Gorka and Itxaso have taken over their family vineyards in Rioja, deciding to vinify and bottle their own wine rather than sell to large scale industrial producers in the area. They are determined to make some pure Rioja wines that respect the almost lost traditions and history of this rich winemaking region, such as vinification in open top cement vats and co-fermenting red & white grapes.
This is mostly Tempranillo with a splash of Viura & Malvasia, vinified in open topped cement vats & aged in barrel.
