Located in the village of Mucientes in the province of Valladolid, Bodegas Sinforiano was founded in 1966 by Sinforiano Vaquero and Daniela Gomez, who began with just a handful of vines and a tiny cellar.
The estate, now managed by their children, is notable for its remarkable old vineyards of Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) in the Pisuerga valley and on the hillsides of the Montes de Torozos at an altitude of 740m. The low, bush-trained vines, ranging in age between 40 and 120 years old, are grown in gravelly soils with a deep layer of clay- limestone. Winemaker Ruth Sierra de la Gala makes a range of wines from the 70 hectares of vines at their new cellar winemaking cellar.
