The company: a six generations history

Six generations devoted to caring for wine, love of work well done, and close monitoring of the vineyard. A long history for the oldest Rueda winery that has successfully adapted to new times while respecting the legacy of over a century of experience. Wine is created in the vineyard. It is the grape that marks the splendour of a Vinos Sanz wine. It is good care and prayers, the patient wait for the vine to sprout and land that is hale and hearty but hard on the vine which makes the difference . Terroir wine shaped by climate, soil and man that makes for elegant drinking.

HISTORY

Back in 1870 a family from La Seca, Known as the Donatos, believed in their land’s still uncertain potential to produce white wines, wines made from the almost unknown local variety called Verdejo.

The wine was sold by the arroba for 12 or 13 reales and transported in carts pulled by oxen and mules.

On 12 January 1980 the Denominación de Origen Rueda was established in recognition of the quality and special properties of these white wines made from a variety that was unique in the world. Vinos Sanz, the oldest winery in the region, joined in this endeavour by building new facilities in Rueda, endowing it with the most advanced wine technology of the moment for the sake of a greater quality in the wine.

PHILOSOPHY & EXPANSION

Firmly convinced that the highest quality of a product depends mainly on its raw materials, at Vinos Sanz we focus our efforts on conserving the maximum expression of the vineyard, exercising meticulous care in the grape production process, step by step and day by day, nursing over the masterful transformation of grapes into wine and thus providing our personal touch, in the knowledge that we are being true to our principles of: quality and tradition.

In the 21st century we are faced with new challenges, such as the steady increase of our winerys international presence. To address these challenges, Vinos Sanz is preparing an architectural project to build a new winery in the heart of Rueda. This project will combine our traditional tastes with cutting edge architecture, technology and amenities.

In addition, we have started a new project in the Denomination of Origin Wines of Madrid, thus expanding our range of products with red wines from this wine area.
 

OUR AWARDS

Year after year, our wines have been awarded by the main national and international competitions that highlight the brilliance of the product, its elegance and its personality. This is our track record.
