Finca San Martin
Concepts forged since 1995, when La Rioja Alta, S.A. led this exciting project with the aim of making an excellent quality wine incorporating all the personality of the best vine plots in the prestigious Rioja Alavesa area. A unique location that they were convinced provided clear potential for making a great modern wine, capable of transmitting – as with the great “chateaux” – the exclusive characteristics of a privileged estate. Since then, and always focussed on the continual improvement in their wine, they have made important changes to their vineyards and winery. But it has been in recent years, more specifically since 2005, that we started to pay very special attention to the different plots that make up the estate, and the separate production and maturing of each sub-plot, evaluating the soil and determining where the best quality grapes grow, only then collecting harvests that meet the quality standards for an important international wine. This is how they made their Martelo, Torre de Oña, Finca San Martín and Club de Cosecheros (Harvester’s Club) wines.
