Buy wine from Vega Sicilia

Description

Vega Sicilia

Established in 1864, the Vega Sicilia winery stands on the banks of the river Duero; it owns two hundred hectares of vineyards where the local Tempranillo variety accounts for 80% and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec the rest. Both the number of vines per hectare and their yield are carefully limited so that each produces less than two kilos. This ensures that the grapes are packed with all the mineral and nutritional elements provided by the soil. Although Vega Sicilia follows a traditional philosophy it has incorporated the latest vinification technology. It also owns two thousand oak barrels made by the most famous coopers of Nevers (France). However, Vega Sicilia also crafts its own barrels out of American oak from Ohio, which allows it to control their toasting process.
