The wine

Peņafiel is particularly renowned for producing red wine, which is divided into four varieties depending on the ageing and the type of barrel: young, crianza (aged for 2 years with at least 6 months in oak), reserva (aged for at least 3 years with at least 1 year in oak) and gran reserva (aged for at least 5 years with at least 18 months in oak).

Ribera del Duero wine is currently one of the most world-famous varieties, but the boom of wine culture and tourism in Peņafiel didn’t happen overnight. It has been forged over the centuries. The researchers working on the Pintia archaeological site have found important evidence of wine-related implements used by the Vaccaei people, some of which date back to the 4th century BC.
