Bodegas y Viñedos Anzil, D.O. Toro has 90 hectares of Tinta de Toro vines that extend across the Guareña River Valley, between hills and forests, near to the town of Villabuena del Puente.
With the winery at the foot of the vines, Finca Anzil is distinguished by the close rapport between the vineyards and the winemaking. The soil conditions and diverse microclimates are favourable for vine development. Research and technology are key to the production process.
The facilities are designed for the careful crafting of wines on a small scale. The objective is to allow the wines to fully express their true character, defined by depth and finesse.
At the foot of Laguardia, between the Sierra de Cantabria and the sinuous course of the Ebro, Bodegas Palacio keeps the dynamic spirit of its origins alive, the moment in 1894 when Cosme Palacio took charge of his family’s winery.
Here the treasure lies in the vines. Protected by the imposing rocks of the Sierra Cantabria Mountains, Tempranillo and Viura vines find their ideal conditions here. High altitude, chalky-clay soils, south facing, a unique microclimate with Mediterranean and Atlantic influences. A great potential for finesse, nurtured with the utmost care.
The winery has always been characterised for bringing together tradition and innovation. Pioneering decisions include exhaustive grape selection procedures, the separate vinification of each parcel of wines, ageing in the finest, new French oak barrels and long maceration periods. Thanks to this, the wines are a unique example of harmony, balance and expressivity.
Located in the so-called "Golden Mile", the most prestigious area of the designation, Bodegas and Viñedos Viña Mayor brings together the Ribera del Duero's great strengths. The same drive for innovation that marked our first steps as one of the first wineries to form part of the D. O. in 1986. A deep respect for its surroundings and the local landscape of hills and slopes that look over the majestic course of the Duero River. And the pronounced elegance that emanates from the beautiful vineyards that surround the winery.
Our viticulture is deeply rooted in tradition. We seek to maximise the expression of a land of an austere beauty and make wines with a contemporary spirit. Our range, now re-launched with the great global and forward-looking vision of our winemaker Almudena Alberca, is recognised and awarded in the world's leading guides and competitions.
Our active commitment to the environment is clearly defined. We are certified under the Wineries for Climate Protection (WfCP) initiative since 2011, which has the objective of conserving habitats, traditions and winemaking culture in light of a phenomenon of fundamental importance for vines: climate change.
The Fernández de Piérola winery was founded in 1996 with the aim of producing quality wines with a personality different from the standardized taste of most Rioja wines. With these two objectives in mind, we established our small family winery, from the family vineyards we own in Moreda (Rioja Alavesa), a traditional winemaking region.
The Winery is supplied only with grapes originating from Moreda's vineyards, 50 % from our own and the rest from other growers.
