  • PINEA is born of the founders desire to make a wine on a par with the world's finest. Its name is inspired by a beautiful and majestic Pinus Pinea tree, which is probably one of the oldest and tallest in the region. Surrounded by old vines, it has been witness to centuries of history. PINEA is a hand-made, artisanal wine made with the heart. Crafted with care and respect for its origins, it also faithfully reflects the terroir and the passion of everyone involved in its creation. It is made from old vines, grown on clay-loam terrain at high altitude. The Pinea winery is characterized by its minimal intervention approach to precision viticulture, key to ensuring that the grape is able to express itself fully. PINEA is aged in and blended from new fine-grained French oak barrels of medium toast, which respect the fruit during the aging process. Perfection is sought at each and every stage of winemaking, in order to successfully create a wine in which fruit plays a leading role, integrated with the complexity of oak. A unique wine. Elegant. Subtle. Perhaps one of the very best in the world.

  • 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.
