Bodegas Juan Alcorta

Bodega Juan Alcorta, the winery, together with Ysios and Azpilicueta, belongs to the Pernod Ricard group. It is named after its founder, Juan Alcorta Maíz, a reputed businessman from San Sebastián who set up the company 50 years ago. Located just outside Logroño and designed by Rioja architect Ignacio Quemada, a pupil of Rafael Moneo, it is a perfect combination of tradition and modern quality standards. Blending in perfectly with the setting as it is built more than 45 metres underground, it attaches great importance to utmost respect for the environment and has won major prizes for its good practices. It currently produces an extensive range of wines that are true to the classic Rioja style. Indeed, it employs a number of traditional vinification processes such as gravity flow and underground premises in its pursuit of the optimal temperature for making and ageing the wines. It is currently equipped with 70,000 barrels and is devoted exclusively to wines classified as Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva. What is more, its wines are produced under the supervision of one of Spain’s most prestigious oenologists: Elena Adell
