Beronia was founded in 1973 by a gastronomic society whose great love of food and wine attracted them to the idea of producing their own Rioja, in the purest most traditional Rioja style.

Vinification Notes

The main feature of the year’s weather was a very varied winter in terms of temperature and rainfall, with very short spells when intense cold and lots of fog combined with hot, rainy days. The end of the vegetative growth cycle was marked by the night-time temperatures dropping significantly, which meant that the grapes ripened slowly. The resulting high diurnal variation produced good alcohol levels and much improved phenolic maturation. The harvest was orderly and staggered across the different sub-areas. It began in the first few days of September in the earlier areas, with the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes being picked first and the Graciano and Mazuelo last.
