About Vina Zaco:

Viña Zaco is the rebellious new Rioja from Bodegas Bilbainas—a Rioja with a contemporary twist. Zaco takes its name from one of the oldest vineyards in Bodegas Bilbainas in the Rioja Alta. But that's where Zaco's links with the past begin and end. With its abundance of fresh red berries, notes of liquorice and faint undertones of spice, Zaco is the ultimate modern expression of Rioja.
