Vinedos Alonso del Yerro

Founded in 2002

History

Our philosophy is based on the strength of family, friendship and respect for the environment. This philosophy and our passion for wine led us to create Vinedos Alonso del Yerro. Our winery is located in the very heart of the Ribera del Duero region. We apply traditional techniques to obtain the best harvests and grapes and spare no resources to ensure we produce the highest quality wines.

Lionel Gourgue and Stephane Derenoncourt

This is the story of a passion. The passion shared by the Alonso del Yerro family. Back in 2002, we installed ourselves at Finca Santa Marta (Roa, Burgos), in the D.O. Ribera del Duero, to work a group of plots strictly chosen and planted with Tempranillo grapes. Our intention was clear - to make great quality wines, in accordance with the principles in which we strongly believe -respect towards environment, value of friendship, love for our family, and passion for excellence. From the very beginning, we shared our story with a group of professionals who understand like we do the grounds of great wines. And so, from the beginning of this project we have been advised by Stephane Derenoncourt, renowned oenologist from Bordeaux, and we have gradually formed a young team with great technical competence managed by French oenologist Lionel Gourgue. Thanks to their talent and experience, and to the passion shared by all of us working at Vinedos Alonso del Yerro, we have managed to make two unique wines in Ribera del Duero: Alonso del Yerro and Maria.

Available Wines

Alonso Del Yerro

Type: Cosecha

Deep red color. Powerful nose with ripe fresh fruit, spices and liquorice. The mouth, concentrated, elegantly expresses the floral and licorice aromas of the Tempranillo. Fresh fruit, with a highly roasted touch thanks to the barrel. Silky tannins and a long persistence in mouth.

Maria de Alonso Del Yerro

Floral (violet), black fruit (black cherry, blackberry) with harmonious wood in nose. A strong mouth tightened until the end by the limestone freshness, with a nearly salted touch on the silky tannins which recall the mineral quality of the original terroir.
