Altos Ibéricos Crianza

Reinventing Tradition

Altos Ibéricos takes its name from Alto Otero, a beautiful place where the winery is situated in the town of Labastida, north of the Iberian Peninsula.

This noble wine from the Torres family, made with the tempranillo varietal, is aged for 12 months in oak barrels and for a long time in the bottle.

DOC Rioja

The name of this land comes from the river that crosses this region: the OJA River; hence the name RIOJA.

Evidence of vine cultivation and wine production dates all the way back to the 2nd century B.C.  Later on, the Romans also cultivated the land yet it largely proliferated following the Christian Reconquista. At the beginning of the 20th century, La Rioja did not escape the devastating phylloxera plague that sank many farmers into ruin. After that black epoch, La Rioja re-planted its vineyards and came out ahead.  The culmination of the efforts of the vine growers and wineries throughout all of that time came in 1991 when La Rioja became a Qualified Designation of Origin. Nowadays, most of the vineyards are located at between 300 and 900 metres in altitude. This wine-making region is divided into the Lower La Rioja, the Upper Rioja and La Rioja Alavesa. The latter two enjoy a cooler climate whereas the first has a more Mediterranean climate. La Rioja wines are currently exported all over the world and its red wines have earned many international awards and words of recognition.
