In the mythical city of Haro, capital of La Rioja Alta, perhaps where the extraordinary sum of coincidences between the good climate and the severity of the land is best produced, are the López de Heredia Wineries, the oldest in Haro and one of the first three in La Rioja.
Back in 1877, and as a result of the concerns created in the middle of the century by the arrival of the French wine merchants (who came to La Rioja to solve the problems caused by the phylloxera in their vineyards), it was when Don Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta, a profound connoisseur and good student of these professionals, decides to follow in his footsteps and begins to plan and build what is now the winery.
So wisely and meticulously, that this kind of wine cathedral, like the authentic ones, is still unfinished and perhaps it is from that still latent spirit of the founder the sensation that is breathed, when stepping on his ships, of having traveled backwards in the weather.
