How we started

Viyuela family, decided to give a strong boost to its winemaking activity, dating back to the early nineteenth century, by building a modern winery in their hometown, Boada de Roa. In this place, already their ancestors elaborated wine in a traditional way the prestigious frame of the DO  Ribera del Duero.

In this rural environment of humble people, the historical references of our family are lost in time. For many years, for Viyuela family and its neighbours this village and vineyards have been their little big world.

Wineyards

Our vineyards are located in the best area of the region, with an altitude of 812 meters and not farer than 3 kilometers away from the winery, which allows us to get the grapes very fresh to our.

In our region we have very long winters and extreme temperatures in the summer with huge thermal differences between day and night, in addition to that, long periods of drought, which gives to the plants the needed water stress to get grapes with concentration of tannins, sugar, colour and full matured. This is decisive for the quality of the final product.

Con largos inviernos y temperaturas extremas en el verano con enormes diferencias térmicas entre día y noche, además de largos periodos de sequía, logramos una excelente calidad de la uva y una maduración plena. Esto es determinante para la calidad del producto final.

All our vineyards are Tempranillo, the queen grape of the area, which is expressed in its fullness in the Ribera del Duero and offers aromas of red and black fruits, with a sweet and silky tannin. The Tinta Fina variety assimilates excellently the long periods of aging necessary for high quality wines.

Our Passion

Each wine is highlights not only the grape variety, climate and our clay and calcareous soils, also our passion for wine. We take care of every detail throughout the process to offer the best quality in our wines, bringing to the consumer red wines with complexity, which invites to drink and enjoy.

Our dream is to let consumers feel the love that we give to the complete proccess every day and share your good times with Viyuela wines, trying to help you to keep wonderful memories.

We thrive in making fine wines that enrich the taste&soul.
