Bodegas Baigorri: An impressive winery founded in 1997 with the collaboration of the architect Iñaki Azpiazu. From a unique setting surrounded by vineyards, they produce the great variety of wines they market. All the wines, of an excellent quality and great personality, come from their own vineyards,
Rioja in northern Spain is back in the limelight. Known for its long lived Reserva and Grand Reserva wines with soft vanilla aromas, Rioja producers are today showing a range of styles. One good example of “new style Rioja without totally abandoning tradition” is Bodegas Baigorri in Rioja Alavesa, the most northern Rioja region. Baigorri is a fairly new producer who started only in 2000. We recently made a few visits to Baigorri and we were highly impressed, both by the quality of the wines and the fabulous modern design of the winery.
The vineyards surround the winery. “Here we have two meters of clay and pure limestone below”, says Matthias Lange, export and PR manager. “The roots pick up minerals down there”. The aim is to keep the natural balance in vineyard. They use a little bit of copper and sulphur to fight diseases but luckily the vines here are quite mildew resistant. They also use natural plant extracts from for instance sage for spraying on leaves. “We see that our plants are getting stronger with this”, says Matthias.
