The answer should be: Of course, Organic.
Commitment, interest and believing that great wines can be made protecting our land, our planet, without using elements that harm everything we love and we wish to leave improved for the future generations.
Organic agriculture does not use chemical fertilizers nor pesticides; it only uses natural and traditional cultivation methods that do not leave any chemical residue in foodstuffs.
Working with the uncertainty that farmers face every day, expecting the most from nature and trying to adapt to the ecosystem, to its rhythms, climate, force and beauty.
We believe that Organic wines are not just a matter of health or taste. Drinking Organic and Biodynamic wines is drinking wines with landscape and soul, in opposition to the monotonous offer from the big industry. A different way of understanding and communicating with nature.
Built in 1998, in the heart of La Rioja Baja, in Aldeanueva de Ebro, it has a wine making capacity of 600,000 litres and all the wine produced is organic wine.
The winery consists of three buildings: elaboration, ageing and bottling.
In the elaboration building there are stainless steel and concrete tanks whose capacity ranges between 500 and 50,000 litres. In the ageing building there are 600 French and American oak barrels, where the wine waits in silence until it turns into the whole meaning of La Rioja. The bottle store has a capacity of 90,000 bottles.
