History and Culture
Rueda Wine Route -within Rueda Designation of Origin- is located in the heart of Castilla y León, and it is extended across the left bank of the Duero River.
This route includes mainly part of the province of Valladolid and also a little part of Ávila and Segovia, and currently consists of 13 towns which offer an obvious proof of tourism and historic wealth of this viticulture region par excellence. The particular weather conditions and the orographical characteristics of its “terroir” make this area more than favorable for wine cultivation –specially for the native grape called “Verdejo”-, and give an unique and inimitable personality to all its wines.
Its viticulture origins date from the 11th century, and from then until now, grapevine care and wine producing have provided a culture and a tradition to this area. Both are reflected in all the aspects of its personality, from its people to its artistic manifestations, without forgetting gastronomy, which also plays an important role.
It is an essential travel for those people who want to explore new emotions, always focused on wine and its environment.
