The Eguren family have been producing balanced and expressive wines from Rioja Alavesa vines since 1870. Vitorino Eguren Ugarte is the fifth generation Eguren to cultivate the 130 hectare site (containing some vines which are over 100 years old). Now aged 82, he is joined in the vineyards by his three sons.

Our particular Eguren Ugarte favourites include:

  • the award winning Ugarte Cosecha 2012, made with Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes: soft and fruity, with a touch of vanilla from the oak;
  • from the top of the Ugarte range, the Dominio Ugarte Riserva 2010: 95% Tempranillo, this has a more pronounced oaky aroma with expressions of dark berries, herbs and spices. A balanced wine with ripe and strong tannins, it pairs excellently with all jamón and many other dishes besides.

We hope customers will enjoy to meeting Vitorino Eguren at these tastings, if you would like to learn more about Vitorino's wines please contact us.
