PRODUCER: Family tradition in winemaking forge the character of Alonso López. It is elaborated in “LaPuebla de Labarca” village, the golden Rioja area of only 2km2 located in Rioja Alavesa.
Alonso López is sourced from two plots of 40 year old vines. These vineyards are located on the slopes of the mountains of Laguardia and Lapuebla de Labarca, between 430 and 580 meters of altitude. Due to their unique situation, the climate is Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental. Our peculiar farming system has allowed us to develop a control system that allows us to elaborate high quality wines and discover the potential of each of our vineyards. The well-established trellised vineyards were planted in La Rioja Alta at an altitude of 650m, where the mild Atlantic climate prevails. Our winery lies on the path of the world-famous Camino de Santiago, nestled in the heart of Spain’s world-famous Rioja Alta wine region.
