Next to our winery in Oyón, very close to Logroño and on the left bank of the River Ebro, are two vineyards with a surface area of 7 ha in which we grow the Graciano variety. These plots are located in Rioja Alavesa, have limestone-clay soils, and are influenced by an Atlantic type climate with mild temperatures and an average rainfall of 400 mm.
These Graciano vineyards produce high acidity musts with exuberant aromas and good longevity, making them perfect for blending Reservas and Grandes Reservas.
These plots are unique, as the difficulty involved in growing these vines and their late ripening cycle have decimated the hectares of this variety in La Rioja. We decided to plant them ourselves because they help increase the aromatic strength of the Tempranillo musts in our Reservas and Grandes Reservas, as well as contributing with colour and structure.
