Madison Wine is proud to announce that we are the Official Distributor of Vega Sicilia in Hong Kong.
Vega Sicilia of Ribera del Duero, is a milestone of Spanish wine, and the name of the winery literally means ‘Sicilia’s fields’. Before its emergence in popularity since being purchased by the Alvarez family in 1982, nearly no one bet an eye lid to Spanish wine made from Tinto Fino grape, i.e. Tempranillo.
Ever since gaining the status of DO in 1982, Vega Sicilia is recognised as the winery who competes with Bordeaux first growths. Its prolonged aged UNICO and Valbuena 5° have always been their legendary wines, UNICO is made from Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, once aged at least 10 years in barrel but now the process is shortened to 4 or 5 years. Valbuena 5° is a younger version, made from Tempranillo and Merlot with shorter ageing. UNICO Reserva Especial is the blend of three vintages from UNICO making it the first non-vintage premium Spanish wine.
Vega Sicilia does not limit themselves to one winery only, they acquired nearby wineries including Alion in Ribera del Duero, Pintia in Toro and Macan in Rioja for their outstanding quality. Later they spread their wings to Hungary, its winery Oremus is the birthplace of beautiful dry white and other mesmerising sweets.
