The Alvarez de Toledo family goes back many centuries, the first notable moment being in 1472 when the Count Don Garcia Alvarez de Toledo was granted the title of Duke of Alba by Henry IV of Castile.
Three decades later, in 1514, his grandson Pedro Alvarez de Toledo y Zuñiga, who later became Viceroy of Naples, married in the town of Ponferrada Doña Maria Pimentel-Osorio, daughter of the Marquis of Villafranca del Bierzo, thus linking the Alvarez de Toledo family to the region of El Bierzo to this day.
The vineyards of Alvarez de Toledo are located in the "Gold Mile" of El Bierzo's wine country. Exceptionally orientated terrains with the best soils of the entire region. The area surrounds the towns of Villafranca del Bierzo and Valtuille de Arriba, the most traditional production areas of the Mencia grape variety for red wines with an altitude range of 420 to 500 meters above sea level.
