Bodegas Riojanas treasures more than a century of winemaking tradition in its Cenicero winery. Its corners are steeped in history and talk of the passion for ageing wines that has always permeated it. This tradition and passion have been transmitted to the team that runs Bodegas Riojanas today. Its most precious legacy is its commitment to quality and the personality of its wines.
In early October, after the summer heat has passed, the harvest is carried out. This involves more than just picking grapes. The choice of optimal time for harvest, the productivity of the vines, the selection of the grape batches to be used in the winery’s different types of wine… Everything has an influence on the characteristics and final quality of wines obtained.
The batches of grapes from old vines are harvested in boxes to prevent the pressure from the weight from crushing the berries, thereby ensuring they arrive at the crush pad in optimal condition. Once there, they undergo a thorough manual sorting process, cluster by cluster, to make the wines that are the epitome of quality at Bodegas Riojanas.
Throughout its more than 100 years of history, the winemaking systems have evolved significantly —because, at Bodegas Riojanas, innovation is not incompatible with respect for tradition. Being a classic winery does not mean we make old-fashioned wine. That is why we have introduced the most advanced winemaking techniques, allowing us to adapt to current market trends.
