Beronia was founded in 1973 by a group of businessmen, friends from the Basque country who would come to La Rioja on holiday. The friends had a great love of food and wine and created their own gastronomic society, or txoko as it is called locally, in the area. They decided, to produce their own wines to enjoy with the local cuisine, specialising in Reserva and Gran Reserva style wines. The winery was integrated into the González Byass Family of Wine group in 1982 and began an expansion into international markets. Today Beronia is one of the most renowned Spanish wineries both in international and domestic markets, producing pure and traditional Rioja wines with their own personality and Beronia style.
Following harvest, the Viura bunches undergo static maceration without destocking for 18 hours in order to liberate aromas. The grapes are then left to settle at 5ºC and following this alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. The wine is left on its lees and in total remains in barrel for 6 months. Following bottling in October 2013 the wine will remain in bottle for 6 more months before being released to the market.
