Hermanos Sastre is a family-run winery located in the heart of the D.O. in the town of La Horra. Boasting some of the oldest vineyards in the Ribera del Duero region, Sastre has never been represented in the United States due to limited production.
Pedro Sastre is the winemaker in charge of overseeing all operations of the winery. The winery produces a range of wines -- from a "Tinto", with 7 months barrel age to Gran Reservas, all from Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) grape. They also own a unique vineyard site called Pago Santa Cruz. Pago Santa Cruz has vineyards over sixty years old planted by Pedro's grandfather. In exceptional vintages, Pago Santa Cruz appears under its own label.
Pedro's skills are evident when one spends time with him in his cellar. He is a master with oak. The fruit from his vineyards seem to be able to absorb all the oak aging Pedro submits them to. The Pago Santa Cruz Gran Reserva 1994 and 1995 were aged 24 months in new American Oak and finished off in new French Oak for an additional 12 months. All his wines are bottled unfiltered. These two wines will be released in 2000 and 2001 respectively. In addition to these wines, Regina Vedes, a 4-hectare parcel of 80-year-old vines, was vinified in 1998 and will be released under its own label in 2001.
