The wine

Eduardo and Víctor Hernáiz, current owners of Finca La Emperatriz, have decided to make substantial changes in their winemaking project. This wine in its first vintage already comes under the new Rioja category of Viñedo Singular, the highest quality category in Rioja, backed by the rigorous requirements of the Regulatory Councils (a single plot, yields below 6600kg, and with a result tasting excellent).

Finca La Emperatriz Viñedo Singular Blanco is an expressive wine, with great freshness and a long and persistent finish. The oak, perfectly integrated, accompanies a vintage suitable for white wines.

This is an estate of excellent quality whose potential had already been recognised at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878 and which concealed a very important history. The estate originally belonged to Eugenia de Montijo,...
