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

Harvested at their optimal ripeness, the grapes are destemmed and undergo a process of cold maceration. Alcoholic fermentation follows, with gentle and continuous pumping over, allowing for the extraction of the elegant aromas that characterise the grapes of this region.

Tasting notes

Bursting with lively and fresh aromas which bring to life thoughts of these Spanish villages; their people and celebrations. A full bodied young wine with a wild temperament. It leaves a pleasingly long finish and an aftertaste of red fruits and licorice.
