Our Winery

Our vineyards in Ribera del Duero sit at high elevation; approximately 3,000 feet above sea level, and are planted exclusively to the indigenous grape of the region: Tempranillo. These are high altitude, old-vines with an average age of about 40 years. The winery and land have been in the family since the early 1980's, recently rededicated to the Dominio de la Abadesa label. Here we produce a Roble, Crianza and Reserva Ribera del Duero.

Our family owned property in Rueda is planted mostly to the native grape Verdejo. We also produce a little Sauvignon Blanc in these vineyards as well. Rueda is a land of plateaus, of great plains, of gentle rolling hills, of gravel and sand. Rueda is known for its long, cold winters leading up to hot summers. Our vineyards here are high altitude, 700+ meters, resulting in the freshest and most aromatic white wines. 

The Torrecilla de la Abadesa people inspired us to name our wines from Rueda and Ribera, Dominio de la Abadesa. Near there is our Torreduero vineyard, at an altitude of around 700m, surrounded by pine forests, vineyards and cereal grains. It is defined by its gentle slope, its sands and the proximity of the Duero.

Bio:

Raquel, Leticia, Rubén and María Pérez Cuevas are part of the fourth generation of the Pérez Cuevas family to carry on the tradition of grape growing in Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Rueda. Their father Gabriel inherited the family's Rioja vineyards in the 1970's and was one of the leading advocates for the wines of Ribera and Rueda, expanding the family's holdings there in the early 1980's, well before Ribera was even on the world wine map. He and his children have been been expanding and fine tuning their wineries in Ribera and Rueda ever since. These are high altitude old-vines that produce grapes with profound intensity, yet graceful and elegant.
