Malpuesto is a red wine produced by the Orben winery La Rioja, at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria.

The Orben winery belongs to the Izadi Group, a group of well-known wineries in Ribera del Duero, Vetus or Toro. Malpuesto is a single varietal Tempranillo from the Malpuesto Finca, the Finca vineyard was planted in 1931 and today is one of the oldest vineyards of La Rioja Alavesa. The name, Malpuesto, comes from the irregular arrangement in which the strains were planted. The farm is located on a hillside and has an area of 1.2 hectares. The soil is sandy and poor, resulting in a low yield yet with high quality. The harvest is done manually in small boxes of 15 kg. Once in the winery, the grapes undergo a strict selection before being placed in vats. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature and a very gentle pressing is applied before the wine undergoes aging in barrels for about 15 months. Malpuesto is a red wine with character, from a very special old vineyard with a limited production of just over 5,000 bottles.

Orben is one of those wineries that, in the middle of the first decade of the new millennium, initiated the birth of the new modern line of La Rioja wines, applying a formula that gives priority to viticulture, terroir and the vineyard, where the selection of the grapes is the true main player in the character of their wines. Old vineyards of low yield and an oenology bases on the quality of the fruit, along with a careful selection of oaks from the best couperages and an ageing made to measure, have been the best letters of presentation of the wines from Orben from the very beginning.
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.
