Founded in 1984 by Gregorio Garcia Alvarez, Yolanda and Carolina Garcia Viadero. Valduero is one of the pioneer wineries that form the D.O Ribera del Duero. Their sole objective was to become one of the most prestigious wineries in Spain and Europe. Needless to say, they succeeded, receiving numerous international awards and building a stellar celebrity clientele. The Barrel Club (La Tenada De Valduero) consists of only 175 members including Cristiano Ronaldo, Ken Follett, Mark Knopfler, Vicente del Bosque and many more. Valduero believe that excellence and quality come from natural viticulture and human nurture instead of industrialized plantations and technology. Something truly unique about Valduero are the underground caves which were excavated into the hillside of the estate for the purpose of storing and aging wine. The hillside cellar currently holds more than 3800 barrels of wine aging patiently underground. Frogitt & Vonkel are the first to bring these wines into South Africa.
