You will like to know that…

Wines from the Rioja region of Spain have a unique personality and quality that have made them famous around the world. From humble beginnings on what was just a small parcel of land in the Rioja a century ago, the Vivanco family has managed to survive and thrive, growing into a company that lives and breathes wine. It even offers a Museum of Wine Culture that is dedicated to the 8000 years of history shared between wine and man.

One of the first things that you will notice when looking at a bottle of Vivanco Crianza is the label. In the centre is a corkscrew, with its arms wide open, welcoming you to join it in this beautiful wine experience. This painting, Le Troubadour by none other than Joan Miró, currently hangs in the Vivanco Museum and is the perfect representation of what this award-winning wine has to offer.

Vivanco Crianza is a colourful and bold wine that is very balanced and elegant at the same time. The nuance in both flavour and aroma make it a joy to drink. A lot of work goes into every bottle of Vivanco Crianza and it shows. The mix of grapes in this cherry red wine make for a well-rounded wine that is perfect to pair with the food and company you deem fit.

The Winery

Bodegas Vivanco

Bodegas Vivanco

The origins of the winemaking vocation of the Vivanco family date back to the year 1915; to the winemaking district of the village of Alberite, La Rioja, where Pedro Vivanco Gonzalez started to make wine for family use from his vineyards. In 1940 he bought a small wine cellar business in the same village. A curious caption had been carved over the door of that cellar reading: "he who walks by and is thirsty, if the door is, should enter and drink".

4 /5

The Vivanco Winery, based in Briones, located in La Rioja Alta on the banks of the Ebro River, is responsible for producing the exquisite Vivanco Crianza Dinastía 2015. This wine is made from grapes cultivated in vineyards that are between 15 and 20 years old and grown on a ferrous-clay soil.

Characteristically, each fruit represents the climatic and geographical conditions of the territory in which it is grown, and during the manufacturing process its natural properties are preserved to the maximum. This is guaranteed by exhaustive research carried out in the wineries to optimize viticultural practices.
