“Valles de Benavente” is a grape-producing region with a longstanding tradition and many differentiating features. It is located in the northeast of the Zamora province and encompasses three different valleys (Valverde, Tera and Vidriales), which explains why it is called “The Benavente Valleys”. The Association works ceaselessly to make our wines known in Zamora, Castilla y León and, of course, the rest of the world, always bearing the exclusive local variety Prieto Picudo as its banner.


Extreme, arid continental climate, low rainfall, high luminosity and extreme temperatures (-15ºC to +40ºC). The geographical area covered by the Association (1,520 km2) belongs to 62 municipalities and consists of brown limestone soils with a sandy loam texture, pH 7-8.
