It is estate bottled by Real Sitio de Ventosilla with the utmost care and is a great complement to beef and game dishes, as well as other hearty pasta fare. The signature of PradoRey's winemaker guarantees this wine.PradoRey's history dates back to 1503 when the Count of Ribadeo sold the Real Sitio de Ventosilla estate to Queen Isabel the Catholic. It remained in the Corona de Castilla until 1521 when Carlos I donated it to Marques de Denia II. In 1600 his descendant, the Duke of Lerma, begins the estate's agricultural and livestock colonization and built a royal palace. The property has remained in the hands of royalty until the nineteenth century when it became the property of the Duke of Caldas, who subleased the estate. Since 1921, the property passed into private ownership who converted it into a model agricultural and ranching operation. From the heart of Spain's premier wine-producing region, PradoRey Ribera del Duero Crianza is made with tempranillo grapes. Before its release, this wine spends 12 months in barriques (small barrels) made of American oak, 3 months in French oak made from Nevers, and 15 months in the bottle.
