product Details

La Rioja Alta 1904 37.5cl

In 1890, 5 families from the north of Spain, each passionate about wines, established the Sociedad Vinícola de La Rioja Alta - The Wine Society of the Rioja Alta.  A few years later, in 1904, one of these founding-members proposed the merger of his Ardanza winery with the society and thus the creation of La Rioja Alta S.A.

This 37.5cl (half-bottle) is from that very first vintage of the merged wineries - incredibly old wine and a genuine piece of Spanish wine-making history!  The wine itself is likely to be a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, possibly with some oak barrel ageing.

Please note the general condition of this lot (remarkably good for its age!).
