The Bodegas Santiago Arroyo, also from the Ribera del Duero. In the 1960s, a group of smaller winemakers came together in Sotillo de la Ribera (Burgos) to found the winery. Santiago Arroyo finally acquired it in 1994 and immediately began running the winery to the highest quality standards that we are proud of today. By modernizing the facilities and building a huge barrique wine cellar, the bodega can offer top-quality wines that have already been honored with numerous international awards. For example the following wine, in our opinion one of the great Spaniards, of which even the French should be jealous.
