The History

The essence of our origin

After decades working in the wine sector in different parts of the world, a dream brought together all the protagonists of this wine: finding old vineyards in Spain that were ideal for making a great red wine.

Building a winery capable of combining new, modern oenology techniques with the greatest respect for tradition.

Making a wine that is capable of becoming a work of art. Ephemeral after each bottle. Lasting in the history of wines in Spain.

The dream slowly came true in the conversations which, accompanied with a good glass of wine, the protagonists of this beautiful project shared with each other.

A good wine unites. Even friends on different sides of an ocean.

Finally, José Ramón Ruiz came across a small hill behind Padilla de Duero, in the heart of Ribera del Duero.

In the Golden Mile, home to the most emblematic wineries of Spain.

Dominated by a fantastic olive tree that is more than 1500 years old, the dream came true in the form of an avant-garde winery.

It combines technique, history and art to ensure that the efforts and hard work of all involved lead to excellence.

Tr3smano was born. Located in the district of Peñafiel, off the beaten track that joins Peñafiel with the neighbouring town of Quintanilla de Onésimo, near the famous Vaccei archaeological site of Pintia, a necropolis built between the fourth and first centuries BC and where there was an ancient winery in which, as early as the 18th century, the grapes grown on the estate were trodden the traditional way.

And where that olive tree, which is more than 1500 years old, marks the vineyard from a distance and stands as proof that, hundreds of years ago, Valladolid was a valley filled with olive trees.

Wine archaeology

The roots of our vines forge the intra-history of Tr3smano, a winery that combines values from the past that have given our wines a history and art that are very present today.

Located in the Golden Mile, the wines of Tr3smano are characterised by a combination of several factors that have determined their origin, forged their authenticity, inspired great dedication and evolved towards the avant-garde.

The first feature that gives our winery its personality is its origin, located near the Vaccei-Roman town of Pintia, conveniently positioned on the route of the XVIII road (Ab Asturica per Cantabriam Caesaraugustam) and near the necropolis of Las Ruedas.

Between the sixth and fourth centuries BC, this area was inhabited by the pre-Roman people known as the Vaccei, who, according to history, were the first inland people to drink wine on the peninsula. They used wine to create bonds and relations, drinking it at funeral wakes, believing that their deceased would move on to life after death.

Plates and bowls made of terra sigilata or ceramic cups and vases shared shelves, tables and hearths with the homes of the Imperial age in Pintia. Wine lost its elitist status and became a product widely consumed by poorer people.

Our winery, where the grapes grown on the estate were trodden the traditional way as from the 18th century, represents the exclusive devotion of Tr3smano, another of our winery’s values. With almost 300 years’ history, the winery transpires many sensations, memories and bouquets. A combination that consolidates respect for tradition, combining it with new oenology techniques.

Our winery is also protected by an olive tree that is more than 1500 years old and which looks over our vines. Its thick roots, deeply set in the earth and its powerful, twisted trunk show the exceptional authenticity Tr3smano continues to harvest with each vintage.

That’s why, at Tr3smano, we know that making each memory and combining all these inherent values (the Vaccei people, the olive tree, the winery) will help our history to remain part of present-day and progress towards the winegrowing avant-garde.
