The Producer

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta is one of the most legendary and revered wineries in all of Spain. Since 1890, they have produced wines that are the epitome of traditional Rioja, and have stood the test of time. Across the board, in almost any vintage, they produce extraordinary wines of exceptional purity and complexity.

La Rioja Alta was established exactly 131 years ago. This historic winery, located in the Barrio de la Estación area in Haro was founded by five Basque and Riojan vine growers and holds the honour of having converted the name of the Rioja subzone into their brand. Few wineries anywhere in the world continue the kinds of classic practices that are still the norm here: La Rioja Alta is the embodiment of dedication and heritage.
