The Producer

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta is widely recognised to be one of the finest wineries in the region and known for defining the traditional oak-aged style of Rioja. Founded in 1890 by five families, the descendants are still all important shareholders to this day. There are two grounds on which La Rioja Alta remains firmly traditional  - it only uses American oak, and indeed makes its own barrels, and also releases its wines comparatively late to other producers having aged them in both barrel and bottle and only putting them on the market once they are ready to drink. The 904 marks the date when the Ardanza winery was merged with La Rioja Alta in 1904. A company steeped in history, three of the company’s wines are named after members of the founding families – Alberdi, Ardanza and Arana.
