LA BICICLETA VOLADORA, GERMÁN BLANCO, RIOJA

The underlying philosophy of La Bicicleta Voladora is akin to the one which drives the other two projects of German Blanco (Quinta Milu in Ribera del Duero and Casa Aurora in Bierzo Alto): organic viticulture and minimum intervention in the cellar with the aim to bottle landscapes from the winemaker’s perspective. With the grapes sourced from the trusted growers in Navarra part of Rioja, German together with his friend Javier Colio, make fresh, fluid, vertical reds. Mostly Tempranillo, with proportion of Viura are both destemmed without crushing. The fermentation with native yeast is gradual and extraction process is gentle. Aging takes place in combination of concrete, amphorae, and flex – tank eggs of various size, lasting around 8 months.

OLIVIER RIVIERE

OLIVIER RIVIERE, RIOJA

Olivier Rivière, a native of Cognac, studied enology in Montagne St-Emilion, working briefly with Elian Da Ros in Côtes-du-Marmandais, then at Domaine Leroy in Vosne – Romanée. His main interest there was to learn about biodynamic methods, a skill he further developed at Domaine de Chassorney in St-Romain and Domaine de la Combe in Pommard.

In 2004 Olivier arrived in Spain to experience and work with different type of terroir. He started from consulting for Telmo Rodriguez in Rioja Alavesa and in 2007 moved on to found his own micro negociant project. His grapes come from three types of soils: the Graciano vines and part of the Tempranillo for the bottling of Rayos Uva grow on alluvial soils, sandy with round stones; the old vines Garnacha (65 to 90 years) that go into Ganko grow on red soil, with marl and sand coloured by ferrous oxides, at an altitude of 600 meters in Rioja Alta; the best Tempranillo vines (25 years old) are in Rioja Alavesa, on clay and limestone soils at 650 meters. Altitude is extremely important to Rivière, the cool nights keep acidity in the grapes, so he can make much fresher wines than most in the region.

BODEGAAKUTAIN
VIGNERON.png
BODEGA AKUTAIN, JON PEÑAGARICANO, RIOJA ALTA (HARO)

Despite already working with six wineries from Rioja, we could not resist adding Bodega Akutain to our portfolio – for their wines reminded us why we have fallen in love with this region in the first place!

Akutain is a small, family owned bodega, situated in the higher (500 – 650m) parts of Rioja Alta – four kilometres west of the historic town of Haro. It is currently run by Jon Peñagaricano who continues the work of his father Juan Jose Peñagaricano Akutain. Back in 1975, Juan Jose planted his first vines here, converting an old barn into a small winery and the underground cellar.

What sets Akutains apart, is that all their wines are made with the grapes grown by themselves. The family works just 6.5 hectares of vines, planted on limestone rich soil, and spread across four plots surrounding the winery. The wines are fermented with natural yeast in fiberglass tanks and aged in used American oak barrels. Additional ageing follows in the underground cellar before release.  The production is small and until now Akutain remained a “hidden gem” of Rioja Alta – completely off the radar of the wine critiques. In some way this made us appreciate this traditional “grower” style Rioja even more!

RAFAEL LOPEZ DE HEREDIA
RAFAEL LÓPEZ DE HEREDIA, RIOJA ALTA (HARO)

Founded in 1877 by Rafael López de Heredia, the great grandfather of the currents owners, this is one of the first three wineries created in Rioja and the oldest one in Haro. Many conditions must have been fulfilled for López de Heredia wines to achieve their superlative status, making them live on in memory of those who have tasted them. The character of their wines is influenced by the climate, soil, attentive work in the vineyards,  as well as the ultra-traditional winemaking and care during the lengthy period of ageing in old American oak barrels and in the bottles. During over 140 years of its existence the winery saw fashions come and go, never giving in to modernity...

María Jóse López de Heredia, currently at the helm of the family winery, humbly says: “We keep making Viña Tondonia as we have always done it”.

ARTUKE, ARTURO DE MIGUEL BLANCO, RIOJA ALAVESA (BAÑOS DE EBRO)

Bodegas Artuke is a 25-hectare family winery in Baños de Ebro, Rioja Alavesa. Roberto de Miguel started bottling his own wine in 1991. For over a decade now, his two sons Arturo and Kike continue this work. We have been following their progress closely from the beginning and they keep surprising us vintage after vintage. Their philosophy is that you can only make great wine from the best grapes. Artuke is part of Rioja’n’Roll, a group of young producers committed to making singular wines which reflect their origins and terroir. Over the years Arturo and Kike kept recovering old and vineyards in Baños de Ebro, Ábalos, San Vicente de la Sonsierra and most recently in Samaniego – striving to preserve them rather than impose changes. Traditional approach to viticulture (bush vine and 5.500kg limit on yield per hectare) is combined with the winemaking which respects the land and the plants.

BODEGAS MARTÍNEZ LACUESTA ,  RIOJA ALTA (HARO)

Félix Martínez Lacuesta, a lawyer by profession, politician and businessman by vocation, set up the Martínez Lacuesta Hermanos business in 1895. Almost immediately his five brothers joined the firm and trust began a voyage into the world of Rioja wine which today the third generation of the family are proud to continue. From that time until the present the firm has  stuck to the same initial philosophy: to create great Rioja wines.

LA GRANJA DE NTRA SR. DE REMELLURI

VIGNERON.png
LA GRANJA DE NUESTRA SEÑORA  DE REMELLURI, TELMO RODRÍGUEZ, RIOJA ALAVESA

After years of traveling around Spain in search of forgotten old vine plots, Telmo Rodríguez has returned to his family winery. The historic La Granja de Nuestra Senora de Remelluri estate is just outside the village of Labastida in Rioja Alavesa. Remelluri vineyards, which surround it, stretch along the slopes of Sierra de Toloño mountains, at the highest elevation in the region, benefiting from the unique microclimate, combining cooling Atlantic influence with just enough warmth to ripen the grapes to perfection. Organic and biodynamic principles are followed to ensure that the wine remains true to its unique terruño a All plots are vinified separately, and the vines are head pruned in a traditional way. Telmo seeks to remain true to his family estate’s vaunted history, while guiding it into a bright tomorrow. His place – oriented approach is exemplified in Remelluri´s newest project: Lindes de Remelluri, meaning “the borders of Remelluri”. The two wines in this range are made from the grapes grown by local farmers from San Vicente de la Sonsierra and from Labastida. This is Telmo’s way to support the local community, as much as a tribute to the unique features of the two villages.
