Characteristics of Dominio del Viento
Dominio del Viento is a dry red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by the Exopto winery. This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties: Tempranillo and Graciano.
The grapes used for the wine come from the winery’s own vineyards that are between 20-30 years old. The harvest process is carried out manually, and only when the grapes have reached their optimum point of maturation. This way, the winery ensures that the grapes arrive at the winery in the best possible conditions.
Dominio del Viento firstly undergoes fermentation in stainless steel tanks at fixed temperatures of 26º. Following this, the grapes are macerated for two weeks. The winemaking process then finishes with the wine ageing in oak barrels for one year. Before being placed onto the market, the wine also rests for another 6 months in the bottle.
Exopto derives from the latin to “desire greatly”, and with this name, the winery wanted to show that their wines are not just any wine. It is jokingly said that Exopto wines are half French half Riojan, since Tom Puyaubert, founder of the company, is French, but has adopted Rioja as his home.

Bodegas Exopto is the project of a Frenchman from Bordeaux, Tom Puyaubert, a barrel seller passionate of La Rioja, its vineyards and its culture. The main idea of his project is based on making different wines within the historic context of Rioja: wines with more colour and freshness, with better expression of the fruit, and with a finer adaptation of the oak. It is the perfect evidence of a complex balance between modernity and tradition, where the balanced assemblages of the traditional red varieties of Rioja, Tempranillo, Graciano and Grenache, comprise the expression of his wines.
