On the slopes of Monte de San Pedro, Peña San Jorge, Pico de la Horca and Tallar, which surround the village, there are numerous wineries.

However, it is two kilometers from the town, where you can find the oldest winery in the Ribera del Duero, in the uninhabited area of ​​San Martín de Bañuelos. The first document referred to the enclave dates from 1179, when it belonged to King Alfonso VIII, although it could be earlier, since in that area there could be a Roman villa.

Three walls and a stone carved pile with a tap are preserved from the cellar. The cava is accessed through a ramp, consists of a ship of 25 meters in length and a zarcera of 12 meters. In the galleries you can see the cabins that house the vats topped by arches.
