The tasting room at the Bodega Emina Ribera, located in Valbuena de Duero, hosted the first Young People for Wine workshop. This event aims to promote the dissemination of wine culture among young people.

The Provincial Council of Valladolid and Matarromera support this initiative as they consider it essential for the growth of the sector in Spain.  Over fifty 18 to 35 year olds attended the workshop. The event included a debate to formulate ideas for the promotion and development of wine culture within this sector of the population. The young people could enjoy different wines produced by Bodegas Familiares Matarromera, specially the company’s most modern line, situated in bars in the winery’s cloister.



Bodega Emina Rueda has hosted a tasting of their 2015 Emina Verdejo barrel fermented wine, which was awarded the runner-up prizeat the 2017V Concurso Vino de Museo[‘Fifth Wine Museum Competition’], in which Peñafiel Wine Museum had the privilege of selecting the competitors that were to become the Best White Wine in this edition.


Carlos Moro, the founder and president of Bodegas Emina, Alberto Gómez, Emina Rueda oenologist, Victor Fernández, Director of Valladolid Wine Museum, Miguel Ángel Benito, Director of the 2017 Wine Museum Competition, as well as Teresa López and Raquel Alonso, mayoress and councillor of the Medina del Campo Council, were all present at this event.


This is not the only Bodega Emina Rueda white to have been awarded a prize this year. The 2016 Emina Verdejo wine was awarded the 2017 Sarmiento Prize as the best 2016 Rueda Denomination of Origin Verdejo wine, a prize which was granted by the Council of La Seca and which constitutes yet another example of the high quality of white wines created by the Emina wine brandusing Verdejo grapes.


In the 2017 Wine Museum Competition, held on 3 April at Castillo de Peñafiel Wine Museum, 207 wines from different Denominations of Origin in Castilla y León were presented and were tasted by 35 sommeliers from all over Spain. Other notable wines included the 2013 limited edition Castillo de Peñafiel, from Bodegas Thesaurus (Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin), and the 2016 Salvueros, from Bodegas Hijos de Marcos Gómez (CigalesDenomination of Origin), which was awarded the other runner-up prize.


The 2015 Emina Verdejo barrel fermented winewas chosen as the best white wine from among 49competitors from across the region and 500 bottles of this reference wine will be acquired by Peñafiel Wine Museum. Alberto Gómez, oenologist at the cellar, stated that this wine possesses characteristics which distinguish it from the other white wines currently on the market, due to the richness lent to it by its seven months spent in new French oak barrels and the fact that its grapes are from exceptional vineyards. This is a wine that, according to Carlos Moro, “reflects a new trend in Rueda Denomination of Originwhite wines of high quality and distinction”.



The Emina wine brand has added a new distinction to its list of national and international prizes with the Gold Medal recently won by its Emina 2012 Reserva at the 2017 CINVE Awards, aninternational wine and spirits competition. More than 650 samples of wine and oil were presented in this thirteenth edition which was held in Huelva.


Emina 2012 Reserva also holds a Gold Medal from the 2016 Berliner Wine Trophy and scored 90 points in Wine Enthusiast magazine.


This wine is made only from exceptional vintages and has a limited production, with 10,500 bottles being made in 2012. It is a 100% Tempranillo wine which, following a double selection of grapes(in the vineyards and in the cellar) is aged for 16 months in French oak barrels.



Emina Reserva originates from vineyards close to the Santa María de Valbuena monastery, the birthplace of the Ribera del Duero river and the placewhere Cistercian monks reintroduced the cultivation of the vine in the Middle Ages. The wine possesses a dense bright cherry colour and the nose is open, intense and pleasant with aromas of red and black fruit, spices, leather and liquorice. It is a very elegant yet subtle wine with sweet tannins; round, full-bodied, complex and well-balanced.
