In 1986, the Alvarez family, which owns the Bodegas Vega Sicilia that produces the legendary "Unico", decided to create vineyards to produce a quality wine with a different philosophy and its own identity, quite independent of the Bodegas Vega Sicilia. The vineyards and cellars are located in Peñafiel (Valladolid). The first vintage, "Alion 1991", appeared in 1995. It was immediately ranked amongst the Wine Spectator's top 100 wines of the world.
