At The Foot of Sierra de Cantabria

Vivanco Winery is located in Briones, a privileged enclave in La Rioja Alta, on the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria and the banks of the River Ebro. It is an area with a mild microclimate and extraordinary chalky-clay soils.

Vivanco Winery: Beautifully Located in Rioja Alta

Around the winery there is the Finca El Cantillo, whose name comes from the large number of boulders found on the ground. Tempranillo is the fundamental variety, but not the only one. In this vineyard there are also other grape varieties they use in their wines: Graciano, Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura, Malvasía, etc.

Always Looking for Innovation

The underground winery is functionally and aesthetically pleasing. It was built underground to remove as little as possible of the vineyard surface area and to minimize the environmental impact in favour of preserving the landscape. By building the winery underground, was also achieved the right temperature and moisture —naturally balanced throughout the year— essential for properly preserving and ageing wine in oak barrels or vats.

All their grapes are picked by hand and placed in small tubs or crates to prevent the berries from breaking and ensure remain whole

The viticultural and pioneering spirit of Rafael Vivanco is reflected both in his wines and in the experiments and research he carries out with different growing and winemaking methods, in the use of minority grape varieties and in wood ageing in oak from different provenances.
