Finca Villacreces, a unique natural setting,
amidst its vineyards, the Duero river, and a bi-centennial pine forest

The winery was built at the heart of the Estate so as to preserve its natural surroundings, while at the same time guaranteeing meticulous control in managing every detail of the Villacreces winemaking process.

An Estate with history


The first bibliographical data (1350) belong to Pedro de Villacreces, a Franciscan friar and the first resident on the Estate. He settled in the area together with a group of clergymen, including San Pedro Regalado, patron saint of Valladolid, to devote himself to prayer and to the cultivation of the land. At that time, they already had a small vineyard to make wine for their own consumption as well as for that of the nearby monasteries.

With the Mendizábal confiscation, these lands came into private hands, specifically to the marquisate of Teodosio Alonso-Pesquera, Senator of the Kingdom with Alfonso XIII. Shortly afterwards, the latter granted a royal concession by which Finca Villacreces held rights over the waters of the Duero river.

Early 20th century

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Estate was sold to the Cuadrado family from Valladolid, who utilized it for various agricultural and recreational purposes, as well as for housing illustrious guests. One of them, Peter Sisseck, used the winery and part of the vineyard to produce his Flor de Pingus.

After a long search throughout Ribera del Duero, Gonzalo and Lalo Antón, who already had a winery in Rioja (Izadi) and Toro (Vetus), met the Cuadrado family. Pedro Cuadrado hinted at their interest in disengaging from the wine business and looking for a successor for the Estate. They seized the opportunity to acquire one of the most spectacular estates in Ribera del Duero.

After remodelling the winery and performing painstaking work to restore the vineyard, Villacreces was once again inaugurated. At that time, it also opened its doors to the public and to wine tourism.
