The Abadia Retuerta is a Spanish winery founded in 1996 which has won many awards for fine winemaking in their relatively short time as a winemaking establishment. The estate is situated just outside the border of the Ribera del Duero region in Spain’s north central province of Castilla y León, near the village of Sardón del Duero. Twenty miles east of the city of Valladolid, it lies in the heart of an expanse of wine estates stretching from Tudela de Duero to Peñafiel known as “the golden mile”.
The wine making facilities were designed by consulting oenologist Pascal Delbeck, proprietor of Château Ausone, who still works with the estate along with Angel Anocíbar. The winery is conceived around a gravity flow system and features a laboratory and an aging cellar of 5,000-barrel capacity cut into the adjacent mountainside. The wines can be aged in the 80 stainless steel vats, or any combination of the 3,700 Bordeaux-type 225-litre barrels, which are 80% French oak, 20% American oak. Of the French oak, some are derived from Limousin forests, while others are cut from Allier trees. Humidity and temperature are maintained at optimum levels for the wines’ development.
