Bodegas Sonsierra | D.O.C. Rioja Alta
Bodegas Sonsierra is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the heart of a region with unique characteristics for vine growing, where Tempranillo finds its perfect environment. In this beautiful terrain watered by the Ebro river and sheltered by the Cantabrian mountains, vine-growing is an ancestral tradition that has shaped the landscape over centuries. It is responsible for making Sonsierra a place of singular beauty, where vineyards cover the land and are complemented by the addition of traditional structures such as wine presses and stone refuges.
The Rioja PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) region, located in northern Spain, comprises more than 60.000 hectares of vineyards that enjoy special properties due to their strategic location between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean sea and the geographical features of the area. In Sonsierra we have a total of 516 hectares of our own vineyards, with near of 1.500 plots, where we grow vines with average ages ranging from 20 to 130 years old. Some of them have belonged to the members of our winery for generations. Our vineyards have a deep, clay-limestone soil in which we only grow Tempranillo Tinto, Tempranillo Blanco and Viura grapes; these native varieties have proved themselves to be the best-adapted to our soil, and over time have flourished to produce wines that are renowned throughout the world.
