This Friday Hector "The Selector" and the boys pick some incredible Spanish wines, and we are proud to feature the awsome Rioja's from Bodegas Riojanas, one of the jewels of this region (more below). We will be pouring their great Reservas and Gran Reservas. These are deep, complex, highly-rated and truly-deserving-of-their-great-reputation wines that you will never forget once you've tried them. Of course we will also pour some new arrivals, like the new Muga.... FROM THE WINERY: Bodegas Riojanas treasures more than a century of winemaking tradition in its Cenicero winery. Its corners are steeped in history and talk of the passion for ageing wines that has always permeated it. This tradition and passion have been transmitted to the team that runs Bodegas Riojanas today. Its most precious legacy is its commitment to quality and the personality of its wines. The winery is located 20km from Cenicero, in San vicente de la Sonsierra, a town on the left bank of the River Ebro, in Rioja Alta. Bodegas Riojanas controls more than 300 hectares of the best vineyards in Cenicero, San Vincete de la Sonsierra and nerby municipalities. Rioja's quintessential grape variety is Tempranillo, but Bodegas Riojanas also owns one of the largest surface areas dedicated to Mazuelo and Graciano in the region. These grape varieties bring more personality to the wines produced. The Cenicero winery was built taking advantage of the broad slope of the land. The original building has undergone eight expansions. From an initial capacity to 500 barrels, 22 vats and 50,000 bottles, the facilities have grown to almost 26,000 barrels and 4.5 million bottles. The current processing capacity is over 3 million kg's of grapes each harvest. Throughout its more than 100 years of history, the winemaking systems have evolved significantly. The most advanced winemaking techniques have been introduced allowing the company to adapt to the current market trends.
