Wine Tourism in Lerma & Arlanza
Wine tourism in Arlanza – Visit the best wineries in Lerma. A complete stay in a hotel in Lerma as Posada de Eufrasio can not be complete without discovering one of the most important elements of its traditional culture, wine and wineries. If you want to enjoy wine tourism and the world of wine, Lerma and the region of Arlanza will surprise you with the wine culture that is present in every corner and the number of wineries in Lerma and surroundings that you can visit. All this makes wine tourism in Arlanza the best complement to your getaway at Posada de Eufrasio, your hotel in Lerma. Lerma and its surroundings are traditionally wine lands. Proof of this is that we are located within the Arlanza Denomination of Origin and very close to one of the most important and well-known Denominations of Origin in our country, Ribera del Duero. Our D.O. Arlanza is located in the southern part of the province of Burgos and to the east of Palencia, receiving its name from the Arlanza River, which bathes the entire wine-growing territory. Localities such as Lerma (where the D.O. headquarters are located) or Covarrubias are included in this D.O. which, although it does not have the fame or the extension of vineyards of our neighbor Ribera del Duero, has its own personality that makes it different and special. Although the winemaking tradition here goes back centuries, we are a fairly new D.O., specifically since 2007.
