    About The Producer

    La Rioja Alta

    La Rioja Alta stands out as a leading winery in the Rioja area, established in 1890 by a group of five families from Rioja and the Basque Country. It has gained acclaim for its traditional, spicy Gran Reserva red wines, which are renowned for their ability to mature elegantly over numerous years. The winery is named after the Rioja Alta (Upper Rioja) subregion, where much of its activity is centered.
