Valduero is a family owned winery and one of the pioneers and most prestigious at the mythical Ribera del Duero area in Spain.
The winery was founded in 1984 by the sisters García-Viadero and is today the second largest land owner in Ribera del Duero, with 200 Ha of vineyard, highly valued and with large quantity of old vine.
Yolanda García Viadero, daughter of the founder and a trained agronomist, discovered at that time the traditional viticulture of the region and also the Tinto Fino variety that is a product of its vines. She describes this grape as being “exceptional and unique in Spain, with a strong sense of terroir in its character, which gives structure and acidity to the wines, putting them on the same level as the best wines in the world”.
This is the fundamental concept behind the philosophy of Valduero, which nowadays has become the standard practice of the winery. At Valduero, we have always maintained that wines should be excellent in every respect in order to satisfy and give pleasure to the consumer. For this reason, they are kept and aged in our winery until they have reached a great harmony and balance that is always based on their power.
