Bodegas Vega Sicilia: among the best wine cellars in the world.
The history of this wine cellar begins in the mid 1800s, in Ribera del Duero, following the obstinacy of the Spanish-born enologist Don Eloy Lacanda y Chaves. Vega Sicilia is born between Valbuena and Quintanilla, an area in the central-northern part of the Iberian Peninsula. The word “vega”, which literally means “fertile plant” has ancient origins, and it is believed to refer to the spontaneous vegetations that grow along the left side of the Duero river.
The name “Sicilia”, instead, has nothing to do with the Italian region, but rather comes from “Cecilia”, who was once the owner of the hill where the vineyards grew. It is the same person to whom many centers in the area of Castilla y León are dedicated.
Vega Sicilia wines are not born by chance. They are the final product of special combinations, environmental factors, and accurate production methods. Today, the winery covers 1000 hectares, and strictly respects nature and all biological parameters.
