Vega Sicilia, Spain's "first growth"; and most prestigious wine estate, is located in Ribera del Duero. The Vega Sicilia range includes 3 cuvees: Unico (";unique";) is the flagship, followed by Reserva Especial and Valbuena 5°.

Valbuena 5° is made from younger vines (average vine age of 20-25years), and in years when Unico is not produced grapes normally destined for Unico will go into Valbuena 5°. Valbuena 5° is only released after 5 years' ageing. It is the purest expression of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Vega Sicilia. Tinto Fino is clearly the predominant wine in the assemblage of the varieties that make up this magnificent wine. The other variety used is Merlot, which is added to a greater or lesser extent depending on the vintage.

Spain's "Chateau Latour" has illustrious history, a sense of place, immense respect for tradition and immaculate winemaking. It has laid the foundation for what has become one of the best wine-making regions in Spain, Ribera del Duero.

We are happy to announce that there will be a Valbuena 5° vertical tasting (07’, 08’, 09’, 10’, 11’ & 12') organized by Mr. Pablo Alvarez, General Manager and Co-owner of Vega Sicilia on 29th May (Tuesday). Come and join us to experience this marvelous and magnificent Spanish Wine.
