Bodegas Ysios is located in Rioja Alavesa, at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria mountain range, and lays claim to buildings designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava, with their functional and contemporary aspects entirely focused on wine production.
Dedicated exclusively to the making of Reserva wines and the most singular and select coupages, Ysios works to the highest quality standards utilising very old, 100% Tempranillo vines. The high levels at which the vineyards grow protect them from the maritime influence and favour an optimum ripening of the grapes, which are sourced from eight different areas within the districts of Laguardia and El Villar. This diversity among terroirs enables attainment of complete, fruit-forward and elegant wines that have a great variety of nuances, which clearly express the Rioja identity. The vineyards are on average 30 years old, but the winery does possess a parcel aged over 80 years old and its grapes are destined for producing the exclusive Ysios Edición Limitada.
