About This Wine:
Loli Casado is the granddaughter of the winery’s founder, who 75 years ago had a dream of planting grapes and making wine. He passed that passion on to his son, Luis, who subsequently passed it to his daughter, who has raised the winemaking to another level.
Rioja Alavesa is the smallest of the three wine-producing sub-regions in Rioja, Spain. It’s the northernmost of the sub-regions, bordering Rioja Alta to the southwest and Rioja Baja to the southeast. Rioja Alavesa is the closest to the Atlantic Ocean, benefiting from the cooling effects of the Atlantic Ocean.
In 1982, Bodegas Loli Casado introduced its “Jaun de Alzate” label, dedicated to wines made from grapes grown on 45-year-old vines. The 2017 red blend, aged in American oak barrels, provides a delicious taste of the vineyard, the winemaker’s craft, and the estate’s tradition.
