Vega Sicilia is Spain's most well known and prestigious estate. It was founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves, who brought vine cuttings from Bordeaux of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot to plant alongside Tinto Fino. Vega Sicilia's 3 cuvees include the flagship "Unico," a multi-vintage blend called "Reserva Especial," and the more forward-style Valbuena.

Depending on the vintage, Unico is made from a blend of 80% Tempranillo with the balance of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Traditionally the wine is aged for ten years in barrel before its release. The Reserva Especial is a blend of top vintages, while the Valbuena is made from younger vines and bottled after five years. A Valbuena cuvee with three years of aging was produced until 1998, but has been discontinued.

The Reserva Especial bottlings contain a unique blend of vintages:

1979 bottling: 1962, 1964, 1968 vintages, 1980 bottling: 1960, 1962, 1972 vintages, 1990 bottling: 1968, 1970 vintages, 1993 bottling: 1970, 1972 vintages, 1996 bottling: 1973, 1981 vintages, 1997 bottling: 1981, 1986, 1990 vintages, 1998 bottling: 1981, 1990 vintages, 2000 bottling: 1985, 1990, 1994 vintages, 2004 bottling: 1985, 1990, 1991 vintages, 2005 bottling: 1985, 1991, 1996 vintages
