Our Winery

The winery is located in the town of Villalba de Duero, Ribera del Duero region, in the province of Burgos.

The name of the BELA winery arises in honor of one of the three children of the CVNE Co-founder, Sofía, who was known as Bela.  

We cultivate 81 hectares of vineyards planted mostly on trellises, in two towns: Villalba de Duero and Moradillo de Roa.

- Our Villalba de Duero vineyards were planted in 2002, with an altitude of 800m. Sandy loam with a continental climate.

- Our Moradillo de Roa vineyards are over 20 years old. They are found at an altitude of 1,000m. Stony soils with a continental climate.

All Bella wines are aged in French and American oak barrels.
