Biga Crianza is a red wine from the Rioja region and produced by the Luberri Winery. The winery was founded in 1991 by Florentino Martínez Monje, who came from a family of farmers from Elciego, and his wife.

The climate in Rioja alavesa is continental with a mediterranean influence. During the winter months, cold winds from the north are softened thanks for the Sierra de Cantabria which acts as a natural barrier.

This wine is made solely from Tempranillo (100%) grapes which are taken from vineyards situated 400-600 metres above sea level on poor soils composed of,clay and limestone. This results in a low yield but a high quality. The 29 hectares belonging to Luberri spread through the municipalities of Elciego, Laguardia, La Puebla de Labarca and Villabuena of Alava.

The viticulture that occurs in these vinyards is 100% environmentally friednly. The harvest takes place depending on the ripeness of the grapes, and they are not picked until the correct moment.

As for the production, a traditional method is followed. The process begins with a carbonic maceration, with whole bunches being put into the tanks. Following this, the juice goes through an intracellular fermentation, which  enhances the aromatic intensity range. Finally, the wine is then aged for 12 months in barrels of French and American oak.

Florentino Martínez Monje is the soul and strength of Luberri-Family Monje Amestoy, a man who is passionate about Rioja Alavesa, his small winegrowing country that very few know as well as he does. For more than 20 years, Florentino energetically leads his family winery in Elciego, and he gives us his vision of Rioja Alavesa with pure, modern and honest wines with character. The trajectory of Luberri-Monje Amestoy is already a part of the recent history of Rioja Alavesa, and today their wines represent a unique way of understanding this land.
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.
