Bottle size and vintage
In 1942 and under the presidency of Don Leandro Ardanza, the trademark was registered that has brought the winery the greatest fame: Viña Ardanza. Its most well-known brand and a wine which has continued to evolve over the years without losing any of its eminently famous characteristics.
A very fruit-forward wine, a Tempranillo and Garnacha blend, with an elegant and intense bouquet and a long aftertaste resulting from its three years spent ageing in American oak and its lengthy stay in bottle. A wine appreciated by essentially all palates, the wine which triumphs as the outright winner for grand celebrations.

Bang for your buck Rioja
This is an amazing red wine with fabulous noise, texture and flavours. A complete steal at the value - fighting well above its price range
La Rioja Alta
La Rioja Alta is one of Rioja's historic wineries, creator of such emblematic brands as Viña Ardanza, Viña Arana, Viña Alberdi, Gran Reserva 890 and Gran Reserva 940. All of their wines are excellent and clearly exemplify what it means to be a great Rioja classic these days, in present times. Their wines are elegant, complex and sophisticated like those of the past, but with more body, colour and robustness, wines adapted to the gastronomical demands of today. In short, great...
