Pioneers in wines, breaking away from fixed patterns such as Conde Valdemar barrel fermented white wine, a wine made from grapes harvested from a unique vineyard “Finca Alto Cantabria” which surprised everybody in 1987 by being the first white wine fermented in barrels in the Rioja appellation. Twenty-five years later it was selected as one of the best 100 wines in the world in 2013 by Wine Spectator.
Advocates of the Garnacha grape variety, at the end of the 1980’s we made our first Garnacha Reserva with the Rioja appellation of origin, and today we are able to offer our customers a 100% single-variety Garnacha wine, oak-aged for 10 months which has a surprisingly fruity palate and deep garnet-red colour.
Acknowledged as one of the Best wineries in La Rioja with most tradition and history of producing Gran Reserva wines, true oenological treasures that are proof of the greatness and know-how of the winery.
