Bodegas Urbina Winery, More Than 150 Years of Winemaking Experience
Bodegas Urbina Winery has a history dating back over 150 years in winemaking. The family estate is located in the Cuzcrrita del Rio Tiron that exports around 80% of its production to countries worldwide. Salvador Urbina, the founder, moved to Cuzcurrita in 1870 and made the first wines using the vineyards that still exist till today. The winemaking profession was continued by his sons Paquita and Ciriaco. Currently, the fourth generation of the family runs the winery, including Salvador, Jesus Angel, and Pedro’s grandsons.
All workers of Bodegas Urbina Winery have vast experience in winemaking, and their current space is equipped with modern equipment, including stainless steel tanks for fermentation.
Sustainable Viticulture at the Winery
The winery’s vineyards are located in the Rioja Alta and the Valle del Angel Singular vineyard areas. Only organic and sustainable viticulture practices are used here to maintain the structure and richness of their vines and protect the surrounding nature. The soil and microclimate are also perfect for the growth of ripe grapes. The traditional methods are used with minimal use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Bodegas Urbina and its Exceptional High-Quality Wines
The main grape varieties grown at the winery are Tempranillo and Viura. The best grapes are handpicked and used to make their red, white, rosé, and sparkling wines. During the winemaking, native yeasts give the wines a unique complexity and fruit-driven essence that showcases their region’s great qualities. All the grapes are sourced from their own vineyards, and they do not buy or sell any grapes.
