Published: Fri Aug 12 2011

Wine tourism at the perfect time to enjoy sunsets in the vineyards

Not only does BODEGAS PROTOS set itself apart with its exceptional wines, it is also a source of cultural, architectural and landscape experiences that run alongside the excellent gastronomy of Valladolid. As such, it is the perfect way to feel better in these tough times.

Visiting the area, one can get a first-hand look at how and where wines are made at BODEGAS PROTOS with the possibility of visiting its two wineries: the old one that extends into the mountain and the new one designed by the architect Sir Richard Rogers, Gabarron Visual Arts 2011 award winner. All of the visits include a tour through both wineries with wine tasting at the end of the tour.

With all these options, there is no excuse to bypass BODEGAS PROTOS this summer. You will find all the information you need about options and prices at

This is a great place to include on your itinerary for 2011 as these months are a lovely time to visit the vineyards to see the changing colours of the grapes. Plenty of people agree, as the number of visitors to the winery has not stopped increasing since it opened itself to wine tourism, topping 1600 visitors in July 2011.

All visits should be arranged prior to arrival, by either calling 659 843 463 or emailing

Cheer up and enjoy a relaxing day with us in the heart of the Ribera del Duero wine region.


PROTOS, from the Greek word "first", is a hundred-year-old winery that since 1927 has remained loyal to its motto BE FIRST. This attitude of constant improvement, with the sole premise of quality above all, both day-to-day and in the whole wine making process, has made the brand a high value icon in international markets, with commercialization in more than 87 countries on five continents. Thanks to its new facilities designed by the prestigious architect and Priztker Prize winner Sir Richard Rogers, it is situated once more at the cutting edge of the wine making and wine tourism scene in Ribera del Duero.
