In 2007, Bodegas Pinord, based in Vilafranca del Penedès, acquired a winery in the Ribera del Duero winemaking region of Spain. Their aim was to make different wines, which were almost hand-crafted, based on the love Pinord has for the land and its fruits.
Towards the 6th century BC, the Vaquos were the first people who chose to permanently settle on the Northern Meseta or plain of Castille. They were socially and culturally very advanced and grew grapes to make wine, making it a central element of their social festivities and banquets, as well as during funeral rites.
Pinord would like to pay homage to the Vaquos, by christening their wines, made in Valbuena de Duero, with the name of these pioneering people who chose this fertile and magical land. This land, twenty-five centuries later is still producing exceptional wines which have earned themselves a place of honour amongst the best wines in the world. They are the wines of the Ribera del Duero.
