About the winery

Designed by famous French enologist, Pascal Delbeck, in 1996, Abadía Retuerta winery is an elegant combination of tradition and modernity, recognized as one of the most advanced wineries in Europe. It covers an area of 10,000 m2 with limited wine production, as quality is preferred to quantity.

The use of gravity in all of the wine’s movements is noteworthy, as a system of flying repositories composed of cranes keeps the wine from being disturbed by pumps. The temperature of the barrel room is naturally controlled, without expending energy, thanks to its location on the mountainside. Our wines rest in an astounding park of 4,000 stacked barrels, with a patented wine extraction system, maintaining a traditional non-pumping system.

The evolution of the different estates, their microorganisms, aromas, colors and other parameters are studied in all of the elaboration processes. The tasting of the wine, the indispensable work of the ABADIA RETUERTA’s oenologists, is supported by a complete laboratory that performs everything from classical analysis to microbiological and chromatographic studies.

Arnaud Steve  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Portugal
**** Very good 
Un bon vin du sud
Plein de fruits rouges, une petite touche de fût de chêne, plutôt plein et puissant mais sans être agressif ou alcooleux, long en bouche. Un bon vin pour accompagner un steak au poivre!

Professionals’ opinions
Vinexus - Infinity of Wine Duitsland    Vinexus - Infinity of Wine Duitsland
The Abadía Retuerta Selección Especial wine comes from a careful selection of the best grapes of all the plots on our estate. Tempranillo’s richness, Merlot’s roundness and Cabernet Sauvignon’s aromatic elegance make it an internationally renowned Great Wine. This is the wine that best reflects the uniqueness of our terroir and the spirituality of our 12th century Abbey. Aging for eighteen months means that a glass of such a select wine fills our spirits with magic, delicious, evocative dreams.
