The production of red Rioja wine in the Heras Cordón family dates back to the 19th century. It is at this time when they built their first drafts, excavated in earth and rock, in Lapuebla de LaBarca, in the Rioja Alavesa. In these early years, production volumes were low, as the wine was intended for local consumption and was dispensed in bulk.
With the Civil War there was a break in the production of its Rioja red wine, and it was resumed shortly afterwards with a modernization of the winery, including the production of wines aged in oak barrels, mainly of French origin.
