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.
Viura is the main white variety grown in La Rioja and produces fruity wines with floral aromas and pronounced acidity, so is ideal for making both young and aged whites. This is a wine that, as a result of how it is made, displays a distinct personality. Beronia Viura is cold macerated in contact with the skins, which extracts the maximum amount of the variety’s primary aromas, followed by alcoholic fermentation for 15 days.
Complex on the nose, very fruit forward, with pineapple and white fruit dominating and some herbaceous aromas too. The wine is fresh, rounded and full-bodied on the palate, robust, intense and very persistent. The finish is long.
Ideal for drinking with starters, pasta, rice dishes, salads and white fish dishes as well as lean white meat.
