José Félix Arriezu
It is a project in which the entire Arriezu family and team are currently committed and involved, but which began in 2013 when our CEO and founder, José Félix Arriezu - with studies in viticulture and oenology and years of experience in the national and international wine scene - embarked on the adventure of making and, He has embarked on the adventure of making and, for the first time, bottling a 100% Verdejo wine from the grapes of his estate La Sombría, located in Pozaldez, which is fruity, fresh and authentic, but which retains the complexity of a good wine.
These roots and this vital path have led us to commit to organic farming since the 1990s, in order to be able to produce quality wines that are sustainable, consistent with our surroundings and the environment and, in short, in line with the principles that drive us.
Arriezu Vineyards is a young winery born with the aim of producing the best organic wine with grapes from its own vineyards in the Rioja and Rueda appellations.
It has 72 hectares of its own vineyards in San Adrián under the Rioja DOC, including the "Los Mejicanos" estate, a 43-hectare plot overlooking the Ebro valley and a sea of vineyards. Interestingly, this estate is the source of more than 25% of the current DOC Rioja vineyards, as for many years it has been an inexhaustible source of vine shoots for wine nurseries.
