For almost half a century, Bodegas Montebuena has been putting its extensive knowledge and experience into making quality wines. Montebuena continues this tradition today thanks to what is considered one of the best vineyards in Rioja Alavesa. Located in the south east of the village of Labastida and covering more than 160 hectares, the size and quality of the Montebuena vineyards allows the winery to exercise complete control over their production from the vine to the bottle. But what truly sets Montebuena apart is its unique position where the river Ebro is closest to the Sierra Cantabria mountains, creating a blend of Mediterranean and Continental climates that prevents an excess of rain and extreme cold. In addition, the shallow, calcareous soil limits the yield of the harvest and the size of the grapes while increasing the volume of the skin, resulting in deeper colour and greater concentration of flavor.
