The Artacho family had a deep wine tradition when in 1890 they founded Bodegas Riojanas together with Rafael Carreras. Signs of this tradition are the stone door built in 1799 to provide access to the family vineyards and is now preserved at the entrance to our winery, and very specially the prizes awarded to their wines before that foundation, as the golden of the Universal Exposition in Barcelona in 1888.
Bodegas Riojanas controls more than 300 hectares of vineyard. From the best vineyards in Cenicero, San Vicente de la Sonsierra and nearby towns. The red grape par excellence in Rioja is Tempranillo, but Bodegas Riojanas also has one of the largest areas dedicated to Mazuelo and Graciano within the Denomination, varieties that provide greater personality to their wines.
