The century-old Bodegas Bilbaínas were born with a French heart and were established with a Riojan spirit. Bodegas Bilbaínas is the oldest bottling firm in La Rioja. It is the winery with the largest surface area of underground caves ("calados") in the whole region (3,400 m2). It also has the most extensive area of vineyards in the municipality of Haro. Since the beginning, the winery has been defined by its deep knowledge of the territory and the care in the production of its single-vineyard wines. These are extremely identified with the plots where they came from, hence their names: in 1911 Viña Pomal was created; in 1921, Viña Zaco; in 1923, the white wine Viña Paceta; and the range was extended in 1994 with La Vicalanda reserva, a distinguished and expressive wine that was born from the 9-hectare farm, selected in the vineyard area of Viña Pomal.
Made from 100% Tempranillo, which comes from 17 hectares of certified organic vines located in Haro. Cultivated with maximum respect for the environment, using only natural authorised products for organic winegrowing.
Traditional winemaking process. After destemming and crushing, it ferments in stainless steel deposits, with a maceration of two weeks. Aged for 9 months in American oak barrels (20% new).
Wines with rich flavours and aromas are a good choice when serving meat dishes.
Try with BBQ-marinated pork ribs, beef and vegetable skewers or T bone steaks.
