In the village centre of Roa de Duero, in the province of Burgos and the centre of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, we find our Bodegas Hercal winery. Since space is limited here, the 20 ha of Tempranillo vineyards are located at the outskirts of the municipalities of Roa, Anguíx and Fuentecen. The grapes are hand picked and put into cases of maximum 15 kg, after which they are immediately transported to the winery. This way, the grapes enter the winery in perfect condition.
The Ribera del Duero project
In 2005 we began producing our own wines at Bodegas Hercal. This decision was made after many decades of wine-growing and selling the grapes to the large and renowned wineries of Ribera del Duero. In our new approach we wanted to make high-quality Tempranillo wines with a contemporary twist, using bio-dynamic techniques. The latter was chosen out of respect and love for our land and environment. We also take into account the advice of the renowned Eduardo Garcia (Mauro). This seemed to be a successful combination, resulting into world class wines that are accessible to everyone. This is proven by the international recognition the products have received up until now and the growth the winery has known since we started producing our own wines.

All wines from Vinitor Wine Group are produced with respect for the environment, trying to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. This results in wines that are good for nature, body and soul.
