Few wines have a history as distinguished as that of Vega Sicilia. At Vega Sicilia in Ribera del Duero, two hours from Madrid, Tempranillo proved its potential for greatness. When the estate's original founder, Don Eloy Lecanda Chaves, returned from France with cuttings of Bordeaux varietals, he planted them alongside the indigenous variety, then known simply as Tinto del Pais, or "Country Red", but today is known as Tinto Fino or Tempranillo. Surprisingly, it was the Tempranillo that produced the superior wine.
Today, the market for Vega Sicilia is one of scarcity and increasing demand. Vega Sicilia's growing fame and desirability are a testament to the estate's enduring legacy and the world's craving for wines of history and noble bearing.
