La Rioja: Get the best from the main wine producing region in Spain
Rioja is the most renown wine producing area in Spain. In 1787 the Royal Economic Society Rioja Growers was created, aimed at promoting the cultivation of vines, wine production and trade development. In 1902, a Royal Decree which defined the "origin" for application to the wines of Rioja was issued. It has the status of Qualified Denomination of Origin (DOC) first and only in Spain that has this range. It is located in northern Spain, on both sides of the River Ebro and it is divided in 3 territories: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. Its local grape varieties are Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo and Maturana.
Vineyards are located in some of the oldest producing terroirs within the Rioja region, where the finest grapes are formed as the years by natural selection have demonstrated.
All the wines from this cellar come from an exceptional single vineyard from La Rioja Alta, where the stones that were moved in the Tertiary Age by an old dried glacier conform the land where the vines are growing, giving them an special character and minerality.
