Characteristics Avelino Vegas Áureo

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Avelino Vegas Áureo is a Tempranillo variety red wine produced by the Avelino Vegas winery in the D.O. Ribera de Duero.

In 1950, Avelino Vegas founded this winery in the town of Santiuste de San Juan Bautista (Segovia) with the aim of producing quality wines using local varieties like Tempranillo and Verdejo. Over time, the project has grown so much that now, the third generation of the Vegas family produces wines in Ribera de Duero, V.T Castilla y León, Cigales and Rioja.

Avelino Vegas Áureo comes from vineyards with an average age of 50 years old. These are old vines with low yields, planted in limestone and sandy soils and bathed by a Mediterranean continental climate. They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is carried out in 12 kg boxes by plot according to their quality.


In the winery, the Avelino Vegas Áureo grapes are cooled to a temperature of 3°C in a cold room. After 24 hours, they are selected and destemmed without being crushed. After going through a cold skin-contact maceration for 5 days, alcoholic fermentation begins at a maximum temperature of 28ºC. Then malolactic fermentation takes place in the barrel, in stainless steel tanks and in oval concrete tanks. Finally, it ages in new French oak barrels and concrete tanks for 14 months.

Avelino Vegas Áureo is a red wine whose name means ‘golden ratio’. An irrational number that is found in nature itself and, like this wine, seeks the perfect balance.
