Vina el Pago Tinto
Rioja Alavesa, Spain
Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano and Viura
Azpillaga Urarte are the pioneers of Riojan natural wine, so much so they lecture at the University La Rioja.
Azpillaga Urarte is a family run winery in Lanciago practising biodynamically and operating out of a corrugated tin shed winery. Rustic brilliance. They champion 'regenerative viticulture' which is essentially the restoration of their vineyards using homemade natural treatments.
Biodynamic and restorative viticulture on clay-calcareous soils, Carbonic Maceration for 10-12 days.
Proper salt of the earth Rioja, ripe red and black fruits with a floral lift on the nose, full bodied with juicy sweet tannins. Great balance with a perfect hint of natural winemaking
