Characteristics Viña Bosconia Reserva

Viña Bosconia is a red wine produced by the Viña Tondonia winery in the D.O. La Rioja. The winery is situated in Haro (Rioja Alta), one of the most prestigious and privileged areas for the cultivation of vines in Spain. Viña Tondonia is a historic winery, the first in Haro and the third in la Rioja. The quality of their wines is a true testament to their 137 history.

 

The wine is a blend of four different grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacho, Mazuelo and Graciano. The grapes used to produce this wine come from the Finca El Bosque. The estate is around 40 years old and is situated on the banks of the river Ebro, 1 km from the winery, home to calcareous-clay soils. The vineyards are planted on southward facing slopes, exposed to long hours of sunshine which is ideal for the correct ripening of the grapes. The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes taken to the winery in traditional 100kg poplar wooden boxes.

 

Fermentation is carried out with the skins in large oak vats, using native yeasts from the winery itself. Viña Bosconia is aged for 5 years in American oak barrels which are constructed by the wineries own cooper. 2 rackings are carried out annually during this time.

 

Before being bottled, Viña Bosconia is clarified using fresh eggs from local farms.

 

This is a classic Riojan wine. Elegant, with good body, layer and structure.

In La Rioja there are large wineries and also great wineries. A handful of them are century-old, some are very well-known, some are actually quite small. We must not forget family-run wineries and the abundant harvester's wineries or "cosecheros". Viña Tondonia is many of those things, besides being a winery that has been run by the same family since its origins. Through four generations and despite the continuous and tempting offers of multinationals, for a hundred years, R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia is still a single-family winery. Here, the four generations that have directed it have continued with the philosophy and the social and work principles set by its founder more than 139 years ago.
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.
