Breathing new life into their family’s historic bodega, Señorío de Librares, sisters Clara and Patricia Espinosa are building a reputation for their artisanal, organic Riojas that are unrivalled in flavour and price.

The Espinosas have cultivated top-quality fruit in Rioja Baja for over 150 years – the sisters’ great-great-grandfather Pedro won first prize for his wines at the 1878 Paris World Fair.

In contrast to the region’s big brands, Clara and Patricia eschew the use of international varieties and bought-in fruit, farming 10ha of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha, and Viura around the town of El Villar de Arnedo. Harnessing organic viticulture and a traditional-meets-modern approach to winemaking, they craft characterful wines that excel in value.

A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Graciano from 40-year-old vines. Fermented in new oak (50% American and 50% French) and then aged for 4-5 months in 2-year-old barrels. Bright and fruit-forward but distinctly Rioja in character – plush and silky.
