The magic of Bodegas Protos

Published: Thu Mar 31 2011

Spring is in the air at PROTOS. If you want to welcome the new season properly, come and treat yourself to one of our special PROTOS guided tours, where you will enjoy a unique and unforgettable weekend in one of the region's most charming areas.

BODEGAS PROTOS will be decked-out for spring during the weekend of March 26th-27th, offering full tours of our facilities with an extra added dose of magic. Visitors will spend an hour-and-a-half touring the old aging cellars, which run through 2km of subterranean galleries located underneath the mountain on which stands Peñafiel Castle. More than one surprise awaits them there. The tour will end up in the new cellars, designed by the prestigious British architect Richard Rogers, where visitors will have the opportunity to sample two excellent PROTOS wines: the 2009 Verdejo and the 2003 Protos Wine Club Private Series, a limited edition produced especially for lovers of fine PROTOS Ribera del duero wines.

Throughout the tour, in which there will be plenty of magic moments, we will reveal how our wines are produced and how our cellars were constructed, including each one's history. This will be a special weekend filled with surprises not to be missed.

The event will take place next Saturday, March 26th, with tours beginning at 11 A.M. 1 P.M. 4:30 P.M. and 6:30 P.M. Tours will also run on Sunday, March 27th, beginning at 11 A.M. and 1 P.M. The price is €13 and you must reserve your spot in advance by calling 659 843 463 or by sending an email to

PROTOS, from the Greek word for first, was founded in 1927 and has remained true to its motto "BE FIRST," which emphasises the company's dedication to continuous improvement in every area of operations, always making quality the number one priority. This focus has helped the winery gain the utmost respect in the international market, as the brand is sold in more than 87 countries on five continents. Thanks to its new facilities, designed by the prestigious British architect and Priztker Prize winner Sir Richard Rogers, the company is once again on the cutting edge of viticulture and wine tourism in Ribera del Duero.
