HISTORY


Viyuela was built in 2003 by the Viyuela`s family with the idea of keeping the vineyards inherited from their fathers implicating as well the family on the development of the small town where the winery is located and where the family originally is from.

The winery is located in Boada de Roa/Pedrosa de Duero, considered one of the best Ribera del Duero`s area and where in around four square miles other very prestigious wineries are based on.

The winery makes all its wines with vineyards varietal tempranillo of exceptional quality between 20 to 60 years old vines, all of them not further than 2 miles away from the winemaking building.

LA BODEGA
