Beronia is renowned for its Rioja Alta vineyards, its gastronomic origins, and its innovative barrel programTheir wines are defined by the region and the soils in which the vines are grown. The technical team at Beronia controls the winery's vineyards, enabling them to exercise complete control over the quality. Beronia’s blend is led by Tempranillo, and complemented by Graciano, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Viura. Sustainable agriculture is practiced at every level with certain vineyards certified organic.
The role of oak is key to the Beronia style. The winemaker and his team are constantly studying how the wines react to different levels of toasting and types of wood. These experiments have led to Beronia’s pioneering development of mixed barrels; produced from American oak staves and French oak tops.
Beronia was created and has evolved over the years with gastronomy always in mind—being the perfect accompaniment for many foods from traditional Riojan dishes to modern Basque pintxos. Consistently receiving awards from the most important international competitions, today Beronia is one of the top five Rioja brands in Spain.
Gather with your friends, savor this wine, and dream of Rioja just as the old friends that founded Beronia still do. Be sure to get enough bottles, don’t skimp, and treat yourself well with fabulous wine.
