Consejo de la Alta – the history of the winery dates back to 1846.

Consejo de la Alta is a winery located in the famous Rioja region. The history of the winery dates back to 1846 when Don Hipolito Banuelos wrote a manuscript about the treatment, production, and quality of wines to be sold. Don Hipolito left his legacy behind as he was the start of the winery. He provided all the knowledge, innovations, and contributions under which the winery works now. In 1835, Hipolito started working alone, and by 1941, a small group of people started helping him in the vineyards. He set up his cellar for wine production in 1846. He put in a lot of effort, determination, tenacity, and hard work, which helped him discover new blends and wines that were shipped to several countries.
