Rioja VegaTheir best wines

Vinos de España - Rioja

The origins of this bodega precede the establishment of the Denominación de Origen guarantee of quality, and have thus enabled it to preserve the word Rioja in its trademark. Rioja Vega is today one of the few wine cellars whose winemaking tradition dates back to the dawn of wine culture in this outstanding region. Those were the years when the French maestros, fleeing from the phylloxera that ravaged the vineyards in their country, chose these lands.They knew that proximity to the Ebro, its poor soils and its fine climate would produce an exceptional wine.


During those years, Felipe Ugalde, who later joined forces with the Muerza family, was able to take full advantage of the knowledge of these pioneers and later, pass it on to his heirs. More than 125 years have gone by since then and, by continuing with the same attitude, they have steadily gained wisdom, experience and knowledge by adapting to technological advances and carrying out research in order to be able to offer the wide range of quality wines we have today.

          Made from selected grapes grown in the bodega's 70 hectares of vineyard near Mendavia in the Rioja Baja where soils are calcareous over limestone and the vines are planted at high density to get more grapes, but smaller ones for maximum flavour.
