Basic Info

A pioneer and Rueda’s foremost innovator, Antonio Sanz is responsible for many of the ‘firsts’ of the region. He founded his winery in 1976, seven years before the Rueda DO was even established. Antonio is a man of tremendous foresight and his innovations have, and will continue to have a dramatic impact on the entire DO. Widely used vineyard and winemaking practices, such as night harvesting, introduction of Sauvignon Blanc, the vinification of young wines in stainless steel (vs. oxidative, sherry style that is traditional) and even sparkling wine from Rueda are among the ‘firsts’ of Antonio’s career.
