Rioja Vega celebrates its 130th anniversay with a new wine

130 years of history are a good reason to celebrate, and Rioja Vega does it with the launch of a new wine to commemorate such a remarkable date: Rioja Vega 130 Aniversario.

Rioja Vega 130 Aniversario a new wine from our vineyards in the D.O.Ca. Rioja, celebrates the 130 years of history of our Rioja estate. It was founded in 1882, long before the creation of the Denomination of Origin which has allowed us to keep the word Rioja in pour brand name. Today, it is one of the few cellars whose winemaking tradition dates back to the dawn of wine culture in this privileged region. This has been possible by its ability to adapt to the changing times without losing its true Rioja essence and tradition.

Rioja Vega 130 Aniversario’s vineyards are two: The first one is over 60 years of age, located in the property; the second one is over 50 years of age, located on a hillside of Sierra de Cantabria. Everything about these vineyards is special, from their location and orientation, through to the careful work performed to achieve the highest quality year after year.

As its creator, winemaker Esperanza Elías, expresses, Rioja vega 130 Aniverario “marks its own time; with this wine time gains a new dimension, one more intimate in which rush is cast aside and dreaming is allowed. Rioja Vega 130 Aniversario is purely terroir in a bottle; a unique gift from the vineyards of La Rioja”.

After a two-year ageing in new American oak barrels, followed by al least 18 months in the bottle, Rioja Vega 130 Aniversario has a deep dark cherry-red colour, clean and bright. The nose displays a wide array of aromas: very ripe fruit, chocolate, liquor, jam, applesauce, toast bread, coconut toast aromas, cedar wood. On the palate it is round, velvety, fleshy and smooth. Balanced and long.

Rioja Vega has become a bench mark of the ideal combination between the classicism of one of the best winemaking regions in Spain, and the avant-garde ideas that have taken our wines so far over these 130 years since its foundation.
