ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
This family-run winery was founded in 1992, which was the first year it released its young red wines on the market. Located in Labastida's Jewish Quarter (Rioja Alavesa), its facilities consist of four houses, two of which are among the oldest in the town. Underneath these houses is a curious network of caves that dates back to 1200. These caves are ideally suited for storing young wines (in concrete tanks) and aging vintage wines, since there are no temperature changes or noise, and the degree of humidity remains constant all year long.

The art of viticulture was passed down to the producers from their forefathers, and the latest generation has taken the next step: for the past 10 years, they have been engaged in both wine growing and wine making. They use the grapes from their own vineyards, which are located throughout Labastida, with a production output that they endeavor to keep below 6,000 kilos per hectare. Their own vineyards cover 20 hectares and currently produce the following grape varieties: Tempranillo 60%, Garnacha 15%, Viura 10%, Garnacha White 5%, Malvasia 5%, Graciano 5%.
