The facilities of Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia are located in the town of Samaniego, on a high slope at the foot of the imposing Sierra de Cantabria. Building began in 2015, it has been operational since 2016 and was inaugurated in June 2017.
Its design belongs to Spanish architect Enrique Johansson. The winery consists of a constructed area of 10,000 m2 plus another 40,000 meters of gardens and service areas. It is divided into 3 interconnected units: the Agua unit, where the grape input and processing are focused, with 45 tanks of 10,000 liters in oak and stainless steel; the Tierra unit, which houses the area for aging in barrel and bottle; and the Sol unit, where the offices and the product delivery area are located.
The winery is built taking advantage of the natural slope of the hillside. The materials used are concrete and, for the roofs, zinc. It is equipped with modern winery equipment and has an energy efficiency system based on solar panels and biomass. The facilities have the capacity to produce 350,000 bottles per year.
