The De Santiago family goes back to the early 1900s as regards its wine-making roots, and four generations have followed in the footsteps of ancestors who used to make wine for their own use in a wine cellar dug into the rock. This project took off in 1997, when the company was founded and set up in the heart of the Ribera del Duero in Peñafiel. Most of their vineyards are located at an altitude of 900 metres or more, with many lying above the village of Pesquera de Duero. In their Baños de Valdearados vineyards there are tiny parcels of old vines, with the oldest being pre-phylloxera and dating back to 1880, which manage to thrive on the extreme temperatures of day and night, in the summer and winter.
Awards, recognition and accolades have followed over the years, both at home and abroad, as a reward for their hard work tending the vineyards and for their commitment to making improvements, to producing wines that last and stand the test of time. Their style is essentially classic but with a modern accent, and their intention is to create intense, full-bodied wines.
