BODEGAS URBINA, Cuzcurrita del Rio Tiron, Rioja

5 generations of Urbinas have managed this property since the 1870s. Urbina make 'classically styled' Rioja (Gran Reservas and the like with regular racking and so forth) from their own vines and are a villagespecific producer, with their best wines all from the cold soils of Cuzcurrita del Rio Tiron, west of Haro in the Montes Obarenes zone.

A new bodega with lots of sparkling inox was installed in 1986, replacing a relatively rustic installation. Urbina have 75 hectares in Cuzcurrita (there are also some holdings in Uruñuela but these don't go into the top wines), and make 300K bottles, cropping around 4.5 t/ha. A starter of own vineyard yeast is put in motion at the commencement of the harvest and is then used to inoculate for controlled natural fermentation start-ups. Fermentation is in stainless, followed by ageing in mixed French/US oak with occasional racking. Tempranillo with some Mazuelo and Graciano.
