From the heart of the Ribera del Duero, in the town of Valbuena del Duero, we have expanded into the best winemaking areas of Castile-Leon and La Rioja. Since our origins, when wine tourism in Spain was only just taking off, we have prioritised open days and winery visits as being necessary to publicise our good work and to give our visitors the sense of ownership of the wine.
Later on, with the opening of the EMINA Wine Museum, we developed a whole concept of enjoyment based around wine culture, feelings and knowledge of our winemaking heritage. Our diversity as a wine manufacturer allows us to offer different types of visits to different customer segments, who are also able to visit Matarromera, Rento, Emina Rueda, Cyan, Valdelosfrailes and Bodega Carlos Moro.
We have won several awards in the field of wine tourism, such as the “Q for Quality Tourism Award”, the ACEVIN Wine Tourism Award for 2014, and the Tourism Merit Medal awarded to Carlos Moro by the Government of Spain in 2015.
More than 15,000 people visit the Group’s wineries every year, with Bodega Matarromera and Emina Wine Museum being the most popular venues, with these places already known throughout Spain as wine tourism landmarks.
The range of possibilities is rounded off with the Restaurant La Espadaña de San Bernardo, near the Emina Winery in San Bernardo (Valladolid), where traditional and avant-garde cuisine go hand-in-hand with devotion to quality wine. In addition, Valbuena de Duero is home to the Hotel Rural Emina, a complex with a 30-guest capacity, offering excellent prospects for wine tourism. All this results in an unquestionable commitment to the development of the rural areas where the wineries are located.
It’s also worth visiting the Matarromera vineyards. The Matarromera Group is considered to be one of the most important vineyard owners in Castile-Leon, in addition to its properties in La Rioja. Situated along the Duero and Ebro rivers, its vineyard is known for offering a selection of the best grapes in Spain. More than 550 hectares are devoted to vineyards in the most important wine regions of Spain, more than 110 hectares are devoted to olives in the provinces of Valladolid and Zamora, and more than 270 hectares are devoted to traditional farming, designed to guarantee the Matarromera Group’s commitment to quality and the land, as
well as showing the greatest possible respect for the environment.
