It is the origin of the amazing wine culture.
Wine cellar of Aranda de Duero
The culture of Aranda de Duero cannot be understood without relating it to the culture of wine and its wineries. Its climate, due to its privileged location in the Ribera del Duero allows it and favours the production of such precious beverage.
It is a rich city thanks to its wall, churches, the jurisdictional roll, and a set of wineries which were dug under the houses, a patrimonial heritage as the result of the tasks from the birth the grape until the production of the wine: crushing, pressing, decanting and stored wine.
A village, whose history and ethnography define its relationship to the wine, with its wineries which fill the village of underground galleries, an urban link of the XV century, which still remains today. Most of the wineries are next to the church of Santa Maria in the historic centre of the village.
It is a relevant heritage under the city with more than 5 kilometers of galleries, which extends as an as rich as old spider's web. It is a worthy legacy to be transmitted to future generations.
