Robert Parker: The result is exceptional
Although it was marketed as the second brand of the famous Vega Sicilia. To meet the demands that the winery could not satisfy, in a few years Alión has surpassed that role to become an important wine with its own entity. Alión was a procursor in Ribera del Duero in the use of new French barrels. The 2015 vintage introduces 20% of very old French oak barrels into winemaking. The result is exceptional

130 hectares of land, unbeatably located on the banks of the Duero River, produce a modern, independent 100% Tinto Fino. These plots, which complement each other, united by the same viticulture as Vega Sicilia, have given rise to firm structured wines.

Alión, of outstanding personality, is aged in new French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months and later bottled until it is ready for drinking. It is, without a doubt, the most universal wine of the family.

Alión is intense, complex, full-bodied, where elegance plays a differentiating role being the winery´s sign of identity. Its modern, genuine and multicultural character makes it easy to pair.

Alión 2014 is specially ample, voluptuous, appealing and tremendously velvety.

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.

The pride of a job well done 


And Vega Sicilia became great. Its name spread through the world and its philosophy reached other lands, as it progressed without taking shortcuts and avoiding fleeting fashions.

TEMPOS Vega Sicilia was set up in 1982 by the Álvarez family, its current owner, when it purchased the legendary winery of the Ribera del Duero. The other companies would be added down through the years.


The Álvarez family's business project is based on two fundamental cornerstones: consistency of the quality of the product as a guarantee for the different vintages, and dedication to the client as a benchmark in its routine activity.

Both cornerstones have underpinned the development of the group and have enabled very solid growth both in terms of the production structure and of the distribution and positioning of the different wines. The group currently consists of 5 companies (Bodegas Vega Sicilia S.A, Bodegas y Viñedos Alión S.A., Bodegas y Viñedos Pintia S.A., Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia S.A. and Tokaj-Oremus Kft.), the first four in Spain and the fifth in Hungary.


The development strategy has followed a growth model based on the setting up of new wineries in production areas with sufficient differentiating and qualitative potential. The figure of approximately 300,000 l/winery has been deemed the ideal balance between product quality and volume; even though there are cases such as Vega Sicilia, where three different wines are produced, and others such as Alión or Pintia, where only one wine per winery is produced. Increasing the volume produced in each winery individually has thus been avoided.

Commercially speaking, the wines are sold in a total of 88 countries and to around 4,500 private and professional clients worldwide. The possibility of buying directly from the group is subject, first, to being approved as a client, after applying in writing; and, second, to the allocation of a customized quota that varies according to the characteristics of each vintage.


From the positioning perspective, the group enjoys a magnificent public image among its clients and in the rest of the market alike. This image is endorsed both by the international awards that it receives annually and for the numerous appearances in the media around the world. But particularly for the huge acceptance that its wines have in the different markets in which they are present.
