History

How it all began

In 1949, Mr. Manuel Luengo, born in Sanzoles del Vino (today D.O. TORO – Zamora), with several generations of winemakers in his family, settled in Granadilla de Abona where he worked as a Land Registrar for 40 years.
From his early years in the Abona region he acquired land, planted vineyards and began to make wine in the 1950s in a primitive bodega.
His ten children have continued the family tradition with a modern winemaking project, managed directly by the family. Fernando runs the day-to-day management of the winery with the direct support of Carlos. And they have the managerial and technical support of Hugo and Manuel.

The book is only in Spanish, sorry for the inconvenience.
