Fompedraza, a small village in Valladolid with a viticulture tradition within the D.O. Ribera del Duero, has witnessed how the Benito Hernando brothers – Gaspar, Fernando and Javier- have developed the Bodegas Briego project, thus restoring the tradition that their father had followed almost fifty years before. There is a great deal of ambition invested in Briego; a synonym for fighting, fighting for wine quality and for better vineyard management, for painstaking work and for the revitalization of Fompedraza.
Briego's intention to produce great wines goes hand in hand with the structure of the winery, the extensions and the addition of techniques and technology to tradition. We always keep in mind that to produce a great wine it is necessary to pamper nature and unite its fruits with the work. Since then, these three brothers have not stopped working and researching in the pursuit of wines recognized for their quality. All this savoir-faire stems from yields which are very limited, meaning that currently around 400,000 bottles are produced, and these are distributed via the catering trade and specialty dealers on both national and international markets.

Strong cherry red color, clean and bright with tile and brick tones. Powerful, intense aromas of ripe black fruits with toasted hints of oak, vanilla and cocoa, with subtle balsamic nuances through the cask-conditioning. The attack is powerful, but fine and delicate, very flavorful, very long, very fruity. Hints of black fruits such as strawberry, blackberry and cranberry, wrapped in a covering of cocoa, toffee and chocolate.
Red color with medium-high intensity and teak tones on the edge of the glass. Spectacular intensity highlighting black fruits, violets and cocoa. A hint of dairy. The elegant wood creates a toasted background with kitchen spices. The excellent symbiosis of ripe tannins from black fruits with the essence of wood create a complex intensity of flavors; licorice, toffee, American tobacco, minerals, fallen leaves....
