Forward-thinking – marriage between tradition and modernity

Bodegas Altanza sprung to life in 1998 when a group of like-minded local businessmen decided the Rioja wine market needed a shot in the arm.

The estate has gone from strength to strength, concentrating on a search for the perfect balance between traditional values and modern techniques, a philosophy echoed in the architecture of their winery - a stunning example of contemporary design using local raw materials.

Head winemaker Oscar Martinez Hueda now produces a range of wines that cater for all tastes and budgets. Recently, he has converted to exclusive use of French oak barrels in the ageing process, a move which has most certainly enhanced the quality of his wines.

Brambly red berry fruits tinged with marmalade and Moroccan leather. It builds gently to a lovely, dusky dark chocolate-coated finish that maintains freshness and tradition to the very finish.
