Legaris is a winery located in the Cuco Valley, between Curiel and Bocos, in the heart of Ribera del Duero. Just 6 kilometers from the municipality of Peñafiel and very close to the Duero River. There in 1999, the Codorníu Group ventured to build this peculiar winery seeking the excellence of its wines.

The construction and planting of the vine began at the end of the last century. The Tinto Fino or Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon are cultivated in different plots totaling almost 100 hectares. In them, the winery growers work throughout the year to keep the plants in optimal conditions. Some plants already have more than 20 years of age and their grapes are considered of high quality, so it is very necessary to take care of them.
The type of viticulture used is sustainable by applying certain techniques that improve the performance of the plant without harming the environment. Some are the vegetal covers, the systems of conduction, anti-frost, automated irrigation … The objective is that in the grape harvest the grape has an excellent quality. This is usually carried out in the month of October according to the ripening conditions of the grapes. Thus, especially in the last weeks before the harvest, controls are carried out to verify the state of the grapes and decide when to harvest.
The winery has very minimalist architectural features. A very bright and simple building that allows you to perfectly contemplate the vineyards from the inside. This design was made by the architect Domingo Triay with the aim of promoting the culture of wine inside and outside the winery. On the ground floor is the fermentation, aging, bottling and other rooms where wine is made.
