Vinos Valtuille is a small boutique winery owned by the García Alba family. The land is dominated by nearly thirty acres of old, beautiful vineyards that extend from the village to the heart of the historic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. The reigning variety here is Mencia, planted in small plots on clay slopes, allowing for optimal ripening. However, the beauty of this unique landscape lies not only in the countryside but in the character of its people. Vinos Valtuille was founded in 1999, but the vine-growing and winemaking traditions of its ancestors date back to 1910. Today, the winemaking duties are in the self-taught hands of Marco García Alba, one of Bierzo’s current crop of rising-star winemakers and growers. In early 2000, the family embarked on the challenge of producing high-quality wines and elevating the image of their region. They made numerous investments to update the facilities and successfully obtained the technical resources to achieve this dream. The attention to detail and the meticulous manner in which he cares for the vineyards ensures that each harvest yields rich fruit, year after year.
Location of Vineyard
Located in the small village of Valtuille de Abajo, burrowed at the foot of an old Roman settlement in the province of Leon, in northern Spain.
The estate’s philosophy is clear, placing care for the land at the very top of the ladder, guaranteeing quality from vine to bottle. This idea is an homage to founder Dimas Garcia’s roots—especially his grandfather, Antonio.
