Biurko Gorri

Politically, part of Navarra province, Biurko Gorri are in the far north-eastern corner of appellation Rioja, on the slopes of Monte Yoar in eastern Sierra Cantabria. The Llorens family own 15 plots totalling 40 hectares of vineyards around the village of Bargota, 18kms from LogroƱo. These are organically grown vineyards lying in a rolling landscape at over 600m on poor limestone-clay soils. Bargota have been certified organic since 1998 and hand-pick fruit to produce about 300,000 bottles annually. Our work with Biurko Gorri is focused on a brilliant unwooded Tempranillo of great typicity, and increasingly with Graciano, which represents about 2% of Rioja's crush, and is a difficult to make as a varietal drink, due to its acidity.
