 Product Description

Bodegas Protos was founded in 1927 as the first in the Ribera del Duero region. Protos translates as “the first” in Greek. Our success is based on our traditions combined with the best modern technology, from the 1.2 miles of corridors under Penafiel Castle - some dating from Middle Ages - to the new building designed by Sir Richard Rogers.

All grapes are handpicked and, since 2001, 50% of the harvest is collected in boxes and cases that are unloaded onto sorting tables to check each branch and ensure that only completely healthy, undamaged grapes reach the fermentation tank.The harvest is carried out mechanically and at night in order to ensure that the grapes arrive at the winery in optimal condition. Carbonic snow is also used in the vineyard to eliminate the oxygen present in the trailer, thus preventing the grape juice from oxidizing.
