Bodegas Vina Mayor is owned by the HA Group Barcelo, a centennial company whose experience dates back to 1876. Bodegas Vina Mayor started in 1986 with the aim of developing a limited production of red wines of high quality raised, covered by a prestigious brand and a highly differentiated product. The winery is surrounded by vineyards and fully integrated into the landscape, dominating from the top of the hill the winding turns of the Douro River as it passes through Onesimus Quintanilla. Its privileged location on the road from Valladolid to Aranda de Duero, is part of the so-called "Golden Mile" of the Ribera del Duero.
The modern building that houses craft making and aging, merges with the tradition of underground cellars. This space, hidden underground, covers an area much larger than the buildings on the surface due to a near obsession with the ideal temperature for raising that seeks to maintain the temperature between 15 and 16 degrees.
With ten acres of vineyard on the estate, Bodegas Vina Mayor is committed to working with the best growers in the area through long-term contracts, which control the quality of the grapes from the vineyard and ensure optimum health and maturity of the fruit.
Secreto is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes. Temperature controlled fermentation on the skins of destemmed grapes. This wine is aged 10 months in 225 French oak barrels, and 6 months in the bottle.
