In this edition of the Penin Guide wines of Hispanobodegas confirmed a new climbing after three years having obtained outstanding scores. This year the wine group has not submitted 3 of its top wines (Anier VS, VS AlfarAlfarReserva, which last year were rated with 94-92 and 91 points respectively) because this year has not been fulfilled the premise for the making of these wines: “There are only produced in extraordinary good vintages.”
Therefore, if we leave out this, the scores of Hispanobodegas wines have meant a new record, surpassing the excellent results of the previous edition, with three wines added to the “club of 90” in this edition.

(first time that this wine reaches this score, being positioned in first line in the context of the “Roble wines”(aged for less than 12 months) from D.O. Ribera del Duero.
Besides highlighting individual scores, we want to give proof of the consistency and uniformity in valuations between wines of the three wineries where the group produces (D.O,ca Rioja, D.O.Ribera del Duero and D.O. Rueda), what reaffirms the group’s philosophy preserving the unique personality of each winery and its terroir, but implementing uniform values and methodology based on the group´s “innovation push” and a solid teamwork approach.
“We continue our path undertaken with determination and consistency. We are happy but not relaxed. We still have much room to improve and that´s what we’re going to keep on making.” They say in the Group…
THE PEÑIN GUIDE
THE PEÑÍN GUIDE IS THE MAXIMUM POINT OF REFERENCE FOR THE SPANISH WINE INDUSTRY. It began its journey in 1990 with its first guide in which 3,000 wines were tasted. 25 years later, the guide reflects the ratings and reviews of over 11,000 Spanish wines of the 69 Protected Designation of Origin and other wines (“Vinos de la Tierra”, and even some renowned “table wines”). With all its experience of 25 years and the number of wines tasted (spending 180 days a year to this work), the Peñín Guide is undoubtedly the most complete existing guide for Spanish wines in the world and the best chronicle available about Spanish wine in the last quarter century.
Taking into account that Spain alternates among the top three wine producing countries – far from fourth in the ranking (USA)-, it is logical to assert that this guide must be taken into account as a world reference not only by Spanish users, but anyone in the world who be interested in knowing the reality of Spanish wines.
