A flower grows on the vines.

Unknown, humble and honest
That as its people,
Legend of singularity and prowess.

To understand the project, it is necessary to talk about Pedro, Pedro González Mittelbrunn, one of the founding partners and promoter of Leyenda del Páramo.
He is and has been a key element in the recovery of the Prieto Picudo, a local variety (centennial, unique and autochthonous) almost forgotten. First as a defender of the variety within the appellation of origin, then as technical director in one of the main wineries in León and now, at the head of the development of Leyenda del Páramo.
Pedro lit the fuse of this adventure in 2009, he produced the first harvest of Leyenda del Páramo alone and thus advanced the birth of the winery.
