The El Coto de Rioja winery have more than 700ha of vineyards, one of the largest cellars of La Rioja in this sense.
El Coto Blanco is a varietal Viura. The grapes come from vineyards grown in the Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta, two of the three sub-areas that divides the DO Rioja.
For processing the grapes, once they have reached the winery, they are protected from oxidation by a curtain of carbonic gas.
Subsequently, a press takes place in pneumatic presses and racking and cleaning of musts at low temperatures is performed. With these clean musts, fermentation takes place at a low temperature in the presence of selected yeasts.
