HISTORY

Winemaking has always been a tradition in the village of Fompedraza, although some of the vineyards disappeared with the agricultural reconvention.

The Benito Hernando brothers, Fernando, Gaspar and Javier, owners of Bodegas Briego, have recovered this tradition that their father was already exercising in the 60's. They have called this project of fight and illusion Briego, synonym of fight - fight for the quality of this wine, fight to defend rural life and fight to revive the village of Fompedraza.

They started by buying back vineyards. In 1988, they began replanting in the municipalities of Curiel de Duero, Pesquera, Peñafiel and Fompedraza. Today they own 70 hectares in production and they control the quality and production of vineyards of more than 60 years old. In 1992, their dream finally came true when they elaborated their fist wine under the D.O. Ribera del Duero.

WINERY

Their wines are produced from their best grape, the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), which has been carefully selected to match the different types of wine - Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva - and undergo a controlled fermentation to obtain the best quality in terms of body, structure, fruit aromas, etc.

After resting for a few months in stainless-steel vats and clarifying through the cold winter months, the wine starts to age in French and American oak barrels. They currently stock 500 American oak barrels and 450 French oak ones.

Their commitment to quality drives them to carry out exhaustive control of temperature and humidity and to renew the barrels every five years. Once the wine is aged in oak, they carry out the final blending of the wine that, after the bottling process will rest in the cellar to mature and improve the aromas.
