We have received our annual allotment of R. Lopez de Heredia wines for the year (and the allocations keep getting smaller and smaller as world wide demand far outstrips supply). One of our very favourite houses anywhere, there are very few wineries in Spain… in the world for that matter, whose name conjures up the heritage, prestige and adherence to old world wine-making quite like R. López de Heredia. Little about this winery has changed in the 140 years since it’s founding by Don Rafael López de Heredia founded it in 1877. The family adheres to a winemaking doctrine blueprinted in the 1880’s – to make wine only from their own vineyards.

Located in the historic town of Haro, Heredia was the first to establish their winery next to the train station (for easy access to transporting their wines abroad). This area is known as ‘Station District’, there are seven famous wineries that make up this Golden Mile of Rioja. Renown for holding their Rioja wines till they think it is ready, we are pleased to offer the 2007 Cubillo Crianza, 2004 Tondonia Reserva in 750mL and in magnums as well as the 2005 Bosconia Reserva, all classic wines that are especially well priced given their high quality. Unfortunately, no Gravonia white this year.

Quantities are extremely limited so get yours sooner than later. Pictured left to right:

2007 Lopez de Heredia Vina Cubillo Crianza (Rioja, Spain) – $39.99

2004 Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Reserva (Rioja, Spain) – $64.99
