Behind The Vine
Pedro Peciña Crespo and his three children founded Bodegas Hermanos Peciña S.L. in 1992. At the time, it was a small winery in the center of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, where they only produced “cosechero” wine. In 1997, they opened the current facilities, where they began the production of white wines and aged red wines: Crianzas, Reservas and Gran Reservas.
The winery now owns 50 hectares of vineyards, and their facilities have the production capacity for 1 million kilos of grapes — over 2.2 million pounds. 4,500 American oak barrels sit in their three perfectly-conditioned underground warehouses and 500,000 bottles rest in their aging warehouses.
Bodegas Hermanos Peciña is located in Sonsierra Riojana. This region is famous for its exceptional vine growing conditions. It is set among the peaks of the Sierra Cantabria and the banks of the Ebro River. Here, the Atlantic and Mediterranean climates coexist, which creates a microclimate that produces unique and unbeatable grapes.

Molly's Staff Thoughts - Scott's Pick
“This 2014 Rioja Crianza is drinking great right now. Present, but soft, oak tannins set the stage for subtle, ripe cherry-driven fruit. If you are a student of wine, this is a classic example of a “Traditional” style coming from a classic region. If you just like to drink exceptionally well-made wine at a reasonable price, don’t miss this opportunity!”
