Maestro Tejero winery in Peñafiel was born in 1998 in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. From 2000 to 2006 the winery grew, gradually adding other plots in Castrillo de Duero, Olmos de Peñafiel, Quintanilla de Arriba, Bocos de Duero, Olmedillo de Roa, and Arauzo de Salce. In 2007 the search for land on higher ground leads to the discovery of land in Valtiendas nearly 1,000 meters above sea level with old tempranillo vineyards planted on soils with boulders. The diversity of plants and soils give the wines a unique, distinct personality.
The wine typifies Maestro’s delicate touch and is alive with dark, ripe brambles and cassis striking a perfect balance of perfume, power and refinement. Bursting with spicy dark cherry, liquorice and mineral notes and flavours, there's a delicious wild herb note on both the nose and palate that integrates well into the tannins for juicy, lingering finish.
