Aalto is a prestigious winery located in Spain's Ribera del Duero region. The winery is known for producing high-quality red wines, primarily made from the Tempranillo grape variety, locally known as Tinto Fino. Aalto was founded in 1998 as a joint venture between the renowned Spanish winemaker Mariano García and Javier Zaccagnini.

Aalto Winery's key points

  1. Founders: Mariano García, former winemaker at Vega Sicilia, and Javier Zaccagnini, former president of the Ribera del Duero Consejo Regulador, joined forces to create Aalto.

  2. Location: Aalto's vineyards are situated in the Ribera del Duero, which is one of Spain's most acclaimed wine regions, known for its robust and age-worthy red wines.

  3. Vineyards: Aalto's vineyards are located in various subzones of Ribera del Duero, where the Tempranillo vines thrive in the region's diverse soils and continental climate. The winery emphasizes traditional and sustainable viticultural practices.

  4. Winemaking Philosophy: Aalto focuses on crafting wines that express the unique terroir of Ribera del Duero. The winemaking process involves a combination of modern and traditional techniques, with an emphasis on preserving the character of the Tempranillo grape.

  5. Wines: Aalto is particularly known for its flagship wine, "Aalto PS" (Aalto Pagos Seleccionados). This wine is made from a selection of old vines and is considered the winery's top expression. Additionally, they produce other wines such as Aalto and Aalto Ribera del Duero, which showcase the depth and complexity of Ribera del Duero wines.

  6. Critical Acclaim: Aalto wines have received high praise from critics and enthusiasts alike. The wines are often recognized for their concentration, structure, and ability to age gracefully.

  7. Ownership Change: It's worth noting that in 2018, Mariano García retired from Aalto, and the winery underwent changes in ownership. Javier Zaccagnini continued his involvement in the project.
