About us
Bodegas Epifanio Rivera integrates the traditional methods together with the latest technological advances. The modern winery is located in Pesquera de Duero, with a capacity for 100,000 bottles every year. The picking of the grapes is done by hand and the grapes are collected in boxes of 20 kilograms to ensure a careful selection.

Fermentation and soaking is produced by following a strict control of the temperature in the fermentation tanks. These tanks are shallow and very wide in order to extract the best tannin. The chambers where barrels and bottles are placed for ageing are thermally controlled, so as to accurately reproduce the conditions in the old underground wine cellars. The whole process is meant to achieve the highest expression in our wines.

Thus, every wine, every year is made in slightly differing ways to better suit the specific characteristics of the harvested grapes. The ageing of the wine in the barrels is analyzed through taste testing and adapted to each vintage.
