Veganzones

Founded in 1956

History

The winery is situated in the town of Fompedraza, at 8 km from Peñafiel, to the south of river Duero. It has its origins in 1956, when the grandfather of Veganzones bothers, founders of the winery, started to make wine with the grapes of his young vine. From then, the familiar tradition has continued although it was not until 2005 when they started to label the first “912 de altitud”. This is a family winery that seeks to produce wines of quality, respecting the terroir and combining a traditional wine-growing, where the grape harvest and the techniques of grape selection are manual processes. It counts on the last technological advances in machinery.
