Lanzaga is the backbone of our project, the identity, the purest expression of our work in Lanciego. Made only from a selection of the best grapes from our own organic vineyards, Lanzaga brings together all the elements of our way of work; respect of the place, field blend, bush pruning, organic viticulture, always keeping a limited production of human size. The result is a rich and complex expression of the village of Lanciego; a Rioja wine with a true sense of place; a serious and sophisticated wine that ages wonderfully.

 

TERROIR
Located at an altitude of 450 to 650 meters. We find two types of soils, both of continental origin from the tertiary era. Some are developed on sandstone plateaus and are shallow, flat, stony, limy and of silty texture. The others are found on gentle slopes on marls and are moderately deep, less stony, limy and of a very fine texture.

In 2016 we had a benign spring and perfect conditions in the flowering period, resulting in an exceptional fruit set. The vineyards coped well with the heat wave in August and September. Although we were close to a stop of maturation, the last rains rounded off a fantastic harvest, abundant and of very good quality.
