"The winery has always looked towards the territory and the family has been a firm defender of tradition, which is clearly appreciated in our wines", he explains Carmen San Martin Gutierrez, general manager of Bodegas De Alberto.
'At the beginning of the 40s, our great-grandfather Alberto and his three sons Dalmacio, José and Alberto, continued the tradition of making historic golden wine in the old underground cellars of the Dominican monastery', indicates Carmen. 'A wine that if it had not been preserved for decades, would have disappeared'.
