  • “17 by Pinea”, honors the year 2017, an important year in the life of the Pinea winery when they celebrated the commercial debut of our flagship PINEA. The ‘mountain’ character of their Estate's fruit derives from privileged location (approx. 3,000+ ft. above sea level) where vines 30, 40 and 70+ years of age overcome daunting weather conditions, from snowy winters to sizzling hot summers, with common 40-degree diurnal-nocturnal temperature fluctuations. The lifted, complex aromatics of “17” are the result of passionate viticulture following sustainable and organic practices. Then careful grape selection (hand-harvested) and a non-interventionist approach to vinification allows the fruit to be the star. After patient aging for 20 months in French oak barrels, Pinea's privileged Terroir and attention to detail followed in every step of the wine-making process, result in one of the very best expressions of the Tempranillo varietal.

  • Under the canopy of the massive Pinea tree in the heart of Spain’s legendary Ribera del Duero winemaking region, PINEA founders and longtime friends Vicente Pliego and Hugo T. Del Pozzo had an inspiring conversation that led to an epiphany: that their calling was to use the magnificent characteristics of this land to produce one of the best wines in the world.
