History

The Aalto project was founded in 1999 and launched. Oenologist Mariano Garcia, previously working for the Bodega Vega Secilia for 30 years, and Javier Zaccagnini, previously with the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin Authority, brought the project to life. The aim of the two professionals was to make a wine of the highest quality, which captures the soul of the famous Ribera del Duero. Herbicides and fertilizers are completely eliminated during cultivation. Short pruning, hand picking, the grapes are processed separately from different localities and blended at the end of the fermentation process. This gives the Aalto a balanced complexity that can almost be described as unique. Today, Aalto and Aalto PS are among the best red wines Spain has produced. And so a dreamy project became one of the most famous bodegas in the world.

Terroir
