Ribera del Duero

More than 2400 years ago, in the 4th Century BC, Celtiberians in the Peñafiel area started producing wine.

The Romans who occupied the region in the Ist century BC, bound the crop and introduced new varieties. After the Reconquest of the Christian kingdoms in the 11th century, the Cistercian French monks near Peñafiel brought new forming techniques used until nowadays.

The Polo family founded this winery "Hijos de Antonio Polo" in 1998. Since then, they have been creating finely aged wines here in Peñafiel, the heart of Ribera del Duero.

Teodoro Arenales is responsible for the vineyard and Antonio Polo the winery.

The first wine was the 1999 vintage.

The property has 18 hectares, divided into compartments planted with vines, some that had been already planted and others of a new planting, all the while respecting the soil.

Some vines are 100 years old, others 90, 50 and 15 years old ,we grow our grapes by optimizing the use of the natural reserves of the vine.
