Luis Valentín and Carmen Enciso are setting a new benchmark for modern Rioja. They began their boutique operation 1998 with a focus on small production, old vines and a more gentle winemaking philosophy. Their results over a short period of time have been outstanding and seen them become lauded as one of the premier small-scale producers of the region. Their Rioja Riserva is their most notable wine. It comes from a multitude of plots around Haro, farmed with integrity, with the youngest vine selected planted over 60 years ago. The wine is fermented in concrete then aged in top quality, low toast French oak allowing their glorious old-vine fruit to shine. This is everything a Rioja Riserva should be - powerful and yet poised, robust and yet not rambunctious. It's a wine of immense stature and will mature beautifully for many years to come.
