Who are we?

Our history…

With a long family tradition linked to agriculture, Pistacyl was born in 2001 with its constitution as a company promoted by the Pérez Heras siblings.

Initially it was focused on working the vineyard, with a first plantation of 3 hectares in Pozal de Gallinas, a town in Valladolid where the family comes from.

Over the years, Pistacyl expanded its activity to the provision of viticulture, agricultural and forestry services, and in 2008 it made a firm commitment to pistachio cultivation in Castile and Leon.


Currently, our company is the largest producer in the Region, a pioneer in the marketing of raw pistachios and a benchmark in specialized advice on this crop.

In addition, since 2021, at Grupo Pistacyl we have also been producing our own DO Rueda wine, which we market under the Desacato brand.

And all this without losing our roots and our attachment to the land, but always with our sight on the future.
