Alonso Lopez de Familia - ()
Since the bodega was founded in 1925, it is the third generation of the family that today enjoys the privilege of displaying their winemaking skills in one of the most privileged locations of La Rioja. La Puebla de Labarca is located in Rioja Alavesa, one of the 3 regions in the appellation, where in principle the very best Rioja wines are produced. It is the northernmost region and has the great advantage that the vineyards are situated quite high benefitting from 3 different climate types. It is mainly an Atlantic climate (cooling and sea breezes that blow the vineyards dry and avoid diseases) but also benefits from a continental and at the same time a Mediterranean climate. All these exceptional circumstances, combined with their unbridled passion for wine, make Alonso-López one of the most prominent family bodegas in the region. From the work in the fields, over the know-how in the cellar to the final wine in the bottle, nothing is left to hazard to transform these ideal conditions into absolute top wines. Their years of experience and perfectionist approach to viticulture result in some gems that are an enrichment not only for Rioja but by extension for the entire Spanish wine list.
