D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Bodegas Exeo is an initiative carried out by Fidel Fernández Gibaja, followed by his sons Carlos, Fidel and his grandson Guillermo. Located in Labastida, the heart of Rioja Alavesa, it is only the continuity of a heritage of winegrowers that seeks to show the landscape, their vineyards and a way of working in their wines. A way of doing things that is committed to the quality of the grape and respect for the vineyard and its environment.
Bodegas Exeo has 24 hectares of its own vineyards, some of which are over 100 years old, all located in Labastida, protected by the Sierra Toloño mountain range. The entire vineyard is cultivated with the utmost respect for the soil structures and the identity of each variety, transmitting in each bottle all the character of this terroir clearly marked by the Atlantic climate.
Cifras is a red wine made with Red Grenache from an old vineyard, Viña Espílver, located on the foothills of Sierra Toloño. The soil is clayey and the lands are very steep.
The harvest is carried out manually and placed in small boxes. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes ferment in concrete deposits with their lees and their corresponding batonnages. Then, the wine is aged for 12 months in egg-shaped deposits.
