The winery was created by the enthusiastic and talented Roberto Olivan in 2011 in the area of Rioja Alavesa. The highest altitude is 650M and the lowest 450M, hence a diversity in soils and microclimates. The Bodegas is divided in 22 parcels with vines ranging between 15 to 80 years old, all influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Roberto's most important plot is called La Parades sitting at 642M. Roberto farms organically, does his own selection, only gobelet pruning and manages the yields to obtain balance and ripeness. In the cellar, Roberto is pragmatic, only indigenous yeasts are used, no intrants except SO2 at different moments of the vinification and before bottling, pigeage by feet and aging in used French barrels.
