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.
The vines are located 400-600 metres above sea level, on East-facing hillsides of clay-limestone soil.Manual harvesting and hand-picked selection of grapes. Made in concrete tanks, with malolactic fermentation in extra-fine, 500-litre French oak barrels.
Aradón Graciano perfectly embodies the essence of the Graciano variety; native to La Rioja, pure and expressive. Bursting with lively aromas, fresh and exciting, with wild red fruits, mineral notes and hints of eucalyptus and mint. Punchy and bold. Complex and delicious. Especially suited to the curious and bold; those keen to explore. This is an unearthed treasure that will leave a lasting impression.
