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

Manual harvesting. Spontaneous fermentation, using the grapes’ own yeast, at temperatures lower than 26º.

Tasting notes

This wine is delicate and elegant, with smoky and toasty, mineral-driven aromas which are in perfect harmony with ripe, black fruits. Long on the palate with incredible crispness, while retaining the freshness needed to enjoy another glass. Savour this wine, drinking it slowly, as in its seven long years of life it has never been in a hurry.
