General information

The first bibliographic data on the existence of this estate on the banks of the Duero belong to its first inhabitant, the Franciscan friar Pedro de Villacreces, from whom it takes its name. Along with him, a group of clergymen, among whom was San Pedro Regalado, patron saint of Valladolid, settled in that privileged wasteland to devote himself to prayer and cultivation of the land, which already had a small vineyard for your own consumption and that of the nearby monasteries.

For several centuries, Villacreces was a retreat center for Franciscan hermits dedicated to reflection and penance, as well as to work in the fields and observe nature. With the arrival of the confiscation of Mendizábal, in 1836, these lands passed into private hands, specifically, to the marquisate of Teodosio Alonso-Pesquera, senator of the kingdom with Alfonso XIII, who shortly afterwards would grant a royal concession for which Finca Villacreces has Duero water rights.

Nebro Tasting Notes

Intense cherry, with garnet tones. Of great varietal expression, with ripe fruit and mineral nuances. In the mouth it is round, fatty, voluptuous, with ripe tannins. Long and persistent.
