This wine cellar, a pioneer in Ribera del Duero, began activities in 1980, when three brothers, Benjamín, Manuel and Adolfo Pérez Pascuas, convinced of the excellent potential that lay in the vineyards owned by their father, Mauro, decided to initiate an ambitious project: to make one of the best wines in Spain and to carve a niche for it in the international marketplace. This is a family cellar which has focused on quality from its very beginnings, with much hard work and intense dedication. Currently, 500,000 bottles are produced yearly and this limited production allows for strict controls of the whole wine making process from its very beginning
The Bodega’s modern facilities are surrounded by vineyards and adjacent to the family’s luxuriant pine forest, sharing space with traditional elements from the area. Everything, up to the smallest detail, is carefully tended pursuing a philosophy of respect for the land and the environment.
