    About VivaltuS

    The Yllera family has been linked to viticulture and high-quality winemaking in the terroirs by the Duero river valley in Castilla y León, for many decades. In the 70s, brothers Jesús and Pepe Yllera decided to move forward and started bottling and selling the white wines that their family had been making and selling in bulk for generations.

    In the present, the company is still family based and run by brothers Marcos and Carlos Yllera (sons of Jesús, nephews of Pepe) and Beatriz and Montxo Martinez (daughter and son of Ramón) alongside an excellent team of professionals in each department of the company.

    In 2015 the family acquired the VivaltuS estate, a spectacular wine facility located between the castles of Peñafiel and Curiel de Duero in the edge of three different valleys (Duero valley, Cuco valley and Esgueva valley), an impressive building designed to create an iconic wine.

    The wine is produced from some of the highest vineyards (1000m above sea level) and oldest vines (80-100+ years) owned by Ribera de Duero’s distinguished Yllera family and made by Jean-Claude Berrouet, winemaker at Château Pétrus for 40 years. Only 14,000 bottles are produced annually.

    Vivaltus 2016 (6x75cl)

    Tim Atkin MW (97)

    What a début! Even given the distinguished track record of consultant Jean-Claude Berrouet, this is a remarkable wine. Elegant and refreshing, it has very fine tannins, floral top notes, subtle oak and just a hint of leafiness from 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Vivaltus 2017 (6x75cl)

    Tim Atkin MW (97)

    How do you follow up a first release as stunning as the 2016? Simple: make a wine that's every bit as good, albeit from a very different vintage. This multi-zone blend of Tempranillo and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon uses high altitude vineyards in Fuentenebro as its core, which gives it remarkable freshness and lift. The tannins are silky, the oak svelte and aromatic, the fruit sweet and layered, the finish long and engaging. Rapidly confirming itself as one of Spain's best reds.
