San Pedro Regalado is a wine co-operative founded in 1958 in the Ribera del Duero region. Combined efforts reap greater rewards than what each winemaker would if working individually. All of the grapes are sourced from the small co-operatively owned vineyards around the village of La Aguilera and many of the vines are 100 years old.
Bodegas Pedro Regalado owns 2 vineyards, named ‘Embocadero’ and ‘Canta Perdices.’ Embocadero means ‘mouth of the river’ where small paddle boats can be docked.
Bright violet color with dark berry and vanilla oak aromas. Black and blue fruit flavors with a touch of black chocolate. Balanced with some minerality. Soft, spicy finish.
The Ribera del Duero is considered one of the most prestigious wine regions in Spain. It concentrates almost entirely on the production of fine red wines using the Tempranillo grape (known locally as Tinto del Pais). In Ribera del Duero Tempranillo yields smaller berries, loose clusters and tougher skin, which encourages more skin-to-juice contact and promotes full-bodied, powerful wines that still retain the grape’s renowned elegance. This combination of power and elegance represents Tempranillo’s signature in Ribera del Duero, and the region’s greatest contribution to winemaking today.
