In 1995 and 1996 Vega Sicilia started to think of a new winery and the locations in Spain where it could be set up. Castilla y León has a large river, the Duero, which is where their two existing wineries, Vega Sicilia and Alion are located. The region of Toro is 100 km away along the same river. It has been a famous wine-producing region for centuries and enjoys great prestige. After the first four grape harvests (1997-2000), Vega Sicilia realised that they would have to preserve, extract and protect everything that would convert Pintia into an elegant wine within the austerity of the region, i.e. delicate tannins embraced by the aroma of fresh fruit whilst avoiding overripeness and liquorice aromas. This is Pintia’s defining philosophy.
