La Rioja Alta has been formed by five families from Rioja and Basque almost 1.5 centuries ago. Since then the brand undergo a few transformations and released such iconic wines as Grand Reserva 890 (named after their first release in 1890), Gran Reserva 904 (you guessed it, first released in 1904), Vina Arana, and others. After the winery celebrated its 100th birthday, the company started exploring new territories. The first was the journey to Ribera del Duero; today, they have acquired 791 hectares of wineries in four different regions.

The producers blend the knowledge of history and the most recent technological advances in the challenging art of producing exceptional wines.

The Vina Alberdi brand was registered in 1978 and has produced amazing quality crowd-pleasers.

The wine is first aged in barrels for 2 years, acquiring a delicious hint of vanilla and dried coconut. It then continues to age in bottles, refining its personality and developing its traits completely. It is notable for its intensity, with notes of coffee cream, cinnamon, brioche, and hazelnuts following red fruit aromas of strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants, and cherries. The harmony of acidity and alcohol on the palate is followed by soft, sweet, rounded tannins and an amazing aftertaste.

Food pairing suggestion: Rack of lamb is ideal.

Did you know? Since oak is the primary ingredient in the ageing process, the winemakers produce all of the 30,000 or so barrels that they now have by hand. The wood comes in from the States and is let to air-dry for two years. Every barrel is crafted by their own coopers in the cooperage of our 100-year-old facility in Haro. Every barrel is racked by hand by candlelight every six months, enhancing the wine’s development by naturally eliminating sediments and carefully watching each barrel is an art.

    Great Rioja. Smooth, dry tannins. Wonderful balance with a medium/long finish. Fantastic for the price.
