WELCOME TO HACIENDA EL TERNERO
The origins of Hacienda El Ternero date back to 1077, a time when it belonged to the Santa María de Herrera Monastery. In the heart of the hacienda, buildings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries now house the winery, whilst in the past they were used as the monastery, barracks, school and a hospice for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago. In the centre, the Hacienda El Ternero hermitage watches over the Virgin of the Pear, the patron saint of the estate.

LEARN ABOUT OUR HERITAGE
With almost one thousand years of history, time seems to have stopped at Hacienda El Ternero.
It is a unique enclave with a landscape and buildings that have resisted the passage of time: orange trees from New Orleans, Douglas firs, spruce forests and vineyards surround the winery, protecting the former quarters of the monks, the cemetery and the hermitage in the very centre of the hacienda.
