“Remelluri is the oldest property in Rioja. We climbed up through a path with the scent of wild anis, thyme, juniper, rosemary and sage. the vineyards here are set across 200 plots, with an average size of just one acre. They lie at the highest elevation of the region ”.

“Since 2010, the grapes from long term suppliers, have gone into two separate and different bottlings”. As all wines here, this is a blend of varieties, including Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Viura and Malvasia fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barrels for 10 months.” It is very interesting to see the different character of the vineyards of San Vicente and Labastida, a character quite evident in every vintage so far. With San Vicente producing more approachable wines and Labastida more austere and elegant juice since the ripening is slower, and the grapes harvested at least one week later.
