By around 1995, the Álvarez family had already embarked on its incursion into the wine world underpinned by experience and the successful evolution of the group’s gem, Vega Sicilia, and with its new project, Alión, already underway. It was time to broaden its horizons.

In the same way that had happened with the creation of Alión nearly a decade earlier, they carefully studied the possible zones where to implement their new project. After a year of careful study, they were convinced that the Duero is Spain’s great wine-making river. Thus, the new venture focused on the Toro denomination of origin, located one hundred kilometres downstream.

As is the case of all TEMPOS Vega Sicilia wines, the harvest is by hand with the fruit being placed in 12-kg boxes and grapes, once in the winery, they are left in a cold chamber for 12 hours in order to preserve their fruit intensity. Along with the selection on the wine, a double sorting is carried out in the winery. This first removes those bunches that may have been wrongly picked in the field and the second focuses on the substandard berries that are found on optimum bunches. A cold maceration is carried out for 5 days prior to fermentation in oak wood vats.
