Research & Development: Protos innovates.
Getting deeply committed to research is one of the Bodegas Protos’ defining features. Furthermore, the combination of research, development and innovation (R+D+I) has helped build the leading position we have today in this field,not only in the Ribera del Duero area but also all across Spanish wine and vine-growing sector.
In keeping with the company motto of Ser primero ("Being First"), we have been continuously dedicated since 1927, the winery’s founding year, to improving and discovering new technologies for wine making.
Nowadays our technical team, made up by a dozen of oenologists, engineers and chemists, combine expertise and youth. This, together with a total of 3.4 million Euros being invested since 2007 to present, is the firm basis for a continued progress towards finding new ways to fulfil always a single aim: an ongoing improvement to make the best wine.
