“Bodegas Alión was formed in 1986 as a winery which would be run independently to its big brother, the great Vega Sicilia.
This 85-hectare wine estate was founded by the Álvarez family (Pablo Alvarez, the owner, pictured right, who also owns the Toro EstateBodegas Pintia) to provide a modern expression of Ribera del Duero wine.
35 hectares of the estate is located around the winery, with a further 50 hectares dedicated to Alión within the historic Vega Sicilia vineyards.
Unlike Vega Sicilia, where we find a merging of the traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Alión is made using state-of-the-art equipment. Forward and uncompromising, these are wines with impressive frames and show an alternative side of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo).”
