“Since the beginning of my exporting career I have long dreamt of having my own small “bodega”, where I could make a few bottles of wine of the best quality possible. Briones, in the heart of the Rioja Alta, gathered all the conditions I was looking for: old steep vineyards of Tempranillo grapes, chalky soil and a climate showing a marked Atlantic influence. Declared a town of historic and artistic merit, Briones is where we decided to site our bodega.”

“Now, as one of the smallest wineries in Spain, our wines are among the most prestigious in the country, and we are exporting them to over twenty markets. With the recent incorporation of my son Miguel and his wife Erika we are encouraged to grow, not in quantity, but in improving our style. We want to continue to enjoy our wine-making.”
