Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This red has density yet remains fresh and lively. Black cherry, licorice, cigar box and spice flavors mingle over light, firm tannins, fueled by balsamic and orange peel acidity that leaves a juicy, spicy finish. Graceful. Drink now through 2024.
D 91
Decanter
Aged in French oak for 27 months and a further 36 months in bottle, this wine has a subtle nose of exotic spices, fragrant wood and cherry. Fine grained tannins are followed by an intense, super-ripe wave of red fruits, with a vanillin sweetness. This intensity tails off a little on the mid-palate, but is likely to open up a bit if paired with roast lamb or given more time in the bottle. There is beautiful precision in the character of this wine, balanced all the way through by a well judged acidity.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of vanilla, tobacco, plum, currant and tomato leaf carry the nose. This

Gran Reserva from a warm vintage feels full and jammy, with plenty of fruit weight. Blackberry, black plum and chocolate flavors give way to an easy fade on a fig-laden finish.

Bodegas Beronia, Spain
Bodegas Beronia Bodegas Beronia Tasting Room Winery Image
Beronia is renowned for its Rioja Alta vineyards, its gastronomic origins and its innovative barrel program. The Rioja region is subdivided into three areas, Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa; Beronia is located in Ollauri, at the heart of Rioja Alta, with the highest elevation of the three areas. The area is influenced by both the Atlantic and Mediterranean and has a mix of clay and chalky soils.

Beronia wines are defined by the region and the soils in which the vines are grown, and its name is linked to the history of the area. During the 3rd Century BC the region, known today as La Rioja Alta, was inhabited by the ‘berones’, a Celtic tribe who called the area ‘Beronia’.

The winery was founded in 1973 by a group of friends from the Basque country who wanted the best wine to accompany their gastronomic get-togethers (called Txoko in their native Basque). The winery was acquired by Gonzalez Byass in 1982, while some of the original founders still visit the winery to dine as they have done for decades.

The winery is surrounded by 20 hectares of own vineyards. The technical team at Beronia also control 870 hectares of vineyards within a 10km radius of the winery, enabling them to exercise optimum control over the quality. Beronia’s blend is led by Tempranillo, and complemented by Graciano, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Viura. Sustainable agriculture is practiced at every level with certain vineyards certified organic.

The role of oak is key to the Beronia style. The winemaker and his team are constantly studying how the wines react to different levels of toasting and types of wood. These experiments have led to Beronia’s pioneering development of mixed barrels; produced from American oak staves and French oak tops.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
