R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia

If there is any winery that embodies the purest concept of classic Rioja wine it has to be R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia. It is unique in the world with its matchless winemaking methods that are resistant to trends. To start off with, R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia is wholly family owned and has been run by four successive generations of the López de Heredia family ever since it was established by Rafael López de Heredia in Haro back in 1877, and it is the oldest winery in this municipality hailed as the capital of Rioja Alta and the heart of Rioja wine. Its impressive cathedral-like facilities are located in the famous station district of Haro and are equipped with underground cellars where its fine, long-lasting wines that embody the essence of classic Rioja slumber for years.

The three López de Heredia Montoya siblings (María José, Mercedes and Julio) are currently at the helm of this firm which remains true (with minor adjustments) to its original philosophy. They define themselves as grape growers (the grapes come from their own vineyards, where they focus on natural methods and minimal intervention) and above all as winemaking artisans.
