There are several superb options for lunch. Depending on the winery visited in the morning, you’ll either have a light, picoteo style lunch in the winery, or dine in a charming regional restaurant.

Following lunch, it’s on to an afternoon of culture. You’ll tour the impressive Peñafiel Castle, a XIV century castle which looks like an enormous stone ship anchored on the castilian plateau, and then peruse the modern wine museum located within the castle’s southern keep. You´ll wander through Peñafiel and stop for a coffee in the town´s unusual El Coso plaza.

After exploring Peñafiel, you’ll check in to your luxurious hotel. You’ll have a chance to relax and enjoy a glass of wine on your balcony overlooking the Duero or go for a quiet walk along the river.

Dinner will be on your own in the hotel’s excellent restaurant.
