Rueda, La Seca, Serrada - Lunch suggestions

Hi,
In June we will go to Valladolid, Spain,
We are going to visit vineyards in Rueda, La Seca and Serrada. Do you have restaurant suggestions to have lunch in these places?
Thanks

When we've done wine touring in Rueda, we've had lunch at the one Michelin star (and 2 Repsol sun) Restaurante La Botica in tiny Matapozuelos. It has a charmingly rustic decor and is a favorite of area wine makers. It sits just 10 minutes southeast of Serrada.The chef, Miguel Angel Cruz is a "forager", and his "forest" menus are very interesting and unusual. But he also serves the traditional dishes of Old Castile, like lechazo, baby roast lamb.

Since you're staying in Valladolid, you might want to add to your wine touring the stunning estate of Abadía Retuerta-Le Domaine to the east, outside of the village of Sardón de Duero. It's technically not part of the Ribera del Duero D.O. because it sits just outside of this demarcated region. The wines belong to the D.O. Tierras de Castilla. They do a very nice tour by jeep here, if you haven't been already. You can book online.

Le Domaine, the hotel, has both a casual bistrot, Vinoteca, and a gourmet restaurant, Refectorio with a Michelin star.

Thanks Maribel for your suggestions. Abadia looks very nice. We are thinking to book a tour at Protos in Penafiel. So maybe we can make a combination with these 2 wineries.
Do you have suggestion for tapas restaurants.

In Peñafiel, we've only dined at the hornos de asar or roasting taverns that specialize in lechazo, roast baby lamb, which is the signature dish of the Valladolid and Burgos provinces. I can't remember any tapas restaurants there that stand out.

Yes, you can combine a morning tour at Abadía Retuerta with Protos in the afternoon.

In Valladolid city, there are great tapas restaurants. In fact, Valladolid holds a very important national tapas & pinchos competition each year in November.

Our favorites in this city are Los Zagales (their most famous tapas, "Obama in the White House" and "Tigretostón"), La Tasquita (for their shrimp in garlic sauce), Vino Tinto, Jero, Don Bacalao (if you like cod carpaccio), El Corcho (for croquettes) and Villa Paramesa (near the Plaza Mayor), whose tapas are very creative.

Another idea instead of or in addition to the Richard Rogers' designed Protos in Peñafiel, you might enjoy even more the Pago de Carraovejas winery. A friend who is a food/wine tour guides enjoys taking her clients there.

Its restaurant, Ambivium, just won a Repsol sun award tonight at the awards ceremony in San Sebastián. It also has a wine bar.
