The bodega is located in Haro. Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta, who returned to his homeland from France, started building the bodega that became a “cathedral to wine” with vaulted underground corridors, staircases, and long underground cellars descending to a depth of 15 meters.
72 oak vats are used for vinification and 12,900 Bordeaux oak barrels for aging. The wines produced here are the most classic among the classic Rioja. Everything is made in a very traditional way.
If you admire the modern architecture, you will be drawn here to see the work of Zaha Hadid, who created an external pavilion for the winery. It was erected to mark the 125th anniversary of the bodega and is used as a visitor’s center at this time.

Visiting European Wineries
Where to taste wines in the center of Bordeaux? Here is the list of my favourite wine bars in Bordeaux.
June is a great time to visit Bordeaux wine country. Everything is fresh and bright. You will see flowering vineyards, wine bottling, racking and other winery activities.
