Maestro Tejero


Alfredo Maestro

REGION: Castilla y Leon
APPELLATION: Ribera del Duero

Alfredo Maestro Tejero is celebrated as being "A Magician in the Duero" for elevating the integrity of his appellation while eschewing its label. A native of Peñafiel, in the heart of Ribera del Duero, Alfredo Maestro Tejero started planting vines, buying grapes, and making wine in 1998. He began making wine by following the rules of modern oenology. 

However, he soon learned that if he wanted to create wines that were truly expressive and original, the best way was by using natural practices - biodynamics "sin fanatismo," and minimal intervention both in the vineyards and also for the work in the cellar. 

This means that there are no synthetic chemicals or sulfur added to the wine during the maturation process - the only exception is the addition of sulfur at the time of bottling for wines that are exported. He chooses freedom over branding, working under the broader Castilla y León appellation which makes it possible to pursue winemaking possibilities that are outside the appellation limits of Ribera D.O.

Wine Region:

Castilla y Leon

Castilla y León consists of the following provinces: Ávila, Burgos, León, Valladolid, Salamanca, Segovia, Soria, and Valladolid. Around the province are Asturias, Basque Country, and Cantabria to the north; Galicia to the norhtwest, Aragon and La Rioja to the east, Castile-La Mancha, Extremadura, and Madrid to the south. 

Castilla y León is mostly a landlocked area; a plateau with mountains on all sides, except for where it meets Portugal. Naturally fertile soils grace the region’s central plateau, although irrigation is necessary in many areas due to little rainfall.  

The wines made here fall under Vino de la Tierra, a step below the Denominación de Origen - a subset in the quality control system used for wine and foodstuffs such as honey, meats, cheeses, and condiments in the country.
