Rioja is arguably the best known wine region the world, and especially in the UK where year on year we buy about a third of their total global export. The c.600 winery-strong region, set across the communities of La Rioja, Navarre, and the Basque province of Álava is the spiritual home of Tempranillo. At c.140km from the North coast it benefits from a real continental climate. Moderated by the Cantabiran mountains to the north the best sites, at 400-800m, are in the subregions of Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Whites are made from Viura but these days Rioja is over 85% red. Oak aging (and choice of oak) plays a huge role, with wines made Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva all having their own distinctive styles and fans.

We are the result of a dream come true when in 1998, Francisco Ruiz, decided to build his own winery to elaborate the grapes from his vineyards. All the vineyards had been organically cultivated in a particular area in the small village of Aldeanueva de Ebro in the Rioja region. The idea was to offer the best quality wines that this land has to offer using only organically and sustainable parameters. This was quite a rare idea in Rioja back in 1998 but we knew that organic and biodynamic was the only way to give quality and terroir to our wines. Today we are the only organic and Demeter certified winery in the Rioja region.

Tasting note:
Winemaking Detail: Mechanical lly harvested at the end of August in small 2000kg containers so that they arrive at the winery quickly and we harvest the next load in that same morning when the pressing ends always considering the temperature. Here the grapes as entire grains are gently pressed with a pneumatic press that crushed towards the center of the press so no seeds are crushed. This wine is then taken to a 10L stainless steel tank under controlled temperature. Fermentation starts in around 2 days and will last around 7 days.
