Our own vineyards, quality assurance
The largest winegrower in rioja
Our land, our heritage
Without the land, without the vineyard, we are nothing. we know what we are talking about. We are the largest winegrower in the denomination of origin rioja, with 730 hectares of our own vineyards. Simultaneous commitment and quality assurance.
The vineyard is the main source of quality for the wines. For this reason, the commitment of El Coto de Rioja, our commitment, has been from the beginning to have as much of our own vineyard as possible. In this way, we can guarantee the quality of our wines year after year.
The El Coto de Rioja vineyards are distributed throughout all the sub-areas of the Rioja Denomination of Origin. The use of traditional autochthonous varieties and the new authorized ones allows us to maintain all the typicality of Rioja in our wines.
In addition to the great existing heritage of the old vineyard, among the estates owned include Carbonera, the vineyard planted at the highest altitude in Rioja (840 m), ideal for growing white varieties, and Finca Los Almendros, which with its 450 hectares is the largest vineyard in the entire Denomination.
Eight farms distributed throughout all the Rioja Denomination sub-areas total a total of 730 hectares of vineyards owned.
In Rioja Alavesa, El Coto de Rioja has vineyards in Elvillar de Álava, Yécora and Oyón. They are mostly old vineyards, sheltered by the Sierra de Cantabria and divided into small parcels of land, as is traditionally representative throughout the region.
In Rioja Alta, our owned vineyard is centralized in Cenicero and its surroundings. Although closer to the valley, they are also vineyards at a certain altitude, which mainly guarantees long hours of exposure to the sun.
