We Love Rioja!

The title says it all, we love Rioja (The wine and the province!)

We recently took a trip to Rioja to visit some fantastic vineyards and wineries and we wanted to share some of our favourite moments from the trip with you!

Our first stop was Cune Winery. Cune was established in 1879 and today it still sits on its original site, in the wine district Barrio de la Estacion, in Haro, Rioja Alta wine region. The winery comprises of both structures and cellars, most dating from the 19th century! Above are some photos e took of their impressive oak barrels full of their beautiful wines.

The above photo was taken in one of Cune wineries many cellars, this is the personal collection of the owner. Everything is covered in penicillin mould which protects the wine. There is an 1888 bottle in this collection! He won’t sell a single bottle to anyone no matter what they offer (he once turned down a huge one million for some of his collection), that is love and dedication!

The next stop was Vina Real winery, located on the Cerro de la Mesa Hill, Alavesa, Rioja! Their building is designed to look like a wine barrel! We loved their wines so much we took five of their wines home with us and sold them on our specials board! Our favourite was the Vina Real Gran Reserva, made from the Tempranillo and Graciano grapes, it is deep ruby red in colour, with shades of garnet, with complex and intense flavours, mainly due to its stay in oak, giving notes of leather, coffee and spices, as well as a well integrated flavour of stewed fruits.

Our final stop on our vineyard tour was the beautiful Contino Winery. Above is a photo of our very own Alex with Jesus Madras the winemaker at Contino. They call him ‘Mr Graciano’ (Jesus that is, not Alex), as he was the first winemaker to use 100% Graciano grapes in Rioja wine!

The bottom left picture shows Jesus taking wine for us to taste from one of the 15 barrels of 2013 Rioja. The weather was so bad in 2013 only enough grapes to make 15 barrels passed the highly stringent quality checks demanded by Continuo (which is a very small amount for a winery the size of Contino). Because there is so little of this wine it will never be sold to the public, destined to become a legendary wine. We were very privileged to sample it!

We want to say a huge thank you to Mathew Clark for taking us on such an amazing trip and to everyone who came to the Rioja wine tasting at The Decanter, we brought all the wine home for all of our customers to taste, of course!
