explore the renowned vineyards of the Ribera del Duero.
Upon arrival in the region, check into your preferred room grade at the hotel. The remainder of the afternoon will be free for you to settle in and explore your lovely surroundings. In the evening, a delicious tasting dinner paired with wines will be served in the hotel’s gastronomic restaurant Converso II.
After breakfast on day two, enjoy a private spa experience with exclusive use of the Chapel of San Pedro. Known as the treasure chapel and located on the south side of the Monastery of Santa María de Valbuena, you can rest and relax in a private environment, surrounded by Gothic frescoes. The staff will be able to make recommendations on the perfect route to follow in this privatised spa area. The hotel’s spa also has a large public hydrotherapy area that can be used at your convenience.
You will then have some free time for lunch. In the afternoon, a tour and tastings at a local winery will be arranged for you. The winery will be within walking distance of your hotel. The evening will be free for you to do as you please.
After breakfast on day three, you will be met at your hotel by a chauffeured vehicle, which will accompany you throughout the day on a private basis. You will firstly be taken to a Ribera del Duero winery for a full tour of the facilities followed by a tasting session of the estate’s wines. For lunch, a mouth-watering 20-24 course tasting meal paired with wines will be served at Michelin starred Restaurante Ambivium situated on the grounds of the famous Bodega Pago de Carraovejas. Ambivium has its very own organic vegetable garden where vegetables, spices and aromatic herbs are grown to be used in the restaurant’s dishes. The Chef uses local seasonal products to create micro-courses beautifully paired with wines.
You will be taken back to your hotel at the end of the day. The evening will be free for you to do as you please. After a leisurely breakfast on day four, check out of the hotel.
