More about Hermanos Sastre

It all began with the grandfather of the Sastre family, Severiano, a farmer from La Horra (Burgos), eight kilometres from Roa de Duero, who between some plots distributed here and there,gathered around thirty hectares of land before the Civil War, and made his wines in the underground winery of La Horra.
When the movement of wine cooperatives emerged in 195, alongside an entrepreneurial group of winegrowers, he joined as a founding member of the cooperative of his village, the old Cooperativa de la Horra Virgen de la Asunción.

Little by little, with the profits obtained from the sale of the grapes, he bought more land and planted more vines in their surroundings, alongside his son Rafael, who at the age of 12 was already pruning and harvesting the grapes.
Years go by and Rafael Sastre, shortly after the birth of Pedro, his eldest son, bought the house of Teófilo Reyes, one of the mythical names of Ribera, who at that time moved to the area of ​​Valladolid. He decided that aside from the business of selling grapes to the cooperative, he needed something else, so he began to combine the cultivation of land with his career as a fishmonger.

We must remember that in the sixties and seventies the price of the grapes was low, so it was best to strip the vines from the land and plant cereal. However, in the area of ​​La Horra, this was not an easy thing to do, because the engineers of the Ministry of Agriculture were never able to perform the land assembly.
In addition, almost all the wine that was produced was rosé, and it practically all of it was made in cooperatives. Luckily, in the decade of the 80s, Ribera makes a huge change, the new red wines start to appear, with the emblematic brands, and the brand new D.O. Ribera del Duero. It is in 1992 when he decided to materialise his dream, the one that he had had since he was a child. He left the cooperative and founded his own business, Bodegas Hermanos Sastre, alongside his two sons, Pedro and Jesus Mª, to produce and market their own wine, which they decided to call Viña Sastre.

With some savings and bank loans they bought a small press, a couple of stainless steel deposits, and few American oak barrels. They hired Ayuso, the cooperative's oenologist, to perform the analytical controls of their first wines. The first vintage of Viña Sastre was born from the 1992 harvest, which was almost experimental, and that produced very few bottles.

At that time, Rafael and his son, Jesus Mª, are in charge of the lands and vineyards, whilst Pedro maintains the fishmongers and tries to carry out the first marketing tasks. It is followed by the 93, 94 and 95 harvests, which were also scarce, until in 1996 they manage to launch on the market 160,000 bottles of a structured, powerful, fruity wine, full of nerve and personality.

At that time, Pedro definitively closes the fishmongers and focuses exclusively on the commercial tasks of the winery, which are already a success.  At the same time, the construction of a new and unique winery with a capacity for 300,000 bottles begins. After the death of Rafael in 1998, and shortly after his son Pedro passed away, it was Jesus Mª who took the reins of the winery with the unconditional support of his sister-in-law, Isabel Chico, a team complemented by the work and friendship of Eugenio Bayón, in charge of the management.

Work philosophy

The secret of the wines from HermanosSastre is focused on the privileged location of the vineyards, the work methodology, respect for the land and minimum use of chemicals, as well as a water treatment system used to wash the barrels and other processes, so that they remain free of bacteria, which can cause of odours and strange flavours in the wines.

The family has 45 hectares of their own vineyard within the Denomination of Origin of Ribera del Duero, with soils of a varied composition, with predominance of clayey-calcareous ones, with a meticulous differentiation of the farms by location and by soils, varieties and ages of the vines. There they cultivate the variety Tinta del País, with ages between 50 and 100 years, and some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

In all the vineyards they apply organic and biodynamic viticulture from the first day, reason why all the process is natural and the theory they put into practice results in an express objection to the use of all type of mineral manure, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, as well as other inorganic chemical products. However, the winery continues with the purchase and adaptation of new fully owned vineyards.

The winery resembles a château because of its location among the vineyard, but it also shows a certain French influence, such as its ageing warehouse, which is divided into two rooms. In one of them, the most generic wines of the house, such as Roble and Crianza, are aged, and in another one we can find top-range wines, such as Pago Santa Cruz or Viña Sastre Regina Vides. For the ageing of their wines, the winery has 800 French and American oak barrels, and their annual production is of around 250,000 bottles.

Wines from Bodegas Hermanos Sastre

Bodegas Hermanos Sastre, better known as Viñas Sastre, currently produces 5 different wines, all of them red.

Viña Sastre Roble, which is obtained from the youngest Tempranillo vineyards of the farm, between the ages of 17 and 30 years, remains in new American oak barrels for an average of 10 months. On the nose it is very powerful and complex, with notes of wild fruits and red fruits, with a subtle mineral shade; balanced, with a smooth and fruit-laden attack, and easy and pleasant to drink.

Viña Sastre Crianza, produced with a selection of Tempranillo farms from 20 to 60 years old, in the surroundings of Roa. It is aged in new oak barrels for around 14 months. On the nose it is very complex, emphasising the black fruit, cocoa, the toasted notes of the wood and the spicy tones of cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper; powerful and soft at the same time, sweet, very fruity, with fine sweet and spicy toastings from the woods, and a long and complex finish.

Regina Vides, which is obtained from the vineyards of Regina, the mother of Isabel, with old Tempranillo vines at 815 metres of altitude, is aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, and it has a production that does not exceed 6,000 bottles per harvest. It is a wine with complex aromas, emphasising the ripe fruit aromas with toasted and mineral notes; powerful, tasty and very fruity, with mature body and tannins, with compote fruit, minty and menthol herbaceous notes.

Viña Sastre Pago de Santa Cruz Reserva, produced with old Tempranillo of 65 years from the farm that gives name, is aged for 18 months in new American oak barrels. On the nose the nuances of fruity and liquorice red fruit stand out, mineral notes and fresh balsamic notes on a toasted background, with nuances of cocoa, butter and tobacco; tasty and very well structured, with nuances of red fruit and leather, alongside noble oriental woods; with excellent tannins, soft and mature but with weight, that catapult a great wine with a long life ahead.

Viña Sastre Pago Santa Cruz Gran Reserva, produced with grapes of the Tempranillo variety from the same farm of Santa Cruz, but with ages between 60 and 100 years, and an ageing of no less than 20 months in French oak barrels.

Pesus is a wine whose first vintage was born from the 1999 harvest. It is the star wine of the Sastre family, and its name comes from the apocope of the two names Pedro and Jesus Mª. It is made only from exceptional vintages, with 80% Tinta del País, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and its production does not exceed 1,800 bottles per year.
Traditionally, the family is in charge of personally harvesting the farms of the vineyards Valdelayegua, Cañuelo, Carranguix and Bercial. This wine is aged for at least 22 months in new French oak barrels. It is very powerful and complex on the nose, with fruity aromas of prunes, coffee roastings and balsamic woods, with a mineral background that reminds us of flint, alongside cinnamon and pepper, and balsamic notes of aromatic herbs. In the mouth it is very elegant, very well structured, with powerful tannins, but very polished, almost sweet, which give it a gentle power, and a very long finish. It is a wine where nothing is missing and nothing is dispensable.
