Vega Sicilia

Considered one of the largest wine producers in Spain, Vega Sicilia is undoubtedly one of those legendary names in the wine world. The recent history of Vega Sicilia begins in 1864 when Don Eloy Lecanda, son of Toribio, became the heir to plots of vines handed down by his father, acquired by the latter from the Marquis de Valbuena. The Marquis de Valbuena will initiate the wine-growing activity of Bodega Vega Sicilia by planting Bordeaux grape varieties in addition to the famous Tempranillo, a black grape typical of the area. Today, after its acquisition by the Álvarez family in 1982, Vega Sicilia embodies the values ​​of excellence, patience and respect for the land for wines that are simply out of the ordinary. Unique property representing a total of almost 1,000 hectares, Vega Sicilia is at the head of a 200 hectare vineyard, testifying to an incredible wealth and diversity of terroirs in which the course of the Duero River has a decisive influence. If the legacy of Vega Sicilia originates in the heart of the province of Castile, in the wine-growing area of ​​DO Ribera del Duero, the prestigious Bodega is also present in the DO Toro appellation. Mythical Iberian estate, Vega Sicilia offers exceptional wines, with emblematic cuvées such as Valbuena or Unico. True banner of the Bodega, Unico comes from an extremely careful selection of 40 plots cumulating 10 years of aging before being marketed, which makes it one of the longest periods of aging in the world for a exceptional wine. Born from exceptional terroirs in which the vines benefit from constant attention, raised with the greatest respect for traditions, Vega Sicilia wines are quite simply very great wines.
