The story of VIVALTUS is the story of a passion of 3 men, Ramón Martínez, Jesús Yllera and José Yllera, three men with a long family wine tradition who came together in the 80s to share a challenge, with the spirit of doing something different and better in the Rueda region.
Currently, it is the brothers Marcos and Carlos Yllera who lead the winery team with Ramón's children: Beatriz, César and Montxo Martínez, the latter also a winemaker. In them is born the desire to make a unique, different, exciting, timeless wine: a myth.
In the 2010s they began this work of seeking excellence in Ribera de Duero, as it is one of the appellations with the greatest potential in Spain. They share this project with a remarkable teacher: Jean-Claude Berrouet, long-time winemaker of Pétrus in Pomerol, considered by many to be the best winemaker in the world.
VIVALTUS is the expression of the search for perfection at every stage. With dedication, passion and care.
The name “VIVALTUS” is an acronym for “life” and “height”. It reflects the particular location of the cellar and the exaltation of life and hedonism through wine.
Our wine speaks of the land where it was born. Authenticity reigns there: the aromas of the fruit and the nuances of the terroir from which it comes. It’s a nod to the French style of Ribera del Duero.
