WHAT WE DO
At BODEGAS VIÑA OLABARRI, we select grapes from this part of Rioja to make and age wines for people who like to enjoy and revel in fine, highly aromatic wines soft on the palate with moderate body.
WHO WE ARE
The original winery was founded in 1958 in Haro by Mr. Pablo Olabarri Bikandi. A great wine lover, in 1985 he jumped at the opportunity to acquire an old, derelict 19th-century winery at Calle Las Bodegas, 88. After rebuilding the winery, and due to the need for modern facilities to age and bottle high-quality Rioja wines, in 1989 he built the Haro winery, with a capacity for 4,000 casks and a hall for aging bottled wines with space for 800,000 bottles.
Pablo Olabarri passed away in 1990, while the winery was in the process of consolidating its position in wine markets. His son, Luis Olabarri, took over as winery manager, a post he continues to hold today.
