The Winery

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta

On July 10, 1890, five Basque and Rioja-based vine growers created "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta" in what is known as the Haro Station District. This was the beginning of a fascinating business venture in which the only dream of the five founders was to craft and age high-quality wines.

Une couleur claire de cerise, avec une robe épaisse. Arômes de fruits rouges. Je l'ai trouvé vivifiant et frais.
J'ai accompagné ce 1998 avec des légumes cuits à la vapeur.
Le Gran Reserva 890 provient aussi de chez La Rioja Alta.
Excellent rapport qualité prix.

Its colour didn't quite convince me, but it tasted really good. Tobacco aromas. Very balanced . The 2004 completely outshined the stew I had prepared.
I and my clients from Rioja tasted it together. I do not know whether I prefer this 2004 or the previous vintage.

I drank it with a business client.
Red with violet edges. Dense aroma of red fruit marmalade. Passes easily across the palate, smooth and very nice.
It accompanied us with desserts.
