A young winery with deep roots
Genuine wines by nature
The winery Bodegas Eresma puts the experience and tradition of four generations of winemakers at the service of a young venture with a purpose: sharing unique, exciting experiences on a journey through the senses, stimulated by sensations that only memorable wines can unlock.
Bodegas Eresma is a lively, authentic project, driven by enthusiasm. It has been running since 2006. But it is also the creation of a historic oenologist whose career has been witness to and part of contemporary Spanish oenology: Aníbal Asensio Paunero.
Born in 1955, this “Mudéjar” oenologist has been one of the architects of winegrowing in Castilla y León as we know it today. Trained at the Madrid Winemaking School, he belongs to a generation of specialists (once known as the “rocking oenologists”) that emerged to transform winegrowing and oenology in Spain.
His passion for wine comes from his family: his grandfather Marino Asensio Carrasco was one of the pioneering Spanish winemakers of the 1940s, in Cabezón de Pisuerga, like his father, Aníbal Asensio Alonso, in La Cistérniga (what was known as “Tinto Paunero”). Aníbal’s restless spirit prompted him to disseminate winegrowing culture and to train vintners as far away as Cuba.
Despite having worked for diverse wineries in almost every winegrowing region, for over 40 years Aníbal Asensio Paunero has been wholeheartedly devoted to the Rueda Designation of Origin, of which he was a founder member and to which Bodegas Eresma belongs, in the vicinity of the historic town of Olmedo within the province of Valladolid.
Despite its youth, Bodegas Eresma is one of the most widely recognised brands of the Rueda Designation of Origin. We work chiefly with the Verdejo grape, the one most characteristic of the district, but also with Sauvignon Blanc and Viura. Century-old vines, a manual harvest and prior sorting of grapes make Bodegas Eresma wines an exciting experience worthy of sharing.
We offer a fluvial experience through an Eresma of authentic wines:

Bodegas Eresma has 120 hectares of its own and also receives the output of a further 110 hectares in the area, all within the Rueda district. Most of these grapes are Verdejo, the area’s native variety, highly versatile and suitable both for fresh, light wines such as those aged in oak barrels and also for stronger ones. We also work with Sauvignon Blanc, of which we have eight hectares for winemaking.
Our vineyards are located in various localities within the district:
- Between Valdestillas and Serrada we have El Tomillar, Campo Viejo and Mira al Alba. These vineyards have a north-south orientation with vines growing in gravelly soil on gentle slopes at an altitude of 780 metres, sheltered from frost and strong winds by hillocks.
- In Valdestillas, La Cuesta del Cura, Carralafuente and El Cortijo
- In Villanueva, Las Yeguas
- In Rueda, Finca La Veleta
- In Pozaldez, Finca El Poleo and Finca El Zurrón
The gravelly soils of these vineyards, allied with the local climatic conditions, give Bodegas Eresma wines their unique essence and character.
