Bodegas Riojanas controls more than 300 hectares. Of the best vineyards in Cenicero, San Vicente de la Sonsierra and nearby towns. The grape that is par excellence harvested in Rioja is Tempranillo, but Bodegas Riojanas also has one of the largest extensions dedicated to Mazuelo and Graciano within the Denomination, varieties that give the wines it produces a greater personality.
The different vineyard plots are located on clay-calcareous soils, of Miocene origin, suitable for producing the highest qualities. In early October, once the heat of summer has passed, the harvest is carried out, which is more than just simple harvesting the grapes. The choice of the optimal time for harvesting, the productivity of the vines, the selection of the grape consignments destined to elaborate the different types of wine from the winery ... Everything will influence the characteristics and final quality of the wines obtained.
The grape consignments from old vineyards are collected in boxes, to prevent the pressure produced by the weight from breaking the grape grains and arriving in the best conditions at the winery. Once there, they undergo a meticulous manual selection bunch by bunch, thus producing the wines that constitute the maximum exponent of quality at Bodegas Riojanas.
