Since 1950 Avelino Vegas has been producing excellent quality wines in the DO Rueda and Ribera del Duero.
Wine that reflects the style of Avelino Vegas winery in the elaboration of a 100% Verdejo, Denomination of Origin Rueda, wine aged on its fine lees.
Winery founded in 1950 by Avelino Vegas in the Segovian town of Santiuste de San Juan Bautista. The winery began its activity producing wines with grapes from the area. Today, several members of the third generation are incorporated into the management of the business.
Cristina Vegas, granddaughter of the founder (biotechnologist and National Diploma of Oenology from the University of Bordeaux) leads the oenological direction. The winery controls centuries-old, low-yield vineyards in different unique locations.
These soils have a limestone and sandy component in the case of Ribera del Duero that, added to a special climate, produce a Tempranillo of extraordinary quality. In the case of the D.O. Rueda, the sandy and stony terrain is magnificent for the natural water control of the vineyard. The thermal jumps of more than 20º degrees during the summer contribute to the Segovian Verdejo having a unique singularity.
The winery is located in Santiuste de San Juan Bautista, area of the D.O. Rueda belonging to the province of Segovia, where the Verdejo grape has been cultivated for centuries and where it shows a unique character. A magnificent sculptural group created by the artist Cristóbal Gabarrón that commemorates the centenary of its founder Avelino Vegas, welcomes us at the entrance.
