Ribera del Guadiana D.O. wine and D.O. Cava

From Mérida to Zafra the EuroVelo 1 route crosses the heart of the Tierra de Barros district, the main wine production centre of the Ribera del Guadiana D.O. The town of Almendralejo is one of the few areas outside Cataluña to produce sparkling wines with the D.O. of Cava. Some of its cellars can be visited as a gastronomic alternative after hours of pedalling.
