Aradon was a village which existed in Roman times but which mysteriously disappeared. Aradon was situated at the top of a plain with an altitude of 550 m, called “La Mesa” (The Table), which nowadays is occupied by vines of up to 90 years old, belonging to the winery. From 1957 onwards and continuing to the present day, in the village of Alcanadre, which is located 36 Km east of Logroño, vinegrowers, from Alcanadre, have chosen to pay tribute to Aradon by naming their wines after it. These wines are elaborated with fruit coming from ancestral vineyards, grown with care and expertise by our experienced vinegrowers, whose knowledge has been passed down through the generations over centuries.

Winemaking

18 hectares of selected vineyard spread out over small plots with bush vines between 35 and 100 years old. Grown in clay-limestone soil, at a height of 450-550 metres above sea level.

Traditional winemaking techniques, with 100% destemming. The grapes are macerated on their skins for 18 days, with gentle and continuous pumping over. Malolactic fermentation in concrete tanks.

Tasting notes

Prepare yourself to be surprised by this new Riojan style; full of personality and unabashedly young, with each sip charming and beguiling your senses. On the nose both maturity and youth are prominent. Reminiscent of red fruits, with wild hints. On the palate, the wine’s texture, warmth and freshness all call for just one more sip.

Neither young nor crianza, only Momento.
