Product category: Rioja

Winery & Production

We get the maximum fruit accurately controlled temperature in the first fermentation (alcoholic) and the time in barrel. We produce our wines in tanks 3000-liter aerated concrete (porosity of this material allows the wine to breathe).
Then, once pressed green vertical air presses (which do not extract the excess skin), passes malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. We also use stainless steel tanks with a capacity of 15.000 litres and wooden vats 5.000 litres.
Indigenous yeast fermentation, stabilization of wine naturally by precipitation by their own gravity, without gelatine or eggs or any other animal product... Precise control over adding sulphites (15%), which is half the minimum amount allowed (30%).

All our wines have a strong presence of fruit flavours balanced with the wood that gives the barrel aging in French oak. Our organic wines have been awarded medals in Biocordoba, BioMillesime, BioFach, International Wine Challenge and Ecovino.
The corks are provided by FSC and the boxes are made of recycled cardboard.
Our wines are certified by the Regulating Council of Origin Rioja.
La Rioja was the first community to grant such certification in 1991. We firmly believe this philosophy in viticulture and oenology, as the only sustainable way to keep the soil and produce wines of consistent quality.

About us

Company details

We are a family of winegrowers, that takes several generations dedicated the cultivation of vineyard. We do organic farming since 1996 and since 2003 we started to commercialize our own ecological wines.

We are a winery in La Rioja. Located on deep soils with plenty of limestone rock. The average age of our vineyards: 40-100 years Tempranillo, over 40 years Grenache, 15-30 years Graciano, 50 years Viura and 5 years Verdejo. Our goal is to get centenarian vineyards, lately we have 12 hectares more to our exploitation between 60 and 100 years. Exploitation surface currently total: 52 hectares.

The success of our wines, may lie in our potential in variety Graciano which variety is very difficult to grow, requiring a limited humidity and temperature so it is not very abundant even be the most valued variety in Rioja right now.
