VinificationFermentation temperature 28 ºc. 26 months in French and American oak barrels. A minimum of 3 years ageing in the bottle. In recent years, we have incorporated new, environmentally-friendly grape growing practices to make our vineyards increasingly sustainable. Among others, we employ precision viticulture to monitor canopy development in different areas within the same plot.
HistoryBodegas Faustino owns about 650 hectares of vineyards in the best areas of the DOCa Rioja, in the municipalities of Laguardia and Oyon, and it is one of the largest owners of vineyards in Rioja. The land of Rioja Alavesa offers exceptional qualities, a chalky-clay soil and an optimum microclimate. Love and respect for nature are two of the pillars on which the philosophy of the winery is based.
Regional InformationLocated between the Ebro River and the imposing rocky mass of the Sierra Cantabria, Rioja Alavesa is smallest sub-region with the highest elevation in the Denomination of Origin Rioja. The Sierra Cantabria protects the area from the cold and humid Northern winds, and the vineyards descend in terraces and ravines that shape this unique microclimate. For centuries the Basque region has been dedicated to vine growing, and the area is known for their use of Spain's native grape Tempranillo.
