In one way or another, the Pita family has always been connected to the world of wine. Every October, as is the case in many homes, all the members of the family dive into the small family plot of land to produce wine in a traditional manner. Destiny had it that, years later, Emilio Pita would resolve make it his way of life. Just after his 23rd birthday, he began his studies in Oenology at the University of Bordeaux and then continued his education in California and New Zealand.
In 2010, he returned to Rubí de Bracamonte (Valladolid) and commenced the Verderrubí project: a family-run winery that always seeks to preserve the identity of its terroir in all its wines. This idea was expressed in the first year with Dominio de Verderrubí, its young Verdejo, which was followed in 2011 by the Atipyque and Pita wines, with which the winery extolled the expression of the land in each bottle. The family’s latest dream, which links them even further with the origins of this story, was fulfilled in 2014, with the market launch of La Bonera. This is one of the few red wines made in the Rueda Denomination of Origin, and it originates from the vineyard where the Pita family began their adventure.
