HISTORY OF WINE

In the DO Valtiendas and DO Ribeira del Duero, viticulture goes back to the Cistercian monks of St. Bernard who arrived in the 12th century. They imported vines from France and Catalonia, but they knew how to adapt them to the ground and give fame to their wines.

The production of white wines in the Segovian Countryside area goes back to time immemorial, and so demonstrate the wineries in the subsoil, not to mention later ones like the Parral Monastery. Here, wines were made for both their own consumption and for selling to the city of Segovia and other regions.
