Peñafiel, Madrid and Inland Spain

At the very heart of the Ribera de Duero wine region Peñafiel is surrounded by some of Spain's most prestigious bodegas and makes the perfect base to discover the area.


But it's not all about the wine. The town occupies a strategic position on the Duero river and has an impressive 15th century castle which and dominates the town from its vantage point up on the ridge.


The castle now houses the official wine museum of the Ribera de Duero and offers fine views out over Peñafiel and the Duero valley.


Peñafiel has some fine medieval convents and churches and an unusual square 'El Viejo Coso', with unique wood-faced houses, where bullfights used to be held.


Local specialties are roast suckling lamb (lechazo) and Flor de Esgueva – a local cheese made from sheep's milk.


West of Peñafiel the road to Valladolid is known as the 'Golden Mile' with Protos, Vega Sicilia, Pago de Carrovejas, Hacienda Abascal, Arzuaga, and Abadia Retuerta which is now a 5 star hotel and top-level gastronomic restaurant. Whilst nearer to Curiel are the bodegas of Pesquera and Emilio Moro, in very high demand in recent years.​
