In 1890, La Rioja Alta SA was founded by five families sharing a common passion for wine. It was the start of an ongoing quest for excellence that their descendants still pursue. Since then we have managed to extract the best from the marriage of our tradition in wine ageing, to state-of-the-art technology in grape fermentation. Our wines (Viña Ardanza, Gran Reserva 904, etc.) have become an international reference for the finest Rioja wines.

We had a fantastic wine tour at La Rioja Alta today. Very professional guide, excellent english skills and very good knowledge of wine production and the winery itself. A very special treat at a winery that represents my favourite wines from Rioja - Ardanza, the 890 and the 904.

We simply loved Bodega La Rioja Alta. The first impression was the immaculate, tasteful gardens. The tasting shop brings a smile to your face with their knick knacks, the openness and the wine stacked high. We also really enjoyed quality wine. But most of all, the woman presenting the wine was warm, funny, intersting and engaging. I would encourage you... More

The delightful Bella (our guide) was incredibly engaging and took us through the entire winery, explaining the entire wine making process from the making of the barrels to maturation process to the final bottling. My friends and I have been on a number of vineyard visits before and would say that La Rioja Alta has got to be one of... More

We so enjoyed our wine tasting and experience here. Belarmina was so fabulous, kind, friendly and knowledgeable and made our visit so enjoyable. We did not do a tour but sitting on the patio, drinking such delectable wines in such a beautiful environment was a great Rioja experience. Highly recommended!

A very informative and interesting tour around the bodega with an excellent guide. The sights and aromas we encountered were fantastic but nothing compared to the tasting afterwards. We were also recommended a very good place for lunch in nearby Casalarreina (La Vieja Bodega)

The tour of the bodega, lead by a fantastic guide named Bella, was most informative and enjoyable. Not only does the bodega produce delicious wine, but the process and quality of materials used is top notch. We completed our tour with a tasting of 4 wines, at least 2 of which were gran reservas. The bodega was generous and hospitable... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to taste a wide range of wines (at a reasonable price) and fell in love with several of the reds, as well as the beautiful bodega.
