PradoRey is History - Making history since 1503

PradoRey’s history dates back to 1503 when the Earl of Ribadeo sold the Real Sitio de Ventosilla estate to Queen Isabella I of Castile, belonging to the Crown of Castile until 1521 when King Charles I bestowed the estate to the 2nd Marquis of Denia.

In 1600 his descendant the Duke of Lerma initiated its exploitation as an agricultural and livestock farm and also built the Palace.
The farm remained in royal hands until the 19th century when it became the property of the Duke of Caldas who sublet the farm until 1921 when the Velasco family acquired it and turned it into a model farm.

It is currently owned by the Cremades family.

Our Beginnings - Javier Cremades’ passion for quality wines

Agronomist Javier Cremades, owner of the Real Sitio de Ventosilla estate, had always dreamt of having his own vineyards so he could produce his own wines.

He saw his dream come true by planting 520 hectares of vines in seven different terroir sites with up to 8 clones of Tempranillo grape, recovering vines of more than 100 years old that give PradoRey wines their high quality.

Situated within the estate is Bodegas y Viñedos Real Sitio de Ventosilla winery building, where PradoRey’s Ribera de Duero D.O. wines are produced.

Recently built in Rueda is our other winery, PradoRey Rueda. Modern and innovative, its aim is to create a quality white wine faithful to Prado Rey’s philosophy.
