I have many fond memories of visiting this traditional family run bodega - from the car breaking down, through to being snowed in! Despite these memorable catastophes, what I remember the most is their wine!. This Single Estate is situated in Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón, on the north-western edge of DOC Rioja. It is an area that produces wines with a great capacity for aging, and is therefore excellent for the production of great winesRead More
Bodegas Benito Urbina, a family-owned, Single Estate winery, has 75 hectares of vineyards, 65 of Tempranillo, and 10 of Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura.
Four generations of the family have dedicated themselves to the cultivation of their vineyards and the production of wine. In 1975 the bodega began to age and bottle their own wine in order to retain the special characteristics of a small single Estate. Their sole objective, the production of quality wines, has been achieved as the result of careful viticulture using traditional techniques, harvesting by hand and avoiding the use of weed killers and pesticides.
