Here at Wine Time and EWGA, we are huge fans of Rioja; the people, the region and the gastronomy but

particularly the wine! We currently import from no less than five Bodegas:

 

BODEGAS EGUREN UGARTE | Laguardia

BODEGAS EGUREN UGARTE | Laguardia

 
This is a medium-sized, family-owned Bodega established in 1870. The main man here is Vitorino Ugarte, who despite being well into his eighties continues not only to run the Bodega but also to innovate. He planned & oversaw the move to their spectacular Bodega in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria some 30 years ago. They have 130ha of vineyards all in the Rioja Alavesa.
 

 

 
BODEGAS MARQUES DE MURRIETA | Logroño

BODEGAS MARQUES DE MURRIETA | Logroño

 
Murrieta is a veritable Rioja Royalty! The Estate carries a royal title making the present incumbent, Vicente Dalmau Cebrián-Sagarriga, the Count of Creixel! It is one of the oldest Estates in Rioja, established in 1852 and undoubtedly one of the finest. It is notable for only producing Reserva and Gran Reserva wines and is credited with reinventing the style of Rioja following the influx of Bordelaise looking to ‘escape’ from Phylloxera. The quality here is beyond reproach and the attention to detail is fanatical.
 
 
BODEGAS VALLEMAYOR | Fuenmayor

BODEGAS VALLEMAYOR | Fuenmayor

 

This medium-sized, family-owned Bodega in Fuenmayor in the Rioja Alta is run by the extremely affable Rafa Pérez-Foncea along-side his cousin Pablo. The family has a winemaking heritage going back to the 19th Century, but it wasn’t until as recently as 1984 that they started to bottle their own wine. They own 70ha of well-situated, mature vineyards across 7 separate locations, with a further 60ha on long-term contracts.

BODEGAS RIOJA SANTIAGO | Haro

BODEGAS RIOJA SANTIAGO | Haro

 
Although somewhat under the radar, Rioja Santiago, named in honour of those taking the pilgrim’s trail to Santiago di Compostella, is actually the oldest Bodega in Haro, established back in 1870. It was purchased in 2019 by Bodegas la Rioja Alta, its more illustrious neighbour in Haro’s fabled Barrio de la Estacion (station district). We are still waiting to see what plans unfold under the new management, but for the time being, the style here is traditional with an 80/20 Tempranillo / Garnacha blend aged in seasoned American oak the norm.

BODEGAS LUIS GURPEQUI MUGA | Azagra

BODEGAS LUIS GURPEQUI MUGA | Azagra

 

This winery is actually in neighbouring Navarra, but also owns 15 individual vineyards in Rioja from Haro to Logroño, and even more in Navarra itself! We are just dipping our toe in the water with them currently. Established early in the 20th Century, this Bodega was acquired by the Manzanos wine group in 2016.
