Winemaker's Notes

The red wines of Rioja are made primarily from a grape called tempranillo (70 percent), with several other grapes blended in. Tempranillo makes a wine that is silky, has great rich flavor and is easy to drink. Rioja Tinto (Rioja red) goes great with a wide variety of foods ranging from roasted meats and robust cheeses to aperitif snacks, or tapas, such as nuts, olives and crusty bread spread with roasted garlic. The reservas can live and improve for decades.

Learn About Lorinon

In 2013 Bodegas Breton and the Lorinon brand were acquired by the Montaña family and its winemaking entity, Union de Viticultores Riojanos. UVR comprises over 350 hectares of mature to ancient vines that are either owned or under continuous contract throughout the Rioja Alta and Alavesa regions. Lorinon Crianza is almost entirely composed of old-vine Tempranillo, aged 14 months in a mixture of used American and French oak. The Reserva includes a higher percentage of the rare Graciano and utilizes a higher percentage of French oak, and is aged an additional year in bottle before release.
