Overview

Tucked into a bend of the Ribera del Duero, Finca Villacreces is bordered by Vega Sicilia on one side and vineyards owned by Peter Sisseck of Pingus on the other. This contiguous 110 ha estate (64 ha planted to vines) has a terroir of sandy loam soils with layers of gravel and pebbles that have been deposited over eons. These poor and porous soils result in wines of both finesse and concentration.
