In 1942 and under the presidency of Don Leandro Ardanza, the trademark was registered that has brought the winery the greatest fame: Viña Ardanza. Its most well-known brand and a wine which has continued to evolve over the years without losing any of its eminently famous characteristics.

A very fruit-forward wine, a Tempranillo and Garnacha blend, with an elegant and intense bouquet and a long aftertaste resulting from its three years spent ageing in American oak and its lengthy stay in bottle. A wine appreciated by essentially all palates, the wine which triumphs as the outright winner for grand celebrations.

One of the very best of Rioja's produced from fruit exclusively grown in the bodega's 360 hectare vineyard holdings in the Rioja Alta region, and named after one of the Region's founding families. Remaining under family ownership, this is of the most sought-after bodegas. Complex and perfumed primary and secondary aromas of earth, spice and red fruits with a long, elegantly structured medium weight body of spicy tannins and layers of flavour. Enjoy over the next decade as the richness and power will soften to spice and earth, augmenting game casserole or wild duck.

Viña Ardanza is produced from Tempranillo (80%) and Grenache (20%). The Tempranillo vines are 30 years old and originate from the estates: La Cuesta and Montecillo, located in Fuenmayor and Cenicero (La Rioja Alta). The Grenache vines on the other hand, originate from Tudelilla (La Rioja Baja) planted at 600 meters above sea level. La harvest is completed by hand and transported in refrigerated containers to better conserve the grapes. Once in the winery the must is fermented at a controlled temperature for 15 days. The grape varieties are aged separately. Tempranillo is aged for 36 months in American oak barrels, and Grenache for 30 months also in American oak. The wine is manually racked, up to at least 6 times before being botted.
