Pardevalles is recognized for being one of the driving forces behind the D.O Tierra de León, betting on the development of the indigenous grape varieties Prieto Picudo and Albarín Blanco. The Albarín grape is an indigenous variety from the south of the province of León. This grape variety had almost disappeared until Pardevalles recovered it. 

Pardevalles Estate was founded in 1949 by Rafael Alonso, in line with a family tradition going back generations dedicated to growing grapes and making wine. At the present time the 2nd and 3rd generations of the family operate the Estate, preserving the essence with which it was founded. 

The winery is located in the village of Valdevimbre Leon, near the Camino de Santiago, and famous for its centuries-old caves where once wine was produced. Currently, the winery combines modern facilities for the production of wines with a cave for more than 300 years old casks where the park is located.

The estate has 38 hectares of vineyard itself, with   Prieto Picudo and Albarín blanco planted on quaternary soils with a large amount of rounded stones in the soil which absorb the heat of the sun during the day. This helps the plant to bear the low temperatures at night as well as to improve the ripening of the grapes. High elevation vineyards (750 - 860 m), with marked differences between maximum and minimum temperatures and sharp thermal contrasts between the day and the night - help developm aromatics in the skin of the grape.

the wines age in a historic subterranean cave which is more than 300 years old where the wine ages naturally and at a constant temperature of 12 ºC and a humidity of 75 - 80% all year round. The barrel room is made up of 125 barrels made of French and American oak.
