The Wine Route incorporates a professional and comprehensive selection of services that a “wine tourist” may require during a visit to Somontano. These include; winery visits; tasting courses and new activities; a carefully chosen selection of charming accommodation establishments (hotels, hostels, rural tourism houses and tourist apartments); the best restaurants and wine bars of the region; specialised shops; a varied selection of visitor centres; cheese making dairies and olive oil mills, active tourism companies, urban spas; transport companies and incoming travel agencies. This wide-ranging and attractive leisure offer, together with the landscape and a historic legacy, makes Somontano a unique destination, ideal for a relaxing break or a business trip with a difference.
The Somontano Wine Route has been part of the “Wine Routes of Spain.” This prestigious club is promoted by the Spanish Association of Wine Cities (ACEVIN in Spanish) and is backed by the General Secretaries of the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of the Environment and Rural and Marine Environments. The development of this association focuses on the creation of new, quality routes in areas with a strong wine growing tradition that are considered to be key wine destinations at a national and international level. In a market that contains thousands of wineries and wines, there are just eleven destinations certified by the “Wine Routes of Spain” and Somontano is one of its exclusive and privileged members.
