WINES FROM THE SINGLE VILLAGE OF LAPUEBLA DE LABARCA | DOC RIOJA ALAVESA

Vinergia Spanish Wines La Sorda Rioja Alavesa

La Sorda.
Terroir of Rioja Alavesa

Traditionally, the small family wine producers of Rioja Alavesa did not age their wines as they either sold it in bulk or in bottles (often without labels) to day-trippers from the Basque region. 

In recent years, however, this very traditional region within Rioja, the source of most of its top wines, has begun to bottle wines under a specific denomination of origin. La Sorda is a single village project to express the history of this exceptional terroir.

A short introduction video about La Sorda coming soon, in the mean time...

La Sorda, the Place​

The River Ebro is the spine of the Rioja wine region and above Logroño, the left bank is called Rioja Alavesa. squeezed between the river and the Sierra Cantabria mountains, the area is a patchwork of south-facing vineyards at widely differing elevations.

Vineyards and wines

La Sorda uses the traditional Rioja varieties of Tempranillo (principally) plus Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura for the white wine

25 hectares spread over 8 plots in the municipal area of Lapuebla de Labarca, stretching up towards Laguardia with ages ranging from 20 to 80 years old.

The winery was built in 2003, using specially created conical fermentation tanks in order to manage the skins of the grapes. 

Following fermentation, the wines are aged in American oak, except the limited Edition wines which are fermented in oak vats and the aged in French oak barrels.
