3Ases is a winery in the heart of the Ribera de Duero region that’s committed to quality, hard work and passion. Our limited production means that all processes are controlled down to the very last detail from the vineyard to the bottle, harvesting the grapes by hand which are transported in boxes and then fermented under controlled conditions using
only local yeasts, ensuring the wines are truly expressive of their region. This is the project of César Arranz, Ángel Rodríguez and Rubén San Miguel: 3friends, 3partners and 3Ases who, since 2007, have been dedicated to this enterprise: “a small but great company” in one of Spain’s most famous wine-producing regions.
The AALTO project was founded in February 1999, in the prestigious winemaking region of Ribera del Duero (Spain). The foundational aim of Mariano Garcia and Javier Zaccagnini in AALTO was to make a wine that shows a different personality, of high quality and being a faithful reflection of distinct locations, blending them at the end of the aging process to obtain balance and complexity.
A few years later, in 2006, Masaveu and Nozaleda families joined AALTO, both owners of wineries in other wine regions of Spain, providing experience and stability to the project, which meant the consolidation of the winery to this day.
From its beginnings in 1999 until the harvest of 2004, the production of our wines took place in rented facilities in Roa (Burgos, Spain). While the project was being established, the founders began looking for a new place to locate their own new winery. A beautiful plot of 15 hectares belonging to the municipality of Quitanilla de Arriba (Valladolid) was chosen.
The first phase of the new winery was completed in 2005, being that year the first harvest that was produced in these facilities. The modern design chosen for this new winery was carried out only with the very highest quality criteria. The architecture of the winery is perfectly integrated into the environment, in a typical Ribera del Duero plateau, with a lineal and harmonic design without ostentation, and minimalistic details, elegant and comfortable. The second phase of the winery corresponding to the more social part of the winery was completed in 2016.
Abadía de Acón is located in the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, in Castrillo de la Vega, Burgos. The original cellar, created out of rocky clay, is one of the deepest and largest in Castrillo de la Vega. Here, during many centuries, our family made wines using traditional methods.
In 1953 our grandfather, Norberto Carrasco, built concrete vats in the cellar and, through a wise combination of concrete and wood, managed to make graceful, fruity, mature, and elegant wines. Since then we kept taking care of the land and vineyards, making wine thanks to the traditional way and using the knowledge necessary to realize our current project.
Thanks to the traditions of our forefathers and the culture of our land, it has been possible to make a dream come true. We have built a winery that is truly different. It is designed in perfect harmony with Nature, it uses state-of-the-art technology, including the use of gravity, and our own vineyards cultivated in the traditional manner.
Today it is Jose Antonio Carrasco who has inherited his grandfather's wisdom to bring forward a great wine to his children and grandchildren so that our company remains for a long time.
Bodegas Abadía la Arroyada was founded by Vicente Muñoz Muñoz in Terradillos de Esgueva. He comes from a family with a long viticulture tradition. As a matter of fact his grandfather, Vicente Muñoz Vivar, devoted himself to elaborate large quantities of wine. In addition, he sold this wine to the local inhabitants.It is worth saying that some of those vineyards planted by that Vicente Muñoz are still producing grapes for Abadía la Arroyada’s best wines.
Our commitment to quality in the winery begins when the grapes are received, since, when they arrive at the winery in the boxes, they are neither pumped, nor compressed, nor sampled, they go directly to a selection belt to eliminate possible clusters that do not respond to the expected quality, as well as leaves. From this point it goes to the destemmer (machine that removes the stem from the bunch), and from there to the tank where it will ferment.
All processes are extremely careful and monitored. The fermentation temperature of the tanks is controlled by the cold equipment through thermometric probes that control the circulation of cold water through the tanks.
The number of pumping overs with or without aeration is decided at the end of the harvest day according to the evolution of the fermentation and maceration of the wine. In addition, the pressing of the pomace is practically a drain, since very little pressure is applied to the pomace by means of the vertical press.
The rest of the processes are also careful, above all with the characteristics that the wine acquires from the fruits that our land, the RIBERA DEL DUERO, offers.
Finally, the aging of the wines is carried out in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels in our underground cellar, specially designed so that the oscillations of humidity and temperature are minimal, and that the air renewal is sufficient but not excessive. So that only the wood, time and the illusion of a family act on the wine.
Bodegas y Viñedos Aceña, a family winery that perfectly combines tradition and innovation, care and roots in its land with the most dynamic spirit in terms of the style of its elaborations.
Its indisputable pillar is care; care of the vineyard, the grape, the must and the wine. Search the terroir and wait for the optimal moments to carry out the pruning, detailing, thinning, bunch selection and harvesting tasks; all by and for the highest quality in the grape.
Within the work philosophy of this winery, quality is an essential condition and, above all, non-negotiable. To meet our goal, we have the most advanced technology and the best means to make a great wine. TERRAESTEBAN
Bodega y Viñedos Adrada Ecológica, located in Adrada de Haza, a small village in Ribera del Duero, were set up in response to our dream of producing a small amount of high quality wines while protecting the natural environment. The quality of our wine comes from the way the vineyards are treated. We allow the laws of nature to rule the soil and crops. Kirios de Adrada is the first organic Ribera del Duero wine and it has the certificate of two denominations.
Our production system guarantees quality wines, free of chemical residues, with a great complexity in aromas and flavours, being KIRIOS DE ADRADA the first organic wine from Ribera del Duero certified by both appellations.
KIRIOS DE ADRADA is a family project created by Jesús Lázaro and Maite Perera in 2001. Our passion for wine and land leads us towards five important objectives:
Promote organic agriculture and viticulture with biodynamic practices.
Recover and maintain old vineyards, of great historical value, within our Designation of Origin Ribera del Duero.
Promote agricultural work with draft animals.
Keeping the terroir alive with agricultural practices that respect the environment.
Produce high quality wines, wines that reflect the personality of the terroir of each of our estates.
From his 200 hectares of breathtaking vineyards, Alejandro makes wines in which the wood has great respect for the fruit. Over time, the wines become more complex and nuanced without losing their original character; a phenomenon that has made the name Tinto Pesquera synonymous with fine wine from Ribera del Duero.
Tinto Pesquera is a pioneer in Tempranillo winemaking methods. The wine was given this name in honor of Pesquera de Duero, the town where the winery is located and where Alejandro and Esperanza were born. Tinto Pesquera is the gold standard for wines from this region.
The history of Familia Fernández Rivera began with the ingenuity of Alejandro Fernández and Esperanza Rivera, as well as the hard work and unity of a family. Together they created—according to Robert Parker—one of the best wines in the world. The group now boasts four wineries, a hotel and a team comprised of more than 120 people. Familia Fernández Rivera has known how to adapt to the times. At present, its wines and products are sold in more than 70 countries.
In the heart of Sotillo de la Ribera and the DO Ribera, the Alto Sotillo winery is located.
Among its own vineyards, transmitted by the grandfather Pantaleón, who is more than 50 years old, the Calvo family maintains the art of making wine, accumulating the know-how of several generations and incorporating the most modern production systems to satisfy customers who today are They distribute all over the world.
Since our inception we are focused on four objectives: to make wines of the highest quality, maintain a constant capacity for innovation, work in total harmony with the environment and be useful to the community to which we belong.As we love what we do, our wines are the fruit of constant effort and dedication that makes us simply unique.
Our winery is located in Curiel de Duero, in the heart of the Designation of Origin Ribera del Duero. We work hard to make perfect wine through a combination of traditional winery techniques with modern technologies. Between 1920 and 1930, Don Pedro Nunez de la Cuesta planted vineyards in Valdecuriel, and some of them are still in service. Between 1980 and 1990, Don Gervasio Granado, who is famous for its talent in making wines, began to plant new vineyards with the brand new trellising techniques. This was the beginning of the brand new winery, situated in a new building at the foot of our vineyards Valdecuriel y las Pinzas. The winery is surrounded by mountains; that is why the winery is called Bodegas Altogrande.
The wines from Bodegas Alto Grande are produced 100% of the grapes from our own wine yards, which allows us to provide the highest quality from the very beginning of the production cycle. Our wines are made of quality native grapes in order to provide good quality and structure.
Altos del Enebro is the personal project of Rodrigo González, seduced by the beauty of the Duero Valley, decided to bet his future next to this land. He always dreamed of working his own vineyards and someday come to make his own wine. He bought a lot in the area of La Horra (Burgos) later discovered an idyllic setting in the Pardilla term where the rest of the project is based.
Altos del Enebro is a ’boutique winery’ with a limited production, where the “terroir” gives a unique identity to its wines. Vineyards at an altitude of almost 1000 meters with very complex, stony soils, that are very different from the rest of Ribera del Duero. The result is fine, elegant, round, silky wines of great personality.
Away from any fashion, we make our wines in the Ribera del Duero with one goal, to reflect in the bottle, the characteristics of the land that surrounds our vineyards, this may seem simple... but it is a persistent job. It requires a constant monitoring of each of the stages of the vineyard and a very detailed monitoring of the wines in the cellar.
At Altos del Enebro we pursue a respectful way of working the vineyard, the result allows us to experience the magic of the terroir, in each uncorked bottle.
Our wines are the true interpretation of each vineyard, of everything that nature, our work and our own interpretation contributes.
In 1941, Mr. Modesto Alvarez Romero and Mr. Eladio Díez Ossorio created the company Alvarez y Díez, S.A. Our winery was born. Currently, as a small tribute to these pioneers, it continues to carry their name.
in 1977, D. Enrique J. de Benito started a deep restructuring due to a change in business philosophy. The current facilities were built and provided with state-of-the-art winemaking techniques to make modern quality wines with our native verdejo variety as a base, with full character and personality.
“Of all the fruits of the earth, the one that incites higher theology, philosophy, poetry, and natural charm doses is the grape in the midst of being made wine. Because in wine there are hidden miracle senses that, in some way, bind our body and soul”
In 1992, his son Juan de Benito became Director/Manager. A second stage started, based on the same business philosophy and putting in motion a new updating and modernization of the Company.
Another son, Álvaro de Benito, joined the team in 2001. As Assistant Manager, he is responsible of the Sales and Export Department, and designs the expansion and marketing plans for the winery.
We currently have an important presence in the national market and we export to more than 15 countries.
Bodegas Alcubilla were born in the riverside town of Vadocondes, as a result of Antonio Alcubilla's desire to continue the tradition of several generations dedicated to caring for vines and making wine.The origin of Bodegas Alcubilla dates back to 2004, from the rehabilitation of an old farm creating a modern winery where our wines are made. The most advanced technology and the dedication of traditional care merge in the elaboration of wine.
Arbas is a family winery located in Piñel de Arriba Valladolid. Our philosophy is to produce quality wines and wines with personality. Jesus Arbas and Mayte have managed to permeate under the cellar, wine and facilities of other great passion: dance. It is not easy to relate these fields, but they have succeeded. Visitors are surprised that after wine tasting they can enjoy a visit to the dance Viñas inside the warehouse. A small stage that coexists with the bedroom of bottles, oak barrels and tasting room puts them on notice. The posters that decorate the room, alluding to teachers of Spanish dance, create a climate which explains the basis of the Rond de Jambe wine.
Bodegas y Viñedos Arco de Curiel was born in 1998 with a spirit and vocation for quality, guided by respect for the traditional way of making Ribera del Duero wine.
The winery takes its name from the "Arco de la Magdalena", next to which it is located, and whose history dates back to the 12th century.
This winery was founded by third generation winegrowers, Moises Calvo and Rosa Arroyo in 2002. In that wet and rainy vintage, a winery backed out of a contract to purchase their fruit. So, they harvested the fruit, thinned every bunch by hand (lots of botrytis) and borrowed a tank to produce their first wine. The original idea was to sell the wine in bulk, but they ended up bottling it and selling it under their own label; Arrocal.
The name of the winery comes from the first syllable of each of the owners, Arro- from Arroyo and -cal from Calvo.
Moises and Rosa have been joined by the fourth generation with the addition of their two sons Rodrigo and Asier. The winery is located in Gumiel de Mercado a small village in the western portion of the Ribera del Duero D.O.
Some of their vineyards were planted by their parents while the youngest vines have been planted by their sons. A new winery was built and utilized for the 2005 vintage.
With the completion of the new winery, all movement of wine through the winery takes place by gravity to minimize rough handling and maximize fruit expression and finesse in texture of finished wine. Fruit expression is maximized through temperature controlled fermentations, utilizing short macerations and gentle pressing in low capacity basket press.
