Milenrama DoCa Rioja

17 June, 2016
Origin

Milenrama means yarrow flower. So this is a tribute to this flower that grows on the banks of the multitude of paths wandering by La Rioja vineyards. It is a white, simple, lovely flower. A flower growing up all year next to the vineyard and beautify the surroundings. And so these wines: fine and elegant, not to overwhelm the palate but to stay with.

A complete range of wines from Rioja, showing the fruity character of Tempranillo with a careful winemaking.

Region

A distinctly Mediterranean climate, with four seasons: a cold and dry winter, a rainy spring, hot summer but cool nights, and finally a dry autumn in which, a soft October leads to a cold November.

Thanks to the influence of the high mountains the dry atmosphere maintains a healthy plant.

The undulating landscape shapes hills and valleys and so many microclimates enhancing all the shades of Tempranillo.

Winery

The winery founded in the sixties has evolved and modernized in different stages to include modern technology, that allow us to improve the quality of our wines but mostly to help us better express our terroir.
