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.

Nowadays most underground cellars have a private or tourist use and many of them, converted into other types of business like wine shops, museums or even restaurants, can be visited. However, there are still wineries that continue to make their products in these temples to wine-making. This other town exists for the pleasure of the senses underneath the villages of the Duero.
Wine, like architecture and design, is also an art form. Because of this, over the last few years, many wineries have shown their concern for the innovation and modernisation of their facilities, not just in wine-making mechanisms but also the image of the wineries themselves.
These contemporary works combine the functionality needed for working with the look and feel of the building, turning it into a true monument to wine.

This Interpretation Centre, located in an 18th-century building, introduces visitors to the historical legacy of wine culture in the region of the Ribera del Duero. Grape harvests were stored under the historic town centre already in the Middle Ages, and 135 medieval wine cellars survive today.
Bodega de las Ánimas was created as a museum to recreate different scenes and help visitors understand and value how wine was made and produced in bygone times.

Historic 14th-century underground winery.
Bodega Renalterra is located in Gumiel de Izán, in Burgos. The village has been declared a Historical-Artistic Site on account of its medieval architecture.
The winery was refurbished respecting the original architecture to preserve the traditional style, and adapted to aging, bottling and labelling D.O. Ribera del Duero wines. We have put our heart and soul into the production of these wines. Our traditional, artisanal wines ignite the five senses.
