In the small town of Atauta (Soria) there is a very unique valley, an authentic oenological jewel, … A valley in which you can enjoy an authentic wine tourism experience in the Ribera del Duero Soriana among pre-phylloxera vineyards.
VISIT TO THE VINEYARD
The visit begins at the winery with a brief explanation of the site. Afterwards, a tour of the vineyard will begin, during which the following stops will be made:
VIEWPOINT OF OLD CELLARS:
The first stop will be at the viewpoint of the village from where you can see the old neighborhood of the wineries of the small town of Atauta. Considered an Asset of Cultural Interest since 2017 and from where all the winemaking tradition of the area starts.
Next, High Pointa 130-year-old vineyard located at an altitude of almost 1,000 meters, one of the highest in the region. Ribera del Duero at the height limit for the cultivation of the vine as a result of adverse weather conditions in the valley.
VISIT TO LA ROZA, A 165 YEAR OLD VINEYARD:
And finally, La Roza, a vineyard located in a clearing in a forest of oak and scrubland with vines surrounded by aromatic plants that are 190 years old. It was doomed to disappear until, from Bodegas Dominio de Atauta, a recovery plan was initiated to maintain this wine heritage. During the visit we will learn how this vineyard has been brought back to life and we will see these centenary vines up close.
VISIT TO THE WINERY AND TASTING
After visiting the Atauta Valley, we will continue with a brief tour of the winery to learn first-hand how we work. Once you have seen the winemaking process, we will move on to tasting.
The tasting is divided into two parts, in the two Dominio de Atauta projects. First, the La Celestina project with a style faithful to Ribera del Duero: La Celestina Crianza and La Celestina Vendimia Seleccionada. And secondly, Dominio de Atauta and Parada de Atauta with a particular style, marked by the vineyards of the Atauta Valley, all accompanied by Manchego cheeses made in Quesería 1605, a small artisan cheese factory located in Herencia, Ciudad Real.
