Bodegas Ruiz de Vinaspre was founded in 1910 by the grandfather of the current owner.
It was located in the centre of Elvillar, parallel to the main square. Wine was produced in that winery until 1978 when another winery was built, at the entrance of the town, where the current portfolio of wines are produced by the current owner and his father.
The excellent clay-calcareous soil of Rioja Alavesa together with its optimal microclimate provides the right conditions to grow the most esteemed varieties of wines.
Hand-harvested from vines up to 40 years old. Whole wine aged in 2nd and 3rd use oak barriques for 12 months total.
The time spent in oak barrels has given this wine its toasty richness of oak.
