Characteristics of Viña Tondonia Blanco Gran Reserva

Viña Tondonia Blanco Gran Reserva is a white wine produced by the Viña Tondonia winery in the D.O.Ca Rioja. The winery is situated in Haro (Rioja Alta), one of the most prestigious and privileged areas for the cultivation of vines in Spain. Viña Tondonia is a historic winery, the first in Haro and the third in la Rioja. The quality of their wines is a true testament to their 137 history.

This wine is a blend the two typical white riojan varieties different grape varieties: Viura and Malvasía. The grapes come from the majestic Viña Tondonia estate. The well-known Riojan estate spans across 100 hectares and borders the river Ebro as it passes through Haro, and is crowned by the Tondonia castle.

The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes moved to the winery in 100kg poplar wooden boxes, the traditional way. The grapes ferment without the stems of skins in 60hl oak vats using native yeasts from the vineyards for 7 days at temperatures no higher than 36ºC.

Viña Tondonia Blanco Gran Reserva is then aged for 10 years in American oak barrels, racked annually. López de Heredia is one of the few wineries that continues to produce their barrels using their own cooper. The barrels rest in the silence of the cellar, dug into the rock, at a constant temperature of 12ºC throughout the year.

Once the wine has been aged, Viña Tondonia Blanco Gran Reserva is clarified with fresh eggs before being bottled. The wine then rests for a further 9 years in the depths of the winery before being placed onto the market.

Viña Tondonia is a very special Riojan white wine, aged for 20 years it is practically a museum piece. This is truly a little piece of history from this historic winery. Despite its great age, it is a wine that will continue to evolve.

In La Rioja there are large wineries and also great wineries. A handful of them are century-old, some are very well-known, some are actually quite small. We must not forget family-run wineries and the abundant harvester's wineries or "cosecheros". Viña Tondonia is many of those things, besides being a winery that has been run by the same family since its origins. Through four generations and despite the continuous and tempting offers of multinationals, for a hundred years, R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia is still a single-family winery. Here, the four generations that have directed it have continued with the philosophy and the social and work principles set by its founder more than 139 years ago.
