About This Wine
In the world of wine, one can never afford to rest on their laurels.
So even though the people behind the Castroviejo label have vast experience in crafting world-class wines, they also believe in investing in the most modern cellar equipment. That’s why they are among the most dependable producers in the Rioja growing region of Spain.
The Rioja region is situated in the northern part of the country, not far from the French border. A little known fact is that the first high-quality Riojas were shaped in the late 1800s by Bordeaux vintners who moved to the area after a phylloxera outbreak decimated their homeland vineyards. So you could think of Riojas as Spanish wines with a French flair.
The 2014 Castroviejo “Vinedos Propios” is a Tempranillo-based blend that includes a splash of Graciano, which is used to enhance color and aging potential. It’s another in a long line of Castroviejo success stories.
