El Maestro Sierra combines traditional winemaking with artisan character. More than 180 years after its creation, the bodega is still family owned and stands in the same location, where almost two centuries ago, it first opened its doors. Many of the old features are still untouched, from the albero floors where the soleras stand quietly resting, to barrels that contain wines dating back as far as 1860. The labour of “trasiego”, the transition of the wine through the scales of the solera system, is still done by hand with great care and skill. This handmade ethos, the firm ideal of quality over quantity, and, the patience to allow each of their wines the necessary maturing time have made El Maestro Sierra wines into little works of art; wines of extreme age and complexity.
