Desperately Seeking Soil

Though the much repeated mantra of "good wine is made in the vineyard" is undermined by the extraordinary amounts spent on winemaking equipment, it is true to say that without good grapes, good wine will always be elusive.

 

The history of Rioja is that of a region where winemaking has been dislocated from viticulture and it is only more recently, where smaller growers have turned into wine producers, that this model has started to change.

 

deAlto recognised that to pursue our vision for Rioja, a new focus on vineyard selection and partnership with growers had to be sought.

 

We were very lucky that the Manzanos family shared our ideals and through that relationship, we have access to over 250 hectares of prime Rioja vineyards from which we select only the best for deAlto.
