HACIENDA ZORITA WINE HOTEL & SPA is an ancient Dominican monastery of the 14th century on the river Tormes.

History

Hacienda Zorita wine hotel & spa is an ancient Dominican monastery of the 14th century at the river Tormes. It rests some 15 minutes far from the historic city of Salamanca, Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Surrounded by countryside and vineyards HACIENDA ZORITA is member of Small Luxury Hotels since 2012. It was at Zorita that Cristopher Columbus persuaded the “Reyes Católicos” to provide the support he needed to realize his dream, leading to the discovery of the New World. Christopher Columbus stayed here whilst raising funds to sail across the Atlantic to follow an alternative route to Marco Polo’s way to get to China…or so he thought.

The celebration of a wedding will always hold a special place in the memories of closest friends and family. Two remarkable villas with 5 star hotel service in Arribes del Duero Natural Park.

1366

The Dominican Friars were given the estate by the noblewoman Ines de Limoges, who was hoping to save her deceased husband’s soul. The Friars lived here and cultivated these farmlands and wheat fields. Like us, they were farmers!

1485

Christopher Columbus stayed here whilst raising funds to sail across the Atlantic to follow an alternative route to Marco Polo’s way to get to China…or so he thought. He actually ended up in San Salvador, in the Bahamas!

1881

Don Tomás de Solís, an industrial visionary of his time, built the most cutting-edge flourmill in the Duero Valley, making the estate famous throughout Spain. After a devastating fire, the estate was abandoned and left in ruin.

2000

Throughout most of the 20th century our estate reached its lowest point. For decades no one had the patience and vision to take care of the hacienda. This is where we came in.

We brought Hacienda Zorita back to life as the home of Marqués de la Concordia family of wines – with the dream to restore it back to its original beauty. We knew this would mean hard work, so we searched for the long lost blue-prints and started at the beginning, brick-by-brick…

San Nicolas de las Viñas old Chapel

A former chapel that illustrates Hacienda Zorita’s century old heritage & atmosphere, while at the same time providing all facilities necessary to organise a contemporary event.

Decorated with original canvas & mural paintings that date back to the 16th and 18th century, this venue allows the simultaneous use of the hacienda’s tranquil private gardens, with spectacular views over the River Tormes.

Up to 100 seated guests can fit comfortably in the old chapel.

The old winery

The former winery (not to be mistaken with the ageing cellar) was converted into a modern, spacious and versatile event venue.

Up to 250 seated guests can fit comfortably here to celebrate your special occasion.
