Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Artadi has had clear objectives since it was set up in 1985: to produce wines that are a direct reflection of the terroir. This philosophy shuns the industrial way of doing things to faithfully commit to the close relationship between man and vineyard. This is why this winery, started by a group of local winegrowers, decided to disassociate itself from the Rioja Regulatory Council. To do this, the man in charge, Juan Carlos López de Lacalle, moved away from large productions to focus on distinctiveness and craftsmanship.

Faithful to this commitment to the terroir, Artadi’s single-plot wines were born. These wines are made with Tempranillo grapes from specific estates with unique clay-limestone soils. This is the case of Artadi Quintanilla, a wine that takes its name from the ancient medieval village that was located where the 1.10 hectare vineyard now stands. These vines are organically cultivated without the use of chemical products that could damage the natural balance of the terroir.  Once the grapes have been manually harvested, they are taken to the winery where they are vinified in open tanks with cold maceration for 24-48 hours and fermentation for 10-12 days. Malolactic fermentation then takes place in barrels and the wine ages for 12 months in 225-litre French oak barrels.

The result of this work is Artadi Quintanilla, a single-plot wine which, as the wine critic Jancis Robinson himself points out in the well-known Oxford Companion to Wine, “is the result of a struggle against the disturbing standardisation of wine in the world”.

Bodegas Artadi was founded in Laguardia back in 1985 as the´Cooperative Cosecheros Alaveses’', led by Juan Carlos Lopez de Lacalle. It was an association of a group of growers that wanted to collaborate on a business project based on the viticultural wealth of the La Rioja Alavesa region. They wanted the opportunity to prove that the use of carbonic maceration could also produce great wines, and this they did. 
Artadi has a history linked to the memory and stories of the people who helped found the winery and make what it is today. Outside of the busy and overcrowded industry , Artadi is based on passion and respect for the land and vineyards.
