A HISTORY OF HOPE
A way of understanding life
When Vega Sicilia became part of the Álvarez family's life in 1982, the foundations were laid for TEMPOS Vega Sicilia. It has constantly and steadily grown since then, involving the introduction of wines produced in different wine-making areas, reaching out to new consumers around the world and laying the foundations for a promising and highly successful future.
In April 1982, the Álvarez family purchased Vega Sicilia from its previous owner, Hans Neuman, a Venezuelan businessman. Wine thus became the cornerstone of the family's new business project.
The Álvarez family created Alión. A modern and up-to-date wine, quite unlike the classicism of Vega Sicilia. Coming under the same denomination of origin, just 15 km from the earlier brands, it marked a turning point in wine production in Ribera del Duero.
Tokaj-Oremus was founded just three years after the fall of communism in Hungary. Respect for the history and tradition of one of the greatest wines in the world is here combined with the modernisation and technological updating introduced by the Álvarez family.
Pintia was created in the Toro region further down the Duero River. The Álvarez family's latest project on the banks of the Duero River has enabled the family to broaden the horizon of its wine-making project.
Twelve years down the line, Macán was the brainchild of Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia. The union of two leading names of the world of wine is based in the La Rioja denomination of origin and augers a future full of great wines.
