The history of the winery dates back to 1935. 80 years of history and effort have made Cuatro Rayas the reference in Spanish white wines today.
"Aceiteros por tradición" (Olive oil producers by tradition) a slogan that we have had for generations. In Mueloliva we have made of the olive oil a lifestyle. Based in the middle of Subbetic Cordoban, we make our products as tradition dictates, with the patience and care that a great olive oil needs, and all this to be a benchmark in the modern lifestyle and healthy eating.
Almazaras de la Subbetica, the name of our oil mills, is a premier agricultural cooperative, formed in July 2007 from the merger of two prestigious and longstanding cooperatives: S.C.A. Virgen del Castillo and S.C.A. Olivarera Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno, both with over 60 years experience in the industry.
Founded in 1950 by Avelino Vegas in the Segovian village of Santiuste de San Juan Bautista. The winery began its activity producing wines with grapes from the area. Nowadays, with the third generation incorporated into the business, it has two wineries, one in his hometown, belonging to D.O. Rueda and the other in the town of Fuentespina, with D.O. Ribera del Duero.
The cellar stands near the Duero River, adorning a road as Castilian as the one connecting Soria and Valladolid. The building is an ode to stone, solid and rustic, forming arcades of monastic reminiscence, with towers at the sides and a belfry crowned by a weathercock at the centre.
Historians know the name Valdueza for the relevance of the Álvarez de Toledo family in the history of Spain, Europe, and America. Romantics will tell you that we are one of the last families that still drives cattle on horseback from Extremadura to Ávila. For gourmets, the name Valdueza means a magnificent olive oil, red wine, vinegar, and honey.
Our Wine Route has been visited by such significant historical figures as the Catholic Monarchs, Philip II or Napoleon Bonaparte, as well as, important Castilian nobility or Cistercian and Trappist clergy.
