Linked to the Church, which was the estate’s first owner through the Cathedral Chapter of Valladolid (22 canons). However, after the Mendizabal entailment, it changed ownership.
Sold in 1842, Don Toribio de Lecanda y del Campo erected a Basque-style country house commemorating his homeland. Today, it is used as the owners’ residence. Consequently, the Winery (founded in 1988) is situated in the large buildings built by Teodosio de Lecanda y Chaves in his time and used as silos. The Grandparents of the present owners (Luis Sanz), Idelfonso Cid and his wife Vicenta Sánchez, bought it in 1931.
Restored 150 Years afterwards, the 80-cm thick walls keep the wine in sound condition. The estate boasts 600 Hectares of Tinto Fino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Albillo. First to plant grapevines in the reforestation of the Duero, the estate has seen the flourishing of Stone Pine Woods, Arbequina Olive Groves, Sugar Beet and cereals, and integrated a reconditioned irrigation system (Luis Sanz, who owns the country house, is president of the Canal de Riaza Irrigators Association).
Incorporated within the complex is a dining-room for business meetings or conferences, 4x4 Tracks and Anti-stress Programmes for executives.
