Bodegas Riojanas controls more than 100 hectares. From the best vineyards in Cenicero, San Vicente de la Sonsierra and nearby towns. The quintessential grape in Rioja is Tempranillo, but Bodegas Riojanas also has one of the largest areas dedicated to Mazuelo and Graciano within the denomination, varieties that provide greater personality to their wines.
The different plots of vineyards are situated on clay-limestone of Miocene origin, soils suitable for producing the highest quality.
