You will like to know that…
Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5th Year 2013 is a great example of the high quality of Ribera del Duero wines that is achieved with the help of Bodegas Vega Sicilia. This is the winery's youngest wine, and it embodies the modern and accessible style of some of the winery's older wines; Vega Sicilia Único and Vega Sicilia Único Reserva Especial.
It is aged in wood for 3 years and in the bottle for 2, hence its name. This process is somewhat shorter than it is for other wines, and the grapes used for its production come from younger vineyards. The result is, as in each vintage, a spectacular wine, that is expressive, elegant, and powerful, and allows us to get to know a mythical winery in Spain. This wine is not meant for just any occasion, and must only be uncorked on the most special of occasions.

How to serve
Vega Sicilia winery is probably the most recognized Spanish wine-growing estate on international level. It was founded by Eloy Lecanda in 1864. During its nearly 150 years of history, the owners of the winery changed but the wines always have kept their personality: concentrated, genres and very elegant. Vega Sicilia currently belongs to Alvarez Mezquíriz who bought it in 1982, looking to be at the forefront regarding the latest innovations in the process of growing, winemaking and expanding the vineyard area.More about the Winery
