Bodegas Vi?a Mayor opened in 1986 in the wake of the birth of the official Denominaci?n de Origen Ribera del Duero certification.
The winery is surrounded by vineyards and completely integrated into the landscape, overlooking the sinuous turns of the Duero River as it passes through Quintanilla de Onsimo. Our wonderful location on the highway from Aranda de Duero to Valladolid places us on the "Golden Mile" of the Ribera del Duero winegrowing region. The winery and cellars have joined modern innovations with the tradition of underground bodegas. This area, hidden underneath the winery, is much larger than the building on the surface, due to the rigid concern with keeping temperatures within the ideal 15-16 degrees.
Vina Mayor's modern installations boast the latest technologies including ageing and storage facilities which utilizes humidity and temperature control systems. It holds 7,000 barrels of the best French and American oak in constant renovation, assuring a more aromatic and elegant differentiation of the wine.
Vina Mayor Reserva 2004 was selected in Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines for 2010.
