Alvarez de Toledo
In order to understand this winery, as well as the great family tradition in viticulture, one must remember Don Luis Varela Alvarez de Toledo, who maintained a close relationship with the vineyards and the wine. Thanks to him, Alvarez de Toledo is able to present their wines, sourced from the most intimate interpretation of the Bierzo region. His mother, Sara Alvarez de Toledo, was born in Villafranca del Bierzo and her sister Amancia was a nun in the closed order convent of The Anunciada. They represented the last generations linked to the vineyards. His daughter, Angelines Varela Mazon y Alvarez de Toledo, is responsible for the project of recuperating the family vineyards, several of which are over 100 years old.
