The idea of acienda Monasterio arises in 1990, when Peter Sisseck arrives in Ribera del Duero to manage the winery and plant the vineyards. Two years later, Carlos de la Fuente joined the team as Peter's right-hand man.
Hacienda Monasterio is set in an estate of 160 hectares, of which 78 are planted with vineyards. It is located between Pesquera and Valbuena de Duero, two Duero valley towns famous for the quality of their wines.
At the end of the XIX century, the estate was owned by the Lecanda family who pioneered a new form of wine production in this area.
The current wine cellar was built betwen 1991 and 1992 and as designed by the french architect Philippe Maziéres, who had previously worked for prestigious wine cellars such as Château Margaux, Château d'Yquem Prieure-Léchiné.
Organic viticulture focuses primarily on the connection with the environment, respecting the nature's laws. Committed agricultural practices are carried out, without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers, taking care of the environment and its landscape.
