Vintae

Richy Arambarri
Logroño, Rioja
Vintae has its origin in the passion for wine of José Miguel Arambarri Terrero, a businessman from La Rioja who in 1999 decided to return to family origins, recovering the Small Grain Muscat in La Rioja which had disappeared due to phylloxera. His vision gave rise to Castillo de Maetierra and Maetierra Dominum, the two wineries that were the origin of Vintae and where we began to elaborate Libalis. With the incorporation of his two sons, Richi and José Miguel, Vintae became what it is today.
In 2003 they created the Hacienda López de Haro wine collection, from 2004 they started exploring vineyards in Ribera del Duero (Bardos), Navarra (Aroa) and Ribera del Queiles (Garnachas Project), and 2006 was the year we built Bodega Classical in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in addition to beginning to elaborate in Toro (Matsu). Later Atlantis was to arrive, the sparkling wine Francesc Ricart or Classica, a collection of Rioja's “Gran Reservas”.

The adventure they started almost twenty years ago has not slowed down thanks to their creativity and desire to explore and create wines. That is why today they own more than 300 hectares of own vineyards and cultivate 38 different varietals, whose grapes produce more than 35 different wines so that hundreds of thousands of people can enjoy them in more than 60 countries.

And those who are still waiting ; )

El Recio 2019

Tasting: Tinta de Toro, although Tempranillo, is generally considered a DNA variant of Tempranillo, it has smaller berries and ticker skins so makes much bigger wines than Tempranillo in the Duero valley generally does.

Powerful flavours of dark earthy black fruit, new leather and fresh tobacco with baking spices in support.
