Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

In 1973, Cvne and the family who own the winery created the first Rioja "chateau". Viñedos del Contino forms a set of vineyards surrounding an old country house, in a curve of the river Ebro. Their wines are made exclusively from the vines planted in their 62 hectares of land, located in Laserna, near Laguardia, in the Rioja Alavesa. Contino Gran Reserva is made from grapes selected from the vineyards surrounding the house, with over 60 years old Tempranillo vines. After being destemmed the grapes ferment in concrete deposits and macerate for 15 to 20 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place in new barrels. The wine is then put into French and American oak barrels where it ages for over two years, followed by three years of ageing in the bottle in the winery's cellars before being released onto the market.

Viñedos del Contino is situated in La Rioja Alavesa, on the banks of the Ebro River. Inspired by the French ‘Châteux´, Burgundian `clos` and Californian ‘single vineyard`, the wines produced here are made only from the plots inside the estate. Viñedos del Contino is currently part of the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE) group.
Pictures and situation Contino
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.
