Marques de riscal 150 Anniversary
Marqués de Riscal 150 Aniversario Gran Reserva is a wine which is only made in excellent vintages, originally created to mark the bodega’s 150th anniversary, as well as the history and winemaking traditions of the Rioja Alavesa.
In order to make the wine the mainly tempranillo grapes are harvested from some of the region’s oldest vineyard plots, with a minimum age of 80 years. These are generally venerable, low yielding vines which produce some of the most concentrated and flavoursome fruit of the harvest.
This wine combines modernity and tradition, offering complexity and freshness, power and flexibility; it is undoubtedly the most genuine expression of the Rioja Alavesa.

Riscal 1860 Vino De la TierraKES1,140 – KES2,040
Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level. Throughout its history, Marqués de Riscal has always been an innovating, pioneering cellar and reference in a constantly changing winemaking sector. Thay seek to make wines which are original, fresh, elegant and easy to drink. Since the beginning they have always had a clear vocation for creating the quintessential Spanish wines from Rioja. Barón de Chirel, the first “signature wine”, launched in 1986 was the precursor of the so-called “new era” of Rioja wines. This wine is produced on a very limited scale and only in the best vintage years, in which the character of the vineyard, the soil and the variety are expressed as part of a single, harmonious whole.
