Autumn is already here. The days are getting shorter, the sunsets in Ribera del Duero are becoming spectacular and the first cool winds announce the arrival of colder weather. It all encourages us to gather round the table to share the best wine and best suckling lamb. And at Bodegas Arzuaga, we specialise in both.
For years, our kitchen has been working with the best suckling lamb in Castile and León, a product linked to the land with an inimitable characteristic flavour. That’s why we treat it with the utmost care and full respect. We want you to be able to taste it in all its glory, without any extras that might detract from that amazing sensation when you take the first bite. And since we know that you like to try it again and again, we have three delicious ways to savour it.
You’ve surely thought of the first one while you were reading this post: suckling lamb roasted in the traditional style, lovingly prepared by our kitchen staff. The meat is slowly roasted in our wood-fired oven until it reaches the point of perfection: crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. It’s only because we know the product inside and out that we can make a dish that’s as simple as it is delicious. You can bet that you’ll never forget the roast suckling lamb from our traditional restaurant.
But that’s not the only way you can try it. We love grilled lamb chops, and we’re sure that you’ll love them, too. With their characteristic shape, these delicious cuts of meat stay on the grill just long enough to concentrate their flavour so you can enjoy it at the table. It’s a simple recipe that’s the result of years of tradition in Castilian cooking, which we at Bodegas Arzuaga know how to treasure.
Finally, we’re sure that you’ve heard us talk about our suckling lamb kebabs at some point, tasty skewers that alternate different cuts of meat: front, rear, rack and loin. Here at Bodegas Arzuaga, we roast them over vine shoots and serve them with salad from our kitchen garden. It’s a real treat you just have to try since all the nuances they get from the vine shoots can’t be put into words here.
And to go along with any of these options, you have your choice of our wines, of course. Personally, we suggest our Arzuaga Crianza. It’s a sure-fire choice for your pairing. So, now all you have to do is call us on (+34) 983 681 146 to book and enjoy the best suckling lamb. At Arzuaga, naturally!
