Producer Information: Bodegas Alion

The vineyards of Bodegas Vega Sicilia are at the edge of the Ribera del Duero and the winery’s fame helped earn the region its DOC in 1982. Originally founded in 1864, it was originally mostly planted with Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, along with the more traditional plantings of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and Malbec. Nowadays 80% of the vineyard area is planted with Tinto Fino.

Bodegas Vega Sicilia produces three wines, all red. Vega Sicilia Unico, which is restricted to the best vintages and is released after spending about ten years in a combination of wooden tanks, small, new barriques, large, old barrels and bottles. Valbuena is a five-year old vintage-dated wine aged in American oak. The third wine produced is the multi-vintage Reserva Especial.

In 2001, Pintia, Vega Sicilia’s bodega in the Toro region, produced its first vintage and, in 2004, Vega Sicilia created the Macán estate in Rioja in a joint venture with Barón Edmond de Rothschild.
