Our wines represent the HARMONY between the old and new world, Spanish heritage with modern
Producing wine since 1870. Our grapes come from the oldest (1929) and highest quality vineyards in Rioja Alta. French oak againg.
RIOJA ALTA extends through the territories between Haro and Logroño , south of the river Ebro. It is a humid and mountainous zone due to its higher elevation above sea level and with a totally Atlantic climate.
Most of its soils are of alluvial earth, limestone clay ferrous. This altitude slows down the maturity of the grape, a grape that has more acidity, more freshness, less alcoholic strength, a low average color intensity, and a great potential for aging.
