History

Founded in 1896, Federico Paternina establishes this winery on a site with cellars excavated in the 16th century in Ollauri Rioja Alta. Its origins go back to Eduardo de Paternina, father of Federico and Marqués de Terán, one of the pioneers of modern viticulture in Rioja at the request of his close friend the Baron de Rothschild, who had acquired Château Brane Mouton years before.

Elaboration

Selected vineyards from Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa with calcareous clayey soils, located on slopes with good drainage and good sun exposure. After careful fermentation at temperatures not exceeding 28°C, the wine is kept in vats for 12 months to allow its stabilization.
It is then transferred to oak barrels for aging for a period of about 24 months, depending on the vintage. And finally, another 36 months in the bottle, where it continues to evolve, before going on the market.
