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.

Ratings for the vintages from the D.O. Rioja
La 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.
The word Exopto comes from Latin and means to desire strongly, to hope with great enthusiasm. It was this strong desire and hope which in 2003 led Tom Puyabert to create the winery Exopto in the municipality of Laguardia. His idea was to elaborate a modern-styled wine â with a higher fruit expression and fruit load, with more colour and a finer and subtler adaptation of oak aromas â using the three main grape varieties of La Rioja: Garnacha, Graciano and Tempranillo. The aim was to achieve a perfect balance between tradition and modernity.
