Sardón de Duero, a town near Valladolid, is the home of this avant-garde Winery that is built on an estate called Santa María de Retuerta, which has a historical tradition of viniculture. It is situated in “El Pago” on the Golden Mile, a privileged geographical location between Tudela de Duero and Peñafiel, where the most prestigious brands of Spanish wine, such as Vega Sicilia, Pingus, Alion, Mauro or H. Monasterio are found.

The Winery’s name “Abadía Retuerta” is the result of two words that define and describe the territory: Rivola Torta (riverside /winding river bank), a Latin name that developed over time into Retuerta and that gave its name to the XII Century Abbey located on the estate, which has an incalculable historical value.
