Protos’ mission since 1927 has been to be faithful to our claim “BEING FIRST”, as an attitude of constant improvement with the sole aim of elaborating the best wine. These visionaries knew the importance of listening to the “terroir” and understanding its needs, imagining a succesful endeavor that has not only been kept intact but continues to grow, always looking at the future. Its beginnings are important because the pillars on which they were built have to lead the way: Quality as the maximum priority and Brand as a sustainable competitive edge. Proof of this importance comes since their first vintages (1927 & 1928) that won Gold Medals at the Universal Exposition of Barcelona in 1929. In 2008 Protos, true to its roots and keeping up with an ever evolving industry, built a new state-of-the-art winery in Peñafiel. This magnificent installation was designed by the prestigious architectural firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (led by genious architect, Richard Rogers, Priztker award in architecture, 2007) in colaboration with Alonso Balaguer y Arquitectos Asociados. Blending together the know-how of their long history with the new technologies that help Protos to continue making better and more sustainable wines.
