The Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa is in the Ribera del Duero, a region known for its wine. The River Tormes, a tributary of the Duero, flows underneath it. Once a Dominican monastery, it was built in 1366, and Christopher Columbus is said to have stayed at the monastery prior to his famed voyage across the Atlantic -- it's now a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
The restaurant, Zorita's Kitchen, uses cheese, olive oil, cured ham and other ingredients from the hotel's organic farm, which is 15 minutes away. There's also a bar for drinks and snacks, with a terrace for al fresco dining, and an airy Refectory, which has large tables for communal dining. There's a chapel with medieval frescos and an outdoor pool on site, and guests can visit the hotel's vineyard for free (including tasting of three wines, once per stay).
About the area
UNESCO-listed Salamanca, "the most graceful city in Spain" (Rough Guides), is 15 minutes' drive away from the hotel. It is home to a historic university and cathedral. The village of Ledesma is a 20-minute drive from the hotel, past a Roman bridge.
Transfers & Baggage
Car hire is included. Checked luggage can be added from £40 per bag, return.
