See traditional Bodegas in our cycling tour
All 17 regions of Spain produce wine to some extent.
Our tour takes us to the region of Aragon, this region is diverse, edged by mountains at either end, the landscape varies from snow capped mountains to parched plains and green hills.
Large cooperatives play a significant role in producing Aragon's traditional wines, they are mainly reds based on the Garnacha grape, other varieties include Carinena and Tempranillo.
On our tour we will visit the old traditional cave bodegas (caves inside the mountain), where some people still make their own wine using old methods of pressing and storage.
We may even have the opportunity to taste some of these wines from the family's bodega, even better if the wine comes with a plate of Serrano ham and cured cheese.
The red wine from this area (Valdejalon) is deep red in colour with a high alcohol grade, they are intense in flavour, well balanced with a hint of black berries.
