About Diez-Caballero Crianza

Diez-Caballero Crianza is a red wine produced by the Diez-Caballero winery in the municipality of Elciego (Álava), D.O.Ca. Rioja.
 

Diez-Caballero is a small family winery with a long tradition in the production of bulk wines, until in 1979 Victoria Cañas, together with her husband, decided to change its focus and start making their wines with the intention of selling them bottled.

Currently heading production are his two sons, Antonio andVictoria Diez-Caballero. To do so they have 25 hectares of vineyard divided into different plots, all distributed around Elciego, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa. The winery perfectly combines all the new technologies into an architecture with many years of history. The result are honest wines that show us all the character of this magnificent area.
 

Diez-Caballero Crianza is a wine made with Tempranillo grapes from the winery’s own vineyards, over 80 years old, located on clay-calcareous soils in the Elciego area.

After harvesting by hand, once in the cellar they ferment in concrete tanks, with a long maceration. This wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for 15 months.
