Cepas de la Culebra is a hidden gem to be found in Zamora, a region largely unknown but nevertheless hiding incredible treasures waiting to be discovered. Every family within the village has its own vineyard, which has up until now traditionally been used to produce wine for family consumption, and therefore are old, small plots that are generally vine trained.
The main grapes you will find in most of the vineyards are the Mencia grapes which originally came from French Cabernet Franc grapes, and were brought to Léon in Spain through Camino de Santiago. Other red varietals include a small number of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes, and Palomino white grapes, which were recently in order to produce a larger volume of wine and to create a lighter, fresher structure in the wines made.
Through a tasting at Cepas de la Culebra, you will get to know all the wines we make in the special atmosphere of a traditional old house which today serves as the local museum 'Casa de los Carochos', dedicated to our masquerade 'Los Carochos'.
The activity includes a guided visit to the museum, a visit to our vineyard and a tasting of our wines, paired with local products. You'll also learn everything about the wine region we are in (Vinos de la Sierra de la Culebra) and interesting facts about our culture that would surprise you.
