Resalte de Penafiel

Founded in 2000

History

Bodegas Resalte de Penafiel, nestled in the DO Ribera del Duero, is located in Penafiel, and has adopted since its inception the philosophy of making fine wines of the highest quality. We began producing our wines in 2000. With our state-of-the-art winemaking equipment we are able to combine traditional methods with modern technology to produce modern, complex, balanced wines. All our wines are made from the indigenous variety Tempranillo. This grape, hallmark of Ribera del Duero, contains exquisite fruit notes that we extract to give our wines their own identity. We source our grapes from 80 hectares of different vineyards, and those selected are among the finest in the Ribera. With this diversity of microclimates, orientation, soil type and height, we can craft more complex, flavorful wines. Resalte has quickly become a benchmark for superb quality wines in the DO Ribera del Duero.
