In the heart of the Ribera del Duero, Rafael Sastre has fulfilled his dream and that of the whole family: his own winery! After decades of experience in viticulture, including at the Virgen de la Asuncion cooperative, Viña Sastre was founded in 1992. Grandfather Severiano Sastre, father Rafael Sastre and the two sons Pedro and Jesus all, without exception, devote themselves heart and soul to the family business. Its spreading success is the result of meticulous and diligent work. The wines are not only produced with blood, sweat and tears, but also strictly biodynamically. The commitment to the highest quality is unparalleled and this is reflected in the consistently high level of quality. The house's best-known wines, Pago de Santa Cruz, Pesus and Regina Vides, are extracted from special plots of the vineyards, which were planted 60 years ago.
The vineyards for this wine stretch along the banks of the Duero, in the immediate vicinity of La Horra, they are located at an altitude of 800 meters. The vines for the 100% pure Tempranillo are between 80-90 years old. At Sastre, exclusively bio-dynamic viticulture is practiced, so fertilizers, plant protection products, etc. were completely dispensed with. A long aging in new wooden barrels of French oak benefited the wine.
