The entity, through several of its partners, offers interesting proposals to enjoy a getaway for all tastes from 7 to 16 April
Impressive religious events, such as Holy Week in Medina del Campo, declared of International Tourist Interest, coexist in the Route of the Wine of Rueda with an endless number of activities in which culture, heritage or gastronomy are intermingled with the star element: The wine of the DO Rueda, thus articulating different and very diverse proposals to enjoy. The Rueda Wine Route is an ideal choice for an Easter break in the city, with its associated establishments - wineries, restaurants, lodgings, specialized shops or thermal centers.
If for some reason the Wine Route of Rueda is characterized by knowing how to accept under its offer the most varied and attractive proposals that show the cultural, natural, artistic, gastronomic and, of course, oenological heritage of the territory of the provinces of Valladolid , Ávila and Segovia, by which it extends. A wealth that allows you to offer alternatives of leisure and culture throughout the year and that, at Holy Week, has a culminating moment with the celebration of exciting religious manifestations in their villages.
For this reason, several partners of the Rueda Wine Route have designed a series of plans for all the public that extend from April 7 to 16, in which travelers can experience different experiences in the area with friends, family or In pairs, which will be the perfect complement to the great attractions already offered by this land. Bodega Campo Elíseo The Rueda Wine Route tastes green, and the wines of the D.O. Wheel and the wineries that produce them.
Campo Elíseo has also thought of Easter travelers and has organized a visit to its facilities - modern grape reception and tour through the three subterranean galleries of the XVII century - which will end with a vertical tasting of verdejo and a tasting -presentation of its first rosé ‘Valentín Rosé‘ that will be accompanied by local artisan cheeses and Iberian ham. The price of the activity, which will be about two hours, is 12 euros.
Bodega Emina Rueda Wine tourism is undoubtedly one of the tourist attractions of the moment.

The initiative, which is planned for all Easter from 12.00 hours, consists of a visit to the garden of white grape varieties, a tour of the winery, a tasting of three wines with chocolate and a tasting of two Oliduero oils Price of 13 euros.

The tasting room will be the scene of the game that will test the participants‘ sense of smell, who will be able to obtain ‘Valdecuevas coins‘ for each success and then redeem them for a prize, just before tasting two wines to put into practice what they have learned.
