The idea of Hacienda Monasterio arises in 1990, Peter Sisseck arrives in Ribera del Duero to direct the winery and plant the vineyards. Two years later Carlos de la Fuente joined the team as Peter's right hand man. The farm consists of 167 hectares, 108 of which are planted with vineyards. It is located halfway between the towns of Pesquera and Valbuena de Duero, known worldwide as "the golden mile" for the high quality of its wines.
At the end of the 19th century, the estate was part of the properties of the Lecanda family, a pioneer in the new winemaking tradition in the area.
The winery, built between 1991 and 1992, was designed by the French architect Philippe Mazières, who had previously worked in wineries as prestigious as Château Margaux, Château d'Yquem Prieure-Léchiné.
