special treat!

We visited Contino's winery two years ago and fell in love with it. Their wines truly stand apart. They don't make a Reserva every year, preferring to wait until the grapes are just right. The 2014 is wonderfully full yet balanced. We enjoyed it just in its own as a special treat.

The best Rioja at this price range

I veisited Rioja in Septmeber 2016 and we were lucky enough to taste our way around the region for a week. The 2010 Contino stood out as the best find...highly recommend!

Excellent

La confirmation d'un grand vin que nous avions découvert il y a des années. Une entrée délicate et ample, une bonne tenue en bouche. Le final ne laisse pas l'impression d'un vin affichant 14 degrés. Très agréable, les St Emilion n'ont qu' à bien se tenir !

Buen vino

Excepcional vino, recomiendo muy buen vino para tomar con carnes rojas, fiambre. Color rojizo muy intenso, totalmente recomendable . Comprar

Excelente

Gran vino, tanto en nariz como en boca. Contino nunca falla. Una apuesta segura para los amantes de los tintos riojanos

Wine from Viñedos del Contino

Viñedos del Contino

Viñedos del Contino, along with Cvne (Haro) (Haro) and Viña Real, belongs to the winery group Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España. The three are located in the Rioja Alta, in Northern Spain. Its name comes from the person who was gifted with the estate lands, the "Contino" Pedro de Samaniego, one of the hundred soldiers forming the Royal Guard, in the time of the Catholic Kings, who “continually” kept watch over the monarchs and their family. From their winery installations...
