Established in the Rioja Oriental sub-zone of Rioja, deAlto is an unconventional producer of brilliant wines that aim to maximise the fruit potential of the regions they come from.
Responding to the need for a more sustainable future, they harness the best vineyards to produce pure Rioja as well as using that same spirit of adventure, experimentation, creativity and commitment to sustainable wine production deAlto Rioja y Más embraces a family of wines from across the country. Drawing on the revered, in-depth knowledge of Paul Shinnie and the technical skills of Marta Juega Rivera, the wines of Aurkitu, Campo Flores and Te Quiero offer a tantalising taste of contemporary Spain.
Working with farmers in Cuenca who grow grapes much as they have done for centuries, cultivating old bush vines on sandy chalk soils, in a hot dry climate they have never used, nor needed chemicals.
We select low yielding vineyards and ripe fruit to create a wine suitable for any occasion. The vineyards are closely monitored so grapes are picked at their best and the state of the art winery is well equipped with the most modern winemaking machinery to create fantastic wines. Stainless steel tanks for fermentation.
