The history of Bodega Valtravieso
began in 1985, when an experimental vineyard was planted near Piñel de Arriba in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The first plantings were in the La Revilla estate. One decade later, the first wine was produced: Valtravieso Crianza 1996, a quality wine with a delightful personality. Production continued in the following vintages but remained quite small until 2002, when the operation was acquired by Pablo González Beteré, who launched an innovative project: the New Valtravieso.
The philosophy of Beteré's new project was simple: maximize the potential of the natural resources offered by the land to craft great Ribera del Duero wines. To that end, Bodega Valtravieso combined traditional production methods and modern technology. A new winery facility, completed in 2007, increased the potential production of the estate and provided the tools necessary to grow and hone the quality of the wines. Today the estate employs a winery of 4,500 square meters (48,438 square feet) to receive the fruit from a property of 73 hectares (180 acres) divided among four terroirs: La Revilla, Santa Maria, El Buey, and El Obispo.
