Owned and managed by descendents of the founder Don Rafael Lopez de Heredia Y Landeta, the winery continues to make wine in the same manner as it has since its founding in the late 1800's. Maria Jose Lopez de Heredia makes some of what we consider some of the most elegant, complex and balanced wines in Rioja. These are truly a treat and as they age their wines extensively before release they offer up a glass of history as well as enjoyment.
The Viña Bosconia wines are sourced from a vineyard called El Bosque. Situated next to the river Ebro at an altitude of 465m, it is one kilometer away from the winery. Vines are planted on the south-facing foothills of the Sierra Cantabria range, providing them with the perfect conditions for ripening. The soil is a mixture of clay and limestone, and the average age of the vines is 40 years. El Bosque consists of 15 hectares, 11 of which are Tempranillo, 2 are red Garnacho, 1 hectare of Mazuelo and 1 hectare of Graciano.
