The history of Emina dates back to the period of the Vacceos, a pre-Roman era when wine was first thought to be produced within the region of Ribera del Duero. Upon the land where Bodegas Emina now stands, the Vacceos, the Romans and more recently, the 12th century Cistercian monks all planted their grapes as the soil is thought to be some of the most fertile in the region. While on a tour of Bodegas Emina you will get to see, taste and absorb the benefits of the winery’s fertile soil by visiting its demonstration vineyard, where over 70 different grape varieties are planted. Perhaps the most unique and diverse planting of vines in all of Ribera del Duero, the individual vine health is testament to the healthy soils and magnificent wines that are produced at the winery. In addition to visiting the winery’s demonstration vineyard, we can also take you on a stroll through the winery’s impressive wine museum. An easy and enjoyable way to learn about the history of ancient and modern-day wine making, the tour ends with a inimitable olfactory experience which will help prep your nose for the comprehensive wine tasting that follows your tour.
During your tasting you may choose to savor Emina’s award-winning wines in the company of a wine specialist inside the winery’s professional tasting room (where you will learn how to taste and order wine like a pro), or while soaking up some sun on the winery’s private patio, or when paired with some of the most traditional dishes from the area at the winery’s on-site restaurant called La Espadaña.
A tour of Bodegas Emina is a true enological experience at its best, where you will be able to learn about everything there is do with wine from the ground…up!
