Vinaigre and I visited the Bodega the Summer before last. Highly recommend it. The director of exports outside of Spain spent 4-5 hours with us touring the facility, answering all questions and ended the morning with a tasting of Alion, Valbuena, '04 Unico and their Tokaj. A splendid trip.

You'll want to throw their exact address in your gps as the bodega is very low profile from the road, hidden behind cedar trees. Once past the gate you find yourself in the splendor of Vega Sicilia.

By appointment only (a policy strictly adhered to). The appointment must be made by introductory letter from a distributor, importer, etc.

The Ribera del Duero region is just a couple of hours North of Madrid. I would suggest spending the evening prior to your appointment in Sergovia. Enjoy the traditional suckling pig and pair it with a bottle of Vega Sicilia Reserva. The restaurant we went to had it on the wine list for street price. A relative bargain.

Haven't been to Vega Sicilia (yet..), but I can definitely second KSCO2's comment about Segovia - a beautiful place to spend some time in if you're in the area.
According to the experts, wine tourism is growing a lot in the Castilla y León area and the wines from Ribera del Duero are amazing, as well as the list of places you can visit in such region (Especially Valladolid, Ávila, Segovia, Tordesillas and so on) I would recommed you to have a look about the possible wineries http://www.wine-searcher.com/regions-castilla+y+leon if you are looking for more information about this topic.

The wines from Ribera del Duero are great, as well as the ones from the "Toro" area (Near Rueda, Tordesillas and Ribera del Duero) Some of the best wines are produced in the Castilla y León area, together with the ones from La Rioja, Castilla-La Mancha (Toledo, Cuenca, Ciudad Real... areas), etc.

And finally, if you are looking for a possible company that is specialized in wine tourism in those above mentioned areas, Winebus can be a good option for you http://www.winebus.es/en/

Have a good time in Spain and take care!
