Bodegas Manzanos, DOCa Rioja

Winemaking has been a long tradition for the Manzanos family with the first family cellar founded in 1890 by Don Lorenzo Fernandez de Manzanos, the great-great grandfather of Victor and David.

Situated on the plains of the River Ebro in the heart of Rioja, Bodegas Manzanos combines the best traditions of this iconic land with the youthful flair of their young team - Victor and David Fernández de Manzanos and winemaker Borja Ripa.  

More recently, the family has built an impressive new winery that sits alongside their 250ha of vineyards - a rare feat in the otherwise fragmented Rioja countryside. With the utmost respect for the land, the vineyards are worked sustainably and the winery itself was built to minimise the visual impact on the land.

The family cultivates the traditional varietals of Rioja - Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura - and craft wines with a real sense of place and authenticity.

The vines are planted on clay-limestone soil, at an average height of 400m. The extreme climate, wet and cold winters combined with dry hot summers, offer the perfect conditions for the production of great wines.

The wines from Finca Manzanos are fruit-forward, modern interpretations from this classic region. From a citrus laden Blanco to the fruit filled elegance of the Reserva, these wines are fantastic examples of modern Rioja.
