Ribera del Duero, Spain
Milénico is an artisanal, organic and family-run winery of the Spanish DO Ribera del Duero. All vines are farmed using sustainable organic practices, and winemaking is based on non-interventionism. Milénico cultivates now more than 20 hectares of vineyards distributed in more than 15 plots located within a radius of 15 kms, between San Martin de Rubiales, Roa de Duero and Fuentemolinos . The vineyards are between 20 and 100 years old mostly from different clones of the Tempranillo variety, in our area known as Tinto Fino but also from vines of old Garnacha, Albillo, and other typical grapes appearing mixed in old vineyards. Previous generations of our family implanted in the Ribera del Duero have cultivated the vineyard and have produced and sold wine and wine spirits before and after the arrival of phylloxera in our area at the beginning of the 20th century. The last two generations expanded the area of vineyards and in 2012, two brothers of the family decided to make the leap to the elaboration of wines for commercialization always starting from our own grapes and under organic farming practices.
