Bodega Eduardo Garrido Garcia, a Winery from the Prestigious Rioja Alta Region
Bodega Eduardo Garrido Garcia Winery is located in Rioja Alta in Abalos, with more than 500 years of history in winemaking. Situated on the slopes of Sierra de Cantabria, Abalos rests almost 600 meters above the sea level and is one of the privileged winegrowing regions of Rioja Alta. Winemaker Vicente Garrido, the grandfather of the owner, presented the first vintage in April 1923. He passed on his winemaking knowledge to his son, Eduardo Garrido, and now Amelia Garrido, along with her father, runs the winery. The family is now in its third generation and continues its history and tradition of winemaking.
Bodega Eduardo Garrido Garcia is a boutique winery with around 100 oak barrels and an exhibition of antique objects related to wine and life in Rioja about 100 years ago.
The Winery with Unique Climate and Perfect Terroir
The winery’s vineyards are located in some of the best areas of the region. The local clay-based soil is rich in minerals that grow some of the best grapes in the region. The Atlantic winds blow across this region, and the resulting microclimate is perfect for vines’ cultivation. It helps to grow ripe grapes with elegant fruit and bold structure for the creation of distinct wines.
Both French and American Oak Barrels for Rioja Wines
The main grapes grown in their vineyards include Tempranillo, Viura, Garnacha, Mozuelo, and Graciano. The best grapes are handpicked and used to produce high-quality red and white wines. Aging in French and American oak barrels allows the wines to express their full flavors and complexity that show the features of the Rioja Alta land.
