STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The wines produced by the fifth generation of the de Simon family from their 65-hectare estate are classic old school traditional Rioja. The wines are all hand-harvested and handmade, just as they were when the winery first went into production in the late 19th century. The original underground 'cellars', carved out of rock at a depth of 10 metres, remain, though today wine is made, aged and bottled in new air-conditioned facilities. Care and attention to detail are paramount. Generous fruit and well-integrated oak, both American and French, give their wines an appealing and distinctive character. This dedication to high standards has generated a warm critical response to the estate's suite of wines, including favourable mention by Decanter magazine. Read more.
