THE BEGINNING · 1998

Peñafiel Castle has witnessed the evolution of a winery created in 1998, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region, to produce unique, exclusive and exquisite wines.

The López de la Osa Escribano family, the first generation to run the winery, began this story of love for the land, tradition, work, passion and evolution.

THE RECOVERY · Tradition and innovation

Paloma Escribano, heir to a long-standing winemaking tradition and considered the first female wine-grower in the Ribera del Duero region, forged a reputation for high-quality wines. Her passion and knowledge of the land led to numerous awards and widespread recognition for her wines.

After several years managing the winery, she handed it over to the next generation. One of her sons, Íñigo López de la Osa, inherited this valuable wine-making legacy, which he has consolidated over the years.

BODEGAS VIRTUS· 2013 Present

Íñigo López de la Osa and his family took over the winery in 2013 to embark on a new project founded on enthusiasm, hard work and an overarching vision. Thus, Bodegas Virtus was born of a love for a land cultivated with care, with the goal of obtaining the best results from its fruit.

Years of effort and dedication and drawing on the most cutting-edge wine-making techniques have enabled the winery to consolidate its presence in the DO where it is based, Ribera del Duero, and to make a name for itself in the national and international markets.
