The winery

Legaris it lies in a territory of privileged, with a climate unique and exclusive of the D. The. Ribera del Duero. A new project that was born from the union of two ideas: the tradition of a land and the modernity of a society that advances by leaps and bounds. Innovation plays a decisive role, not only in your
production but also in its design and image. A clear way to define your wine, the way you do, and your soul. The harvest of Legaris arises between more than two thousand years of cultivation of the life of the Ribera del Duero and has as objective: create a wine unique and full of personality.

At the end of 1998, the Codorníu Group materialized their presence in the D. O. Ribera del Duero with the purchase of 90 hectares of land in the municipalities of Curiel de Duero (Valladolid) and San Martín de Rubiales (Burgos).

Just a few months later, in the spring of 1999, they planted the first vineyards, and in April of 2000 he was beginning to establish itself as the future bodega Legaris. The first wines of the winery, from selected vineyards, are a Foster and a Book that went to market for the first time at the beginning of 2003.

The two vineyards of Legaris have been planted with Thin Ink, although it is expected that within a period of time a 20% of the lands are devoted to the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is situated at a height of between 700 and 850 meters above sea level soil loose, abundant in limestone, poor in iron and low fertility.

The building that houses Legaris was designed and built by the architect Domingo Triay, architect, among other works, from the bodegas Raimat and Trough. Legaris has a structure essentially functional and its distribution responds to the rational flow of the process of elaboration of the wine. Located a few kilometres from the town of Peñafiel, the winery is distributed in the form of a cross, on two levels and has a structure markedly cubic.
