Bodegas Protos is Ribera del Duero’s pioneer winery. ‘Protos’, is from the Greek word for “first”. Protos’ history goes back to 1927, when the area’s growers combined their efforts to establish a winery. The 1960s were a crucial period in the establishment of the Protos wines: the market expanded and the company began work on a new aging cellar in the heart of the hill that supports the castle, with a capacity for 3,500 oak barrels along galleries dug 9/10th of a mile into the earth, in a labyrinth that guards the secret of the wine’s success.

A natural leader both in terms of production and quality, Protos earned marks In the 1980’s, when the winemaking region adopted the “surname” ‘Ribera del Duero’ to identify the Designation of Origin with a Regulating Council entrusted to oversee the quality of the region’s wine.Bodegas Protos
