Program

The Duero River is the source and spring of many of the most interesting wine appellations in Spain. On this tour, Bonito Norte Viajes will put your nose, taste, and focus on Ribera de Duero and the neighboring D.O.s.

Bonito Norte Viajes have never experienced a more terroir-obsessed wine culture in Spain than in Ribera de Duero. It was here the Spanish comeback began in the 90s with Parkers discovery of Don Alejandro Fernandez Pesquera, Vega Sicilias Único, Pingus, and more.
