Our products

Product category: Toscana

Alión

Wine produced using the Tinto Fino variety. The grapes are harvest by hand in 12-kg boxes and are taken immediately to the winery to the sorting tables. Fermentation takes place in wooden tanks under controlled temperatures until a good polyphenolic structure is obtained which will provide the generous colour and firm structure that makes up part of the personality of this wine; and finally the ageing of between 14 and 20 months, depending on the characteristics of the vintage, is performed in full in new French oak Bordeaux barrels. These barrels, from the leading Bordeaux firms (Radoux, Taranssaud, Saury and Vicard), are a significant investment in oak as, harvest after harvest, all the wine that is produced in Alión will be aged in new barrels that, after the wine is decanted to be bottle, will not be used again by the winery.
Once the wine is removed from the barrels, it will remain no less than 15 months in the stillness of the bottle, where it will end up assembling all the primary aromas of the fruit with the hues from its delicate ageing, resulting in an intense, complex and fleshy wine, but where the elegance is a distinguishing feature and hallmark of the winery.

Oremus Mandolás

This wine's name comes from the old way of referring to the vineyard from where it comes. Mandolás is one of the Oremus vineyards and it is only planted with Furmint, the noblest variety of the region.  

During the weeks leading up to the harvest, the state of ripening of the grape is systematically checked and the golden yellow, health and ripe bunches are picked.

A must with great density is obtained using a delicate and gentle pressing. Fermentation is in new wood barrels, which are carefully prepared, and takes between 8 and 12 days.

The wine is aged in 136-litre small barrels, which are typical of the region.

Oremus Eszencia

Only in excellent years, when the harvest of noble berries is particularly abundant, the natural essence that the noble grapes ooze is collected drop by drop and it is then turned into Oremus Eszencia, a wine of legend and mystic secrets.  

Oremus Nectar, born in the Oremus vineyard, stands out among all the Aszú wines. It is an incredibly rich drink, which has no equal anywhere in the world. It has a low alcohol (1 to 3%), as the amount of sugar concentrated in it does not manage to ferment, so that it is not unusual to find 500 or more grams of residual sugar per litre.

The Aszú berries are collected one by one. And we should not forget that each grape picker picks between 5 and 10 kg of grapes per day. The berries are left to rest for 15 to 20 days in the Oremus winemaking facility, and they gradually increase in amount until the end of the wine harvest. During those days, the slight pressure from the weight of the berries causes the must in them to be extracted. 

At the end of that time, the must is put in 50-litre glass containers where it undergoes an extremely slow fermentation. At the end of 2 years, it is decanted into 68-litres barrels known as "átalag", where it will continue to age. It is finally aged in the bottle in a process that can last for several decades.

About us

Company details

TEMPOS Vega Sicilia was set up in 1982 by the Álvarez family, its current owner, when it purchased the legendary winery of the Ribera del Duero. The other companies would be added down through the years.

The Álvarez family's business project is based on two fundamental cornerstones: consistency of the quality of the product as a guarantee for the different vintages, and dedication to the client as a benchmark in its routine activity.
Both cornerstones have underpinned the development of the group and have enabled very solid growth both in terms of the production structure and of the distribution and positioning of the different wines. The group currently consists of 5 companies (Bodegas Vega Sicilia S.A, Bodegas y Viñedos Alión S.A., Bodegas y Viñedos Pintia S.A., Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia S.A. and Tokaj-Oremus Kft.), the first four in Spain and the fifth in Hungary.

The development strategy has followed a growth model based on the setting up of new wineries in production areas with sufficient differentiating and qualitative potential. The figure of approximately 300,000 l/winery has been deemed the ideal balance between product quality and volume; even though there are cases such as Vega Sicilia, where three different wines are produced, and others such as Alión or Pintia, where only one wine per winery is produced. Increasing the volume produced in each winery individually has thus been avoided.
Commercially speaking, the wines are sold in a total of 110 countries and to around 4,500 private and professional clients worldwide. The possibility of buying directly from the group is subject, first, to being approved as a client, after applying in writing; and, second, to the allocation of a customized quota that varies according to the characteristics of each vintage.

From the positioning perspective, the group enjoys a magnificent public image among its clients and in the rest of the market alike. This image is endorsed both by the international awards that it receives annually and for the numerous appearances in the media around the world. But particularly for the huge acceptance that its wines have in the different markets in which they are present.
