VINES WITHIN WALLS

The Winery

The Convento San Francisco winery was founded in 1998. It is housed within the 13th century remains of the San Francisco convent in Peñafiel at the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero. Full advantage has been taken of old buildings that have stood the test of time, by renovating them to create century-old spaces for the production of fine wine. Full respect is given to the region’s ancient wine-making traditions while at the same time incorporating new technology into the production process. Starting from the principal that no two harvests are the same, we aim to interpret each harvest individually in order to achieve the best expression of the grapes. The result is pleasant wines with personality that are capable of satisfying experts as well as current-day lovers of fine wine.
