The winery we work with has a 60 hectare estate in Rioja Alta, and has long-term contracts with local growers to
source high quality grapes (predominantly Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano) from approximately
400 hectares of prime vineyard around Haro and Briones.
Here the climate has Atlantic influences - with long, cold winters and warm summers with cool evenings. This
suits gentle ripening of the grapes in order to produce elegant wines. The result is a range of contemporary and
vibrant Riojas from quality fruit and at sensible prices.
In The Vineyard
The Tempranillo grapes are harvested in early
October from vineyards in Rioja Alta. Vines on
average 10-20 years old.
