Our Winery
The Convento San Francisco winery was founded in 1998. It is housed within the 13th century remains of the San Francisco convent in Penafiel at the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero. Full advantage has been taken of old buildings that have stood the test of time, by renovating them to create century-old spaces for the production of fine wine. Full respect is given to the region’s ancient wine-making traditions while at the same time incorporating new technology into the production process. Starting from the principal that no two harvests are the same, we aim to interpret each harvest individually in order to achieve the best expression of the grapes. The result is pleasant wines with personality that are capable of satisfying experts as well as current-day lovers of fine wine.

Convento San Francisco
Bio:
The production process begins with an exhaustive selection of grapes from the best vineyards of the Ribera de Duero region. The bunches arrive at the winery in small capacity boxes, used to ensure maximum conservation. Upon arrival at the winery, the best bunches are selected using a vibrating sorting table. After destalking, the grapes are then placed on a second sorting table before going to tank for the maceration and fermentation processes. After the pre and post fermentation macerations, the wine is separated from the skins and in left to stabilize in receiving tanks. Pressing is not used in the production of our wines. After a number of weeks, the free-run wine is transferred into French and American oak barrels in the ageing room where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and ages over a period of several months, the specific length of time depending on each vintage. It is then skilfully blended for bottling and stored until sale.
