The history of Vega-Sicilia began in 1848, when Basque landowner Don Toribio Lecanda met the bankrupt Marques de Valbuena and bought a 2,000 hectare estate. Don Toribio’s son later brought in 18,000 young vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec, Merlot and Pinot Noir from France to begin the vineyard.
Early wines were sold off in bulk as Rioja, but in 1929, the 1917 and 1918 wine won awards at the World’s Fair. Steady progress was made at making great wines, and today Vega-Secilia arguably stands at the pinnacle of wines from Spain.
Join us as we talk with Puri Mancebo, Bodegas Vega-Sicilia’s Export Manager, about this historic winery, and its past and present.
