Bodegas de los Rios Prieto - Prios Maximus Wines
Today Ribera del Duero and we visit Bodegas de los Rios Prieto.
We have stocked red wine from this vineyard for four years and we have lovely memories of our previous trips here.
The vineyard is family run and we have met the whole family over the years, today Dani was waiting to meet us, how the Bodegas has changed since our last visit. Most probably it has doubled in size, tanks have been moved to the new area and state of the art equipment has been installed. There are new offices and a beautiful tasting room. The complex is near completion but work has had to stop now for a time, whilst this year’s grapes are harvested.
The feeling here is that the 2016 harvest is going to be a good one, as the weather has been warm with a little rain so the vines have not been stressed and have ripened well and should be ready for hand picking in the next couple of weeks.
This year we have added Prios Maximus Reserva to our range and restocked the old favourite Roble and Crianza.
