The Fernández de Piérola winery was founded in 1996 with the aim of producing quality wines with a personality different from the standardized taste of most Rioja wines. With these two objectives in mind, we established our small family winery, from the family vineyards we own in Moreda (Rioja Alavesa), a traditional winemaking region.
This philosophy of 'pago', of correlation vineyard - wine, is fundamental in our judgment in order for the wines to acquire their distinctive personality and to reflect the singular characteristics where they come from. .
Because of that, our Winery is supplied only with grapes originating from Moreda's vineyards, 50 % from our own and the rest from other growers.
The singular microclimatic conditions that enjoy our vineyards (moderated rainfall; 450 l/m2, fragile areas, a great part of they in hillsides orientated towards the south, which allows a suitable luminosity, poor, clayey - calcareous soils, of scarce production, important temperature jumps between day and night....) are those that allow that our Tempranillo variety reach its ideal ripeness.
