Spain’s Wine Country: Le Domaine, Abadia Retuerta Opens near Valladolid

Le Domaine, Abadia Retuerta, Spain

There’s a new hideaway hotel for travelers in Spain’s wine country east of Valladolid. Just this week, the Abadia Retuerta Winery officially opened its very own hotel called Le Domaine-- housed in a heritage-listed abbey dating from the 12th century. Surrounded by the vineyards of the Duero Valley, the hotel is the result of an incredible renovation project by Italian architect Marco Serra. There are 20 bedrooms and two suites overlooking the vines that produce Abadia Retuerta wines. Though small, the hotel offers five-star services: 21st century technology and butlers on call.

Located in the old refectory where the monks used to eat, the gourmet restaurant serves up classic Spanish cuisine with a contemporary twist, sourcing local produce, some plucked from the orchards and herbs on the property. A spa will open in 2013. A tip from Wallpaper magazine: “A genuine open-air museum with sculptures by Ulrich Rückriem, a contemporary German artist who removes enormous stones from the ground and reassembles them on the surface, is something not to be missed.” After a tour of the estate, make sure to pick up some award-winning bottles at the Vinoteca, open from 10 am – 8 pm.
