Baron de Ley 'Varietales' Tempranillo, Rioja, Spain

The Essence of Rioja in a Bottle

The 2019 Baron de Ley 'Varietales' Tempranillo embodies the Rioja region's rich winemaking heritage. Barón de Ley stands as a beacon of quality and tradition in the heart of Spain's most renowned wine region. The winery, housed in a centuries-old monastery, is a testament to the area's deep-rooted history of wine production. Founded in 1985, Barón de Ley has embraced a vineyard-focused approach, drawing inspiration from the French châteaux model, to produce genuinely "de ley" wines - a Spanish expression signifying legitimacy and excellence.

A Tapestry of Terroir and Tradition

Barón de Ley's expansive vineyards, spanning over 600 hectares across various subregions of Rioja, are the cornerstone of their winemaking philosophy. This diversity of terroirs, micro-climates, and grape varieties allows the winery to craft contemporary wines that are true to their roots. Each bottle of Barón de Ley wine reflects the land from which it comes, a celebration of Rioja's essence.

Craftsmanship in Every Bottle

Specializing in Reservas and Grandes Reservas, Barón de Ley has set a new benchmark in Rioja for premium quality wines. The winery's commitment to long oak barrel aging is a nod to the region's winemaking identity, ensuring that each bottle meets the highest quality standards. The innovation and creativity of their winemakers, led by the talented Pablo Tascón, have positioned Barón de Ley as a leader in wine production. Their approach to viticulture and winemaking, including using indigenous grapes and experimental techniques, infuses each wine with a distinct personality and elegance.

With its elegant and fresh profile, this wine is a perfect companion to Spanish classics like paella or tapas.

A Family's Journey in Winemaking

The story of Barón de Ley is a narrative of family, tradition, and a deep connection to the land. Their journey from small-scale production for family and friends to a renowned winery is a testament to their dedication to the craft of winemaking.
