In our rich territory we can also find vineyards. Even as this is not a viticultural region, we are on our way to become into one. From Hostel Villa San Juan, we support this new agricultural vocation of our region.
The vineyard we visit is small, and belongs to the Sol de Oro consortium, to provide grapes to the world famous wine Marqués de Puntalarga. In our ride we may visit some other 4 or 5 small vineyards, also belonging to the same consortium of grape producers.
The route can be done easily riding from Villa San Juan, or if we want to avoid riding next to the sometimes annoying traffic of the main road, we can drive to Corrales and begin our journey from there. We visit the towns of Corrales, Busbanzá and Floresta. The vineyard is located in rural area of Corrales, and they crop the varieties Riesling and Mission. The route does not have strong ascents, and is ridable all the time. The landscape here is completely different to the one we find next to the páramos.
