Bodegas Beronia is quintessentially Rioja. Its wines are defined by the region and the soils in which the vines are grown, and its name linked to the history of the land where the winery is found. In the 3rd Century BC the area known as Rioja today was inhabited by a celtic tribe called the ‘Berones’. They inhabited the towns of Tricio, Varea and Leiva, marking the limits of the Berones region, today La Rioja. The founding ethos of Beronia is strongly allied to the origins of La Rioja.
Beronia produces wine from almost 900 hectares of vineyards in prime Rioja Alta sites surrounding the winery The average age of these vines is 30 years, but a 50 hectares of more than 60 year old vines give superb intensity and richness of fruit character.
Rioja is characterised by hundreds of small, individually owned vineyard parcels. The long standing relationships between the winery and growers is nurtured to ensure that only the very best quality fruit is supplied. Beronia’s winemaker, Matias Calleja, personally supervises the vineyards throughout the year, and carefully selects the best vineyard plots for each of his wines.
