Contino | Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa
Contino’s winery is all about pure Bordeaux "château" style. The winery is surrounded by its spectacular vineyards, situated by an Ebro river meander, in Laserna, a district of Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa. Next to the winery there is an extraordinary Graciano plantation, which the oenologist Jesús Madrazo perfectly knows how to make a profit of it. Their top wine is the highly well-known Viña del Olivo, which master Madrazo is proud to show whenever he is challenged to a vertical tasting. In any case, for Contino the most important wine is Contino Reserva, worked year after year to remain the undisputed leader.
