For all those everyday occasions, having dinner with friends, enjoying a glass when you get home and the world stops, the wonderful feeling of savouring a refreshing Verdejo while enjoying those rays of sunshine on a terrace, a delicious rosé to celebrate that meal with girlfriends without worrying about the time.
It is these little pleasures of life that have inspired us to create a range of unique, modern, casual wines, with the best Tempranillo and Verdejo grapes from our vineyards in Ribera del Duero and Rueda. Unique wines from a legendary winery.
The history of Protos dates back to 1927 when 11 vine growers established the “RIBERA DE DUERO” winery, with a progressive vision to prepare quality wines with a commitment to brand value. Ninety years later, this spirit not only lives on, but also flourishes year upon year. At Protos, we have always taken pride in our roots, using only our native variety, the Tempranillo, and in 1982 allowing our brand “RIBERA DE DUERO” to be used for the recently established Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin. At Protos, currently the leading winery in Ribera del Duero with clients in around 100 countries, we continue our international growth with the help of a solid distributor network and in-house staff in the main international markets including the USA, UK, Germany and Asia.
