In 1994, Santiago López realized his dream of creating his own winery. The dream started many years before in the 1930 with Santiagos father Santiago Sr., arriving in the Ribera del Duero area from Santander to start a successful farm, where the winery is now founded.
In the 1980s Santiago Jr.s initial contact with viticulture coincided with the appellation designation of Ribera del Duero. After several years of selling his grapes to other wineries, his longing to make his own wine was realized, thus creating López Cristóbal. The name López Cristóbal is a union of two last names, his wife Lola Cristóbal and Santiago López.
The family tradition continues with Galo, Santiagos son that joined the winemaking team to contribute a personal flare to the wines.
This unparalleled site surrounded by vineyards is the location of our family winery. The layout of the facilities results in a special charming and beautiful setting.
The winery is located in Roa, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. It is equipped with the state of the art technology assuring a honed process and a thorough attention to wine making.
