Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Since its official designation in 1925, the D.O.Ca. Rioja has always pursued excellence. This culminated in 1991, when the denomination gained the title of ‘qualified’, the highest wine classification in Spain (a title only shared with El Priorat). They are now going a step further and a new geographical indication has appeared: Viñedo Singular. This designation was introduced in 2017 to label wines from very particular grape plots, which meet very specific conditions: average vine age of 35 years, environmentally friendly cultivation, manual harvest and a maximum production of 5000 kg per hectare (for reds) and 6922 kg (for whites).

This is exactly the type of vineyard used to make Villota Tinto, a Rioja wine produced by the Villota winery, in Rioja Alavesa, in the south of the province of Álava, on the north bank of the Ebro river. Villota Tinto is made from the best grapes taken from the different varieties that were planted by Ricardo Pérez Calvet, the grandfather of the generation now running the winery. The altitude of the 113-hectare estate varies between 380 and 420 metres above sea level, and borders the Ebro River for 3 kilometres. The selected grape bunches are harvested by hand and taken to the winery in boxes. There they are fermented separately. After assemblage, Villota Tinto finishes refining for 18 months in fine-grained French oak barrels and concrete tanks.

Villota, which was previously associated with Cvne under the name Viñedos del Contino, has always been a benchmark in premium wines. Now, as part of a new chapter in its history, starring Carmen Pérez Garrigues (the founder’s great-granddaughter), Villota Tinto has been released, an exceptional wine to savour the true soul of Rioja Alavesa.

Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
