Plaza Espana

Reviewed By LuckySpivey - Atlanta, Georgia

We stopped on our way from Granada to Toledo. The plaza was pretty and interesting, in a country, charming way. (I suspect this is much more how "real" Spaniards live than the more popular tourist destinations.)
It has a few tapas restaurants and bars surrounding it. An interesting looking church that was not open. No one. No one spoke English. We managed fine with smiles and limited Spanish, but if you expect English spoken every where you go, this is not your kind of place.

Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion

Reviewed By zambixi - Washington DC

To the best of my knowledge this is more of a functioning church than a tourist attraction. There is no audio guide or carefully curated collection of relics, and you'll probably find children kicking soccer balls off the outside walls in the evenings. That being said, the interior is beautiful and worth making a stop if you are staying in the area.

Dionisos La Bodega de las Estrellas

La Bodega de las Estrellas (the winery of the stars, former Bodegas Dionisos) is nearly 200 years old and testifies the succession of four generations of vintners. As Spanish's organic agriculture pioneers, our vines are cultivated in harmony with the environment allowing the synthesis of aromas, flavours and antioxidants that grape is then storing under its skin. We are using centenarian amphorae (tinajas) in an elaboration as simple and natural as the wine itself. They provide a unique character for the wines and soften their tannins. Moreover, we practice fermentation by means of grape's wild yeasts only, to let wines express their origin: terroir, fruit and traditional processes. Our sunny lands provide Tempranillo variety with a perfect maturity and permit the natural creation of fruity aromas and flavours. Natural wines full of vitality and without any additive which reveal the natural characteristics of this charnel, juicy and fruity variety. Natural character and quality are our priorities; we do not have much interest for new technologies. This concept reflects the passion and love we put in winemaking.

We appreciated very much our visit to the Bodega. Dionisos was passionnate by ecological wine culture, looking for the naturality of the wines, without additives and based on the rhythm of the moon. This vinification process make wine of great quality, particularly the white wine. Dionisos took much time, giving to us many explanations on his approach and showing his installation which dates back to two centuries. The visit culminated with a degustation of four different wines and a delicious lunch (manchego cheese, serrano ham, rice with pork and choriso), a true house made lunch prepared by Dionisos himself.

Museo del Vino

Reviewed By Megan F

The staff at the museum are helpful and friendly, and the price is reasonable. It was incredible to see the whole history behind wine, including different techniques and machinery used. The explanations are only in Spanish, but the staff at the counter gave my dad a paper with information in English so he could understand some more stuff, and I would not need to translate all. Includes a wine sample at the end, it was great!! Must visit it!!

Yacimiento Ibero Cerro de las Cabezas

Reviewed By Sarah W - Southampton, United Kingdom

An ancient Iberian town located on a hill waiting to be exposed to the world... obviously lacking funds. What has been excavated already is fascinating and the museum, which is an architectural delight, is a pleasurable walk through history for FREE! Other buildings made from the local stone are surrounded by a delightful garden, which would make a great location for a restaurant and music venue...
Needs sponsorship.

Bodegas Corcovo

Reviewed By Roger S - Uzwil

We wanted to tast wine as we run a little hotel and we would like to offer great local wine to our clients. Corcovo was the only bodega not offering tastings. They asked us to buy the wine bottles for tasting. We have offered to pay the tasting, as we also did in other bodegas. No way. Corcovo hat a large varity of wine and we can't buy 40 bottles to make decisions. The employee didn't make anything to help us in our sitiation. We left very disappointed. The only Thing which was great, was the show room!!

Cafe Paris Valdepenas

Reviewed By luna94 - español

Hemos ido allí para comer. Aparte de nosotros había, también 3 ancianos, tomando copas. Servicio es muy lento. Desde nuestra mesa se podía observar la cocinera preparar los platos. No me gustó, que para el empatado, cogida los elementos con las manos. Normalmente esto se hace con algún cubierto o con guantes. La comida, bien presentada, es absolutamente normal. Local es bastante oscuro y no se puede ver bien lo que comes. Tienen menú del día por 12€ o la carta. Buen surtido de vinos. La escalibada fue calentada en el microondas y el postre congelado parecía del "Super" de al lado. En general: hay otros locales en Valdepeñas, donde se puede comer mucho mejor por el mismo precio.

Veníamos recomendados y mereció la pena, aunque por la zona hay mucha oferta gastronómica. La comida bastante buena, el servicio rápido aun estando casi lleno y bien de precio.

Molino Gregorio Prieto

Reviewed By Asima S - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Como está ubicado algo fuera del centro (pero de ninguna manera demasiado lejos), supe de este Museo de los Molinos de Gregorio Prieto Gracias a mis amigos valdepeñeros; de no haber sido por ellos, no me habría enterado de la existencia de este magnífico lugar. El museo fue ideado por el mismo Gregorio Prieto para darle vida a su amor por los molinos. En él se albergan obras originales de Prieto como de artistas de siglos anteriores y contemporáneos suyos. La colección incluye, además, recreaciones hogareñas como, por ejemplo, una cocina típica manchega. Para los ya amantes de la obra de Gregorio Prieto y los que todavía no lo han descubierto o no lo conocen bien, ésta es una visita obligatoria, apta para todas las edades.
