Wine Maker of the Month

AN UNDERGROUND CELLAR
CARVED BELOW THE VINEYARD

 

Our Wine Maker of the month is the exclusive Viñedos de Páganos.

Exclusive to Perfect Cellar, this winery is located in the medieval village of Laguardia, in the Rioja Alavesa, at 600 meters in altitude, the highest point Rioja is grown in an environment surrounded by dolmens, and ancient medieval churches.

The cellar shares space with the exceptional vineyard called El Puntido, an old word meaning ‘staircase landing’, similar to the shape that this lands forms between the Sierra de Cantabria and the Ebro River depression. Planted in 1975 with Tempranillo vines,  thanks to a limited yield and a careful artisan harvest; the delectable El Puntido wine is produced.

The soils of this estate have a high mineral presence that give the wine a unique mineral character of outstanding personality. Tempranillo is perfectly adapted to these soils, and expresses in it's wines the terroir in which the vineyard is planted.

La Nieta is very near, a small plot of only 1.75 hectares in which the Tempranillo variety is also planted. It has a poorer soil quality than in El Puntido and a totally different microclimate. 

Founded in 1998 by Marcos and Miguel Eguren, the objective of this cellar, carved in the cold rock, in the very depths of the vineyards, is to produce great wines that represent the intrinsic characteristics and personality that the union of climate, soil and grapevine varieties determine.
