Bodegas Beronia - that is Rioja focused on the essentials. Beronia wines are defined by the region and the soils in which the vines grow, while the name is inextricably linked to the history of the land. In the 3rd century BC, the area now known as La Rioja was settled by a Celtic tribe called Berones. They founded the towns of Tricio, Varea and Leiva and marked out the boundaries of the Berones region - what is now La Rioja.
Bodegas Beronia - pure Rioja for 45 years
Bodegas Beronia was founded in 1973 by a group of businessmen from the Basque Country who were spending their holidays in La Rioja. The friends shared a passion for food and wine and started their own gastronomy in the area, or "Txoko" as it is known in the region. They decided to produce their own wines to enjoy the local cuisine, specializing in Reserva and Gran Reserva style wines.
The Beronia winery was taken over by the traditional González Byass winery in 1982, giving it the opportunity to reach international markets. Today, Beronia is one of the most renowned Spanish wineries on international and national markets, producing traditional Rioja wines with their own personality and distinctive Beronia style.
Beronia's winery is located in the village of Ollauri, in the heart of Rioja Alta. The surrounding area features a range of different microclimates, cooler or warmer depending on the orientation of the vineyard and protection from winds from the Ebro Valley. The soils for the Beronia vines have a balanced structure of sand, sediments and clay and little organic material, making them ideal for the production of quality wines.
Best grapes from over 850 hectares
The Beronia estate buildings are surrounded by 25 hectares of its own vineyards. In addition, Beronia's technical team has 870 hectares of specially selected vineyards located within a 10 km radius of the winery, preserving the character of Rioja Alta. The average age of these vineyards is 30 years, although 50 hectares are more than 60 years old. For the team, it is clear that the relationship with the more than 200 growers who supply grapes to Beronia is the winery's most important asset. All the grapes used to make Beronia wines are carefully selected by head winemaker Matias Calleja, plot by plot.
