Back in the day, Felipe Lagunilla was the man who worked hardest to rescue Rioja’s vineyards from the Phylloxera crisis. Made Comendador by the King, he is renowned for leading the Spanish charge to replant vines grafted with American rootstock which were already resistant to Phylloxera. Kudos!
In 1994 we came across Bodegas Lagunilla. The estate was then a corporate orphan owned by the spirits giant Diageo and knew instantly, that we had to adopt it into our family. By doing so we took on the responsibility to keep one of the most traditional bodegas in Rioja Alta, founded in 1885, alive.
It is the home to some of the best Reservas and Crianza this wine region has ever produced. We love reaching new heights and with the traditional Rioja wines from our new family member Bodegas Lagunilla, we seem to have reached the top.
Lagunilla Gran Reserve
After careful fermentation at temperatures not exceeding 28ºC, the wine is kept in vats for a period of 12 months. Then is transferred to oak casks for ageing for a period of around 24 months, depending on the vintage before being transferred to bottle where it continues to age for a further 3 years prior to release.
