STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

After 140 years of production and managed by 4 generations of the López de Heredia family. “Tondonia” is now a byword for exceptional Rioja the world over. Now run by the friendly yet formidable Maria José, one of the keys to their success has been a winemaking philosophy firmly entrenched in traditional methods.
