Ribera del Duero Winery

Bodegas Peñafalcón is a winery with a long family tradition, currently headed by Casimiro, his son and his wife.



The origins of the winery date back to the ancestors of the current owners, who made their wine in the old winepresses, which date back to the 17th century. The culture of wine and the love for the creation of these elegant wines has been passed from generation to generation until it reached Casimiro de Peñafalcón, who made his wine artisanally and in small quantities every year and enjoyed it with family and friends.

In 2000, Casimiro made his dream come true and began to produce and market his wines under the Ribera del Duero designation of origin, in Peñafiel, naming the winery with the historical name of Peñafalcón, which is what this town was called in the 11th century. and remembering the ‘Rhymed Chronicle of Mío Cid’s poem’: Rodrigo won the battle, God be praised, until Peñafalcón, where Peñafiel is called!! Where Peñafalcón is renamed Peñafiel.

The philosophy of Bodegas Peñafalcón is based on taking careful care of the vineyards, doing artisanal work, not adding herbicides but digging the gap by hand, using sulfur, intertwining the shoots and doing green pruning, using sheep manure fertilizers such as in the old days, like our grandparents did. During pruning, the shoots are crushed to provide a greater contribution of organic matter to the soil. The winery’s own vineyards are well positioned on slopes and the soils are stony calcareous. Part of them are in sunny areas, so the ripening is extraordinary. Organic vineyards as a conscience since always.
