Fun tour, great wines
Feb 2020
We really wanted to check out Finca Villacreces, the winery that produces Pruno, one of the best red wines under $20. The tour was fun, inexpensive, and added to our appreciation of Pruno and the Ribera del Duero wines.

Ideally set in the middle of the Ribera del Duero's golden mile, the winery is surrounded by its picturesque vineyards, and housed in a traditional looking building. Our engaging guide explained the history of the winery, dating back hundreds of years, when it housed a monastery with winemaking monks. She also noted that the vineyards are cultivated organically, but unspecified aspects of the process prevent the winery from marketing the wine as "organic." She discussed the relevant aspects of the villacreces terroir and microclimates in the context of the Ribera del Duero region and explained the winemaking process, as she led us through vineyards and buildings. Villacreces uses steel vats and oak casks (both French and U.S.) for fermentation process, and they have started testing Spanish oak casks and cement vats.

The tasting included two wines, Pruno and Finca Villacreces. Very good and better. It was accompanied by bread, jamón Iberico, and Manchego cheese. It was informative and yummy.

One of the aspects that made this a very enjoyable tour was the setting, which was idyllic. The 285 acre state includes a small, 200-year old forest, and the facilities include a beautiful courtyard with an olive tree in the middle that is over 100 years old. There is also a charming chapel.

The tour was inexpensive (15 Euros per person), and since we visited off season we did not need reservations. Luckily, when we checked around midday, we were told we could join another couple on a 4:00pm tour that day. Recommendation, call or email first.

Finally, one of the workers at our local wine shop turned us onto Pruno by noting that its vineyards abut those of the older, more prestigious Vega Sicilia winery, and on the way out we were able to verify that indeed they are only separated by a narrow gravel road.

Excellent Tour and wine tasting
Feb 2020
I personally liked the tour very much. It was my first visit to a bodega and it was interesting learning about their wine making process. The lady giving us the tour made it very fun. It is a beautiful place and the wines are great. I recommend the tour and wine tasting (also the olive oil) 100%.

Great place/poor coordination
Dec 2019 • Business
Great big and beautiful place. Great wines in there. Very cold on December. The reason for a 4/5 is the quality of their wines, actually should be a 3.5 due to my situation when I arrived there (make sure and double check your reservation because mine was cancelled without notification due to inventory)

Great tour and tasting with Mercedes
Jul 2019 • Friends
The tour with Mercedes was the Mercedes of all wine tours in Ribera del Duero. She knows a lot about wine and its production process. We were able to try Pruno, Finca Villacreces, Izadi Selección, Vetus and a phantastic olive oil. This tour is highly recommended!

Interesting tour
Mar 2019 • Friends
Scenic winery hidden away behind pines ( which are protected ) and on the golden mile of the Duero valley. Well kept grounds and neat rows of vines. We opted for the tour and the wine tasting for 20 euros per person. The tour was fascinating and well presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic young lady. We were also shown a little history of the place and the cellar where the vintages are stored. After the tour the wine tasting consisted of 5 wines, each served with a different mature cheese. Again informative and enjoyable.

Waking-up senses

We got a trip along the wine gold-mille in which winery Finca Villacreces joints with Vegasicilia and others, washed by Duraton river. This spectacular region produces probably the best wines in the world. We looked at these wineries because these wines had accompanied most strinking moments in our lives. We enjoyed a very nice winery visit and wine tasting of Pruno, Villacreces and Nebro.

Ribera del Duero Gem

Winery was referred by a friend as very pleasant and welcoming. The tour itself and Vanessa, the host, by far exceeded our expectations. Have to talk about the wines first because they are fabulous. The tasting was paired with a small charcuterie sample that was just right. The tour was very informative and well paced. Overall our experience at Finca Villacreces was fabulous.

Lovely setting, disappointing wines
Sep 2017 • Family
We were not impressed with the wines in this location. We were booked at a number of wineries and typically found the tastings exceptional. Not so here.

Thank you for your visit! We are sorry about your experience at Finca Villacreces. Our wines have a lot of personality from the state and it depends on your preferences you will love them or not. Our wine Pruno has been qualified like the best value wine by Robert Parker so we do not understand why you are so disappointed about it. We hope you found a Ribera del Duero wine you liked. Best regards, Finca Villacreces
