The Hacienda Monasterio estate is
located in the valley of the Duero River, halfway between Pesquera and Valbuena
de Duero, in the province of Valladolid, in what is known as the Golden Mile.
Located on a southern hillside, the estate covers 160 hectares, 78 of wich are
planted with vines.
Crafted by mastermind Peter Sisseck of
Pingus fame, Hacienda Monasterio is a certified organic, no expense spared
Ribera that was originally planted with cuttings from Vega Sicilia some 20-plus
years ago, and is producing some of the region's great bottlings now that those
vines are mature. Since
the property's founding in 1991, Hacienda Monasterio continues to innovate and
seek new ways to make wines that embody the region's potential for power
combined with elegance and finesse.
