La Rioja is nestled in the valley of the Ebro, sheltered from the cold northerly winds by the Sierra de la Cantabrian Mountains and the fierce southerly winds that sweep over the Iberian plateau by the Sierra de la Demanda Mountains; whereby, providing us a unique location to cultivate our vines.
La Rioja is comprised of three different provinces, each with their specific climatic conditions: the Atlantic in La Rioja Alta, the Mediterranean in La Rioja Baja, and both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean in La Rioja Alavesa. To the East, down towards the Ebro River, the climate is dry and temperate is a result of the Mediterranean influence.
As a result of the different soil types: ferrous, calcareous and alluvial, La Rioja offers a wide range of opportunities to elaborate wines of excellent quality.
Since we first began making our wines in 1995, we have worked to select different plots of land throughout La Rioja which allowed us not only to produce wines of high quality, but that express the complexity and essence of the land. Our aim is to elaborate wines that show the diversity and complexity of La Rioja, each expressing their specific terroir. Currently, we harvest 150 hectares in over 15 different municipalities of DOCa Rioja. The lands were selected based on the unique properties of the grapes, their yields, the topography, the microclimate and the soil.
Our technicians work closely with our farmers to obtain a high quality product that we may nurture and develop in our winery so as to reach its full potential. From the beginning of maturation up until the harvest, we work tirelessly to ensure the grapes reach their optimum maturation though continual tasting and ongoing analysis.
