Lopez de Heredia - one of the most venerable producers in Spain ? produces traditional, age-worthy red and white Rioja wines. Their wines are legendary and still made the way they were when the winery was founded over a hundred and thirty years ago. Following a tradition that has been passed down through generations, their wines are released at least five to ten years after harvest, which provides added complexity and elegance to their Crianzas and Gran Reservas. A rarity in Rioja, Lopez de Heredia uses only estate bottled fruit from their prized vineyards: Tondo�ia, Bosconia, Cubillo and Zaconia. Average vine age is 45 years old and organic farming and natural fermentations are implemented creating wines that exhibit great terroir.
