    "On the nose, the Crianza has ripe red fruit and floral aromas with hints of spices, especially vanilla, as well as hints of incense, violets, cedar, black cherry and blueberry. On the palate it is rich and structured – the tannins are smooth with similar fruit characters as on the nose. The oak influence is perfectly balanced with the fruit. The finish is smooth and persistent"

     

  •  PRADO REY

    Prado Rey is a winery with tons of history: In 1503, Queen Isabella of Castile buys the farm for 2,286,333 maravedís from the Count of Ribadeo. In the year 1600, Francisco Gómez Sandoval y Rojas, first Duke of Lerma and Prime Minister of King Philip III, built a palace, possibly designed by the royal architect Francisco Mora, to entertain the King when he visited the Royal Site of Ventosilla. On year 1603, Lope de Vega staged plays in the gardens of the Palace of Ventosilla for King Philip III and Rubens also visited the estate. In 1921,  an hydroelectric dam was built on THE DUERO RIVER which still provides electricity for the estate, and the winery. Later, in 1928, King Alfonso XIII named the estate Real Site of Ventosilla a model agricultural concern. It wasn't until 1989, when Javier Cremades de Adaro, and agronomist who loved the countryside, acquired the estate and planted the first 200 hectares which would eventually grow to 520 ha spread over eight terroirs: Hoyo Dornajo, La Mina, Prado del Rey, El Pino, Los Robles, Valdelayegua, Salgüero and La Recorba. Finally, in 1996, Prado Rey produces it's first vintage of red and rosé Ribera del Duero wine launched under the brand name PRADOREY.
