Come on a weekday for theatrical guided tours and tastings. On weekends, take part in tastings and food pairings with choices including cheese, tapas, cold cuts, chocolate, and roast lamb.

How to Get There
Bodega Historica Don Carlos sits in the historic center of Aranda de Duero, about .6 miles (1 kilometer) from the bus station for a 10-minute walk. It’s about an hour by bus from Burgos and around two hours by bus from Madrid’s Avenida de America station. Travelers who plan to visit estates will need their own wheels—or take a tour with transportation.

When to Get There

Bodega Histórica Don Carlos S.XV runs on very Spanish hours, opening from midmorning until lunch, closing for a leisurely siesta, and then opening from the late afternoon until midevening. On Sunday, it opens for the morning session only. Saturday offers the broadest range of tour choices, but it is also the winery’s busiest day.

What to Do in Aranda de Duero
Known for its medieval wine cellars, the riverside town of Aranda de Duero is the epicenter of the Ribera del Duero wine region. Many travelers visit exclusively for wine.
