Winery Info/ Brand
Valtravieso started out in 1985, when the first vines were planted experimentally on the lands of Piñel de Arriba, in the district of Valladolid, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region. It is the highest winery in Ribera del Duero situated at a height of 915 metres above sea level, the first vintage is 1994 and launched to the market in 1996. In 2002, the winery was acquired by the Gonzalez Beteré family who implemented an innovative project: the 'New Valtravieso', with a new management team under the leadership of Javier Diez, winemaker of prestigious projects in Rioja. The aim was to make Valtravieso a benchmark in terms of quality and innovation within the realm of the Denomination of Origin and the sector in general.
