  • Food and wine at the Heart of Spain

    Food and wine at the Heart of Spain

    A seven-night holiday in the tranquil riverside setting in Valverdόn in Salamanca, where Hacienda Zorita promises a fascinating array of food and wine experiences. Spend your time sampling the simple pleasures of the region, with a Michelin-starred restaurant and a unique wine spa. We also include a two-hour introduction to estate wines and regional produce for those seeking sensory indulgence in the Castille & Leon region of Spain. 

    The holiday
    This seven-night holiday commences with a flight from London Heathrow to Madrid, where you will collect your hire car. The two and a half hour drive will be a scenic introduction to central Spain, ending on the peaceful banks of River Tormes, home to the five-star Hacienda Zorita. A former 14th century monastery turned flour mill in the 19th century, Hacienda Zorita is now a luxury wine hotel and spa, and each of the 40 rooms, suites and villas boast vineyard or river views. While away the days indulging in the flavours of Zorita’s Kitchen, where Michelin-starred Chef Victor Gutierrez crafts the menu around what is fresh on the estate’s organic farm. These meals often consist of Mediterranean flavours and hearty regional staples, all devoured in the rustic dining room setting, where large tables foster a communal dining experience. Meanwhile, the unique addition of a wine spa offers ultimate sensory indulgence. This is just one of the wine-themed experiences of Hacienda Zorita thanks to the age-old vines that have adorned this sprawling riverside plot for over seven centuries. For example, we include in this package a one-off encounter with the Hacienda’s ‘magister’, or teacher, who will give an introduction to produce from the Duero region. You will get to sample the estate’s own Marques de la Concordia wines, as well as extra virgin olive oil, Iberian hams and raw cheeses. The session will take around two hours. Make sure you take the time during your stay to visit Salamanca, with its museums, palaces, plazas and the UNSECO-listed Old City. Your final day will conclude by returning your footsteps with a drive to Madrid Airport, where you will drop off your hire car and catch your return flight to London.
